We ordered 4 different dishes and only 2 were average, 1 was terrible- the dumplings were ok but the sauce was VERY BITTER that it was impossible to eat it. Spagetti carbonara was full of pepper, even I like middle spicy food but this one burned my mouth.... It was the worst dinner during our stay in Lombardy.

Just a great place to unwind. We enjoyed ourselves in the late afternoons, and even later in the evenings.

We ate at this restaurant twice and both times all in our group were pleased with the results. Both times we ate outside. Not the best view (ferry station) but food was good.

Stopped for a quick lunch after stepping off of the ferry and were pleasantly surprised to have one of the best meals of our trip. The sautéed whitefish and roasted potatoes were served very hot and were delicious.

Not too good, too salty and the risotta wasn't completely cooked. But ambiance was great and they pass out blankets when chilly! We enjoyed the experience.

Imaginative dishes, some of the best food I've had traveling Italy and very friendly staff make this place an easy recommendation.
