This was our favourite restaurant, the staff very friendly and a good and varied menu. Very popular with both holiday makers and locals. Eating el fresco or inside was equally enjoyable. Very accommodating for families as well as couples. If fact a good all rounder restaurant. Would recommend booking in season.

We were there for one dinner only... The staff was so friendly, the food was ok, but nothing special. We were waiting so long time for the food... Even they were not taking all at same time. The cost is a bit high as well.

Very nice pizza and pasta restaurant with the lovely lakeside views of Gravedona. We arrived too early for dinner, upon our return they had reserved a table for us.

Our hotel owner recommended the place, but warned us about a change of management. The place looked full, so we decided to give it a go. 1) it took ages for them to come and take our order. They prioritised giving other tables the bills or taking the order for a dessert. 2) finally managed to get their attention and... More

Staff were accommodating and friendly- they let us sit on the covered patio while it rained and the restaurant was getting ready to open. The food was delicious and the wine was wonderful. Highly recommend.

Just love this place! Great food, and lovely atmosphere. We've been coming here since 2008, and it's absolutely wonderful to sit outside, both during spring, summer and autumn. During high season it's packed with people, both locals and tourists, and the best is to book a table. We always forget that, so usually we have to wait for 15-20 minutes... More

Excellent service, very attentive and quick. Good menu with delicious food and wine. We took our 9 month old baby and they were very sweet, with good facilities. Well worth going.

We found this restaurant on a rainy August evening. Packed full - mainly of locals - we assumed it must be OK. We were right. A big bowl of mussels in an amazing tomato, wine and garlic sauce, Pizza Fiorentina and a 1/2 litre of Chianti did it for me. Inexpensive.
