Great location on the piazza opposite the lake, good spot for watching the world go by. Great for just a drink or to eat as well. Recommend tuna Panini for a light bite, and also the lasagne.

What a lovely place to visit when you are alone, with your partner, family or friends. The locals are very friendly, they do hit speak much englisch but they always try to help.

Basic would be a complement. The spaghetti carbonara was dry(!) with half a dozen industrial bacon bits consisting of mainly fat. Tasted solely of pepper. Cheap and you dont get what you pay for.
