As it was still high season-go-go for the staff, we didn't mind the service at night being a tiny bit slow. We enjoyed the food and appreciated the lady's choice for wine with our dinner. Before leaving the area the next day, we went in...More

Seemed nice but was really disappointing, pasta with hare was not very nice and with lot of small hard things in it. House wine tasted like a bit like yeast. Service initially good but slow and unpleasant towards the end.

One of many restaurants in Volltera to choose from but this one had a good pasta menu. Three of us had three different pastas all were good without being great. Nice salad and desserts served by friendly staff.

We ate here as it was recommended by the hotel for fish. It was busy and the staff were very welcoming. We had the fish pasta with olive and tomato, which was excellent, and the calamari with pasta.

Four of us stopped here for lunch after seeing all the stickers on the door and reviewing the menu. The location was great. Beautiful sunny day with nice breeze blowing. So many little things wrong. The bottle of local wine we had was excellent. One...More

We did not enjoy the meal unfortunately. It was not good at all. We ordered different types of pasta and were disappointed. The proportion quality/ price is not correct. The restaurant next to us had food that look amazing compared to our. Avoid this place...More
