It offers prime location with the views onto the lake. Except you might be seated in a room looking at the wall without an option of lake view. Not from the garden, not from the room even if you place request when reservation is done...More

We ate here for my partners birthday and the meal and restaurant didn't disappoint. The food was brilliant with very little to criticise and we were absolutely stuffed by the time we'd finished our meal. I'd asked the waitress for advice on the wine and...More

Going for lunch on a perfect spring day, the patio had an amazing view over the lake. Service was attentive and efficient and friendly, without being intrusive. The prices are as stratospheric as the views, but the food is absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, with attention...More

You simply must eat here, it is fantastic! The view is lovely, the staff delightful and the food amazing. We have eaten here for dinner, lunch and we enjoy the breakfasts when we stay in the hotel. Truly memorable

We were staying nearby in Ranco and celebrated our wedding anniversary at Il Sole di Ranco. We had a wonderful experience - the wonderful view - very good attentive service and we very much enjoyed the food. Courtesy of a thunderstorm, we enjoyed the first...More

Perfect location. Views of the Lago are perfect from the terraces. Wine list of non-Italian wines is highly overpriced, and all in the 1990-2000 range... so many should have been served already. Fritto Misto is a main-course that will fly in a simple restaurant. Not...More
