We loved the food and the wine! You have to try the sea bass and the tiramisu. The owner is very nice and the staff gives their best for you.

The service was exceptional and the restaurant owner was really fun and friendly. The food was excellent especially the steak. Would definately recommend. Its down a quiet street but keep walking and you'll find it. A brilliant evening, thank you!

Beautifull little restau, with friendly familial service who speaks some french. Probably the best beef around the lake, and fresh mushrooms. Good red whine and prosecco

The menu is very appealing and the choice is difficult, because the balance between meat and fish is really fine. Just to mention two dishes, which must be chosen: Paccheri con cipollotto fresco scottato ,ricotta di pecora e olio al pesto; Costata di TOMAHAWK alla...griglia. Do not forget the sweets, they are very good. Staff effective ... leave them to help you in the choice of the dishes.More

A hidden gem in the back alleys of the village. Our Italian is non existent but we were made to feel more than welcome!! Unfortunately I did not ask the owners name!! Only had anti pasta but really delicious, oh and a gorgeous carafe of...house wine.More

We were lucky to find this restaurant off the beaten track but very close to where we were staying. Can’t recommend highly enough - very friendly, great atmosphere, delicious food and very reasonably priced. We enjoyed so much we went twice and my husband had...the beef fillet both times and said it was done to perfection. I also recommend the profiteroles. Everything we had was really good. Also some lovely tasters brought out before the starters both times.More

All the food made in site was absolutely amazing. Full of flavour and presented well. Dishes a good size and staff very friendly. One of the best restaurants so far. Unfortunately the deserts seemed to be bought pre made and were disappointing. Also they only...have normal coke, no Coke Zero or cola light. Would go back and get desert elsewhere!!!More

It’s a true gem, well hidden, and for those lucky enough to find it, an amazing experience awaits: the service, the food, the atmosphere. We had some great pastas, an amazing pork cutlet and some white wines that where outstanding. We were there with two...kids and they felt very welcome. Absolutely fantastic, thank you!More
