One very popular restaurant. This restaurant is very busy with locals and tourists alike, which must say something about the quality of the food offered. Good portions and good service but this is a fish restaurant, with most fish caught fresh from the lake that day, so do not expect a variety of meat dishes and vegetarian really does not exist.

This small fishing village on the island, only has a few restaurants and this seems to be the main one. When you get off the boat, turn sharp left and follow the cobbled road. The restaurant is on the left side.

The food is good but expensive and a tourist menu seems to exist as well as a menu for the locals!! However, good location, good service and good food. Great views across the lake and open until late evening. Popular so be early!

Owner is a local fisherman.

Locanda does, indeed, set by the lake. As with many Island restaurants, it is glass enclosed to provide a lake view. Locanda is owned and operated by a family of active fishermen, and is recognized by Slow Food, at least for its oil preserved sardines. The day we had lunch there, the menu was unremarkable. The house made salumi were not exceptional, and the spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce was workman-like. The fish soup was a solid presentation, but not out of the ordinary. Decent wine list and service.

Firstly, the lake view is the perfect setting for a fresh fish meal...No a complicated gourmet experience. My fish lasagna was melt-in-your mouth and my husband's linguini with fish in olive oil could not have been simpler nor more delicious! We followed that with a lake fish breaded with parmesan served with polenta...very delicate and also delicious. Top all that with a chocolate tortino with white chocolate sauce and espresso.... pure bliss.
