A very pretty setting for a restaurant and we would have liked to have stayed longer but had to catch the ferry back to Stresa. This restaurant specialises in fish and we were not disappointed. The meal was well cooked and tasty. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

An excellent trattoria on a wonderful island. They have a very picturesque terrace with a lake view. The staff is a most hospitable and friendly. Fantastic fish dishes at a decent price. Highly recommended as a highlight of the journey around the islands.

When we first walked up it looked like the restaurant seating was on a pretty little dock. We of course wanted to be seated there but as it turns out we were seated on the rooftop of the actual restaurant which was located behind the dock. This afforded us wonderful views! Loved the friendly waitresses! We started with jambon in... More

This restaurant is right on the water with great views. The fish was excellent as was the salad. Lemon cake was only average. Very much worth a visit.

This place starts at the lake and keeps going up. We tried this as a result of past reviews and weren't disappointed. We chose a set menu and fish was the star attraction on every course, whether cold and marinated as the first course, in a pasta dish for the second and gently fried for the third. The food was...

Service great, location great, price great, food great! We ordered cannelloni hand made, and it truly was hand made!! Yum! Definitely recommend this lovely place for lunch while you are island hopping. It is on the left, just as you get of your boat!

Great place to stop for lunch when touring the Islands. We were a party of 8 and they were able to accommodate us immediately and we had terrific, attentive service. Good food with a wide variety to choose from on the menu. Moderately priced. Only downside was it was located right at the drop off point for several of the... More

Great place to have lunch in the midst of the island tours, particularly for local lake fish. Get a carafe of white wine and relax on the terrace. Really enjoyed the seafood sampler, carpaccio, and grilled fish. Staff was busy, hard to get a table. One staff was particularly attentive.

The location is very nice, but the food is only decent (except for the typical lemon cake dessert, which was very good) and part of the staff very unprofessional. They would write down your order on a piece of paper left on your table and the personnel would check that paper about every 5-10 minutes during your stay. One serving... More
