Food is not bad but within (or slightly below) the surroundings average. This is the third time that we come alone or with friends and the service is always slow. Today alone (Monday, half tables empty), it's been 50 minutes (still) waiting for seabass and a pizza. No excuse or explanation given so far. This is the last time I come to this place.

So, in summary, you will like the place if you enjoy waiting for your dishes while talking to friends...

We were on a tour of the 7 lakes when we made friend with a local (Vincenzo) and he recommended us this restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised to find such a great service and the best pizza we ever had!
coming from the States we are used to a very average pizza and this was definitely a memorable one!

My family and I are looking forward to come back to Italy and we'll definitely make a stop here as we come back...

I've eaten here several times over the past few years. They are known for their award winning and world record pizzas, which are delicious. But equally as delicious are their fresh pasta dishes, Italian specialties and home made desserts.if you are in the verse area, definitely stop by. You won't be sorry.

1. This place is huge. People were waiting outside to get a table! Allthough being busy the waiter took his time with us and everyone else. We never waited more than 10 minutes for are food.

2. We had a fishplatter as an appetizer which was fantastic! Yum!
As are Maincourse we ate Pizza! Now this is the place in Italy where you want to eat pizza! I have been to Italy since a kid and mainly have eaten Pizza. By far the best Pizza.
We didn't finish all and put the leftovers in a takeaway box. For dessert we split the Panna Cotta and Tiramisu.... Homemade and Yummy :)

3. Location is alright. We sat outside in the garden which was nice. Personally I didnt like the Lights. This could be better. This is the restaurant where Locals go out to eat.

4. Gave a good tip and we were perfectly happy with everything.

5. The bad comments must be snobs haha
