I was worried about coming here based on the very mixed reviews. But it was a Monday off-season and most other places were closed so we went for this one. Meh.
My mushroom pasta was just ok. The portion was unattractivley large and the Parmiggiano - tasteless. And it was very disappointing to get low quality oil to put on top. Not extra virgin, which is cheap and readily accessible in Italy, and not even virgin, but a mix of virgin and refined (and by the taste, largely refined).
My side of grilled vegetables was good - peppers, zucchini, and eggplant were hot and tasty even without the horrible oil I wasn't about to use.
My husband's pasta was ok, but his second dish (from the meat menu) wasn't that great. The crostata (allegedly made in house) was very good. The best part of the meal by far.
Service was inattentive and our courses did not come at the same time. Not much of an atmosphere either.
Can't recommend.

Lovely meal again the staff were very helpful with my lactose intolerance. Menu only in Italian but the staff spoke good English. There was a page at the back of the menu stating allergen information but the numbers weren't on the menu which is a shame.

A nice location in a small courtyard close to piazza Motta.
The food and the wine tasted ok but the service could have ben better.

Ate two nights in this restaurant and have done so in previous years. Good quality meals at reasonable prices, served by friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

It’s amazing how things can change just by walking 25 meters off the main tourist drag. That’s why we recommend this restaurant. It feels like a traditional trattoria and certainly looks like one on the inside. It’s a family run place with excellent service. There’s seating inside and outside under cover. You can actually see old buildings without any tourist shops when eating outside as we did. It felt like a completely different town when eating here. The restaurant wasn’t crowded at all during our weekday lunch. Why would it be when everyone is 25 meters away at the splashy tourist joints. Everything we had here was great, with the exception of the bread. It was fresh. But it was very white and not very chewy. We had this same bread the day before in another town nearby. Maybe it’s the local bread in this area. We recommend to the restaurant that it look into more chewy Italian bread. We want to add that the red house wine was excellent and deserves special mention. And the prices here are surprisingly reasonable in such a touristy town. PS – the Google maps location is wrong. It’s on the other side of Via Olina (not the lake side).
