We wandered in on a rainy Wednesday afternoon in early June. It was empty, and we asked if they could make us lunch. Of course! The owners came out and recommended the most wonderful dishes. A really lovely meal in a lovely place.

We are a restaurant and "boarding house" therefore by us you can eat and at the same time enjoy a relaxing holiday on the beautiful setting of Lake Maggiore.
Unfortunatly, we do not offer an amazing position on the lake but you can savour deliciuos home made food,always prepared according to the season. Do not be surprise then, if sometimes we don't have Lake fish! We respect the fishing prohibition.
Let your self pumper from a cosy enviroment!

We are based on the street which brings to FUNIVIA, JUST IN FRONT THE CAR- PARK OF THE CHURCH
