This restaurant was a favourite of ours but it closed and moved to a new venue. We tried it recently and were disappointed.
The mixed seafood starter was of poor quality. The calamari was tough like elastic bands. The pizzas were very average and the dough was thicker than previously made. Not an improvement.
There was a constant smell of gas which didn't add to the enjoyment of our evening.
We hope it will improve.

Oh my god - we can't believe how this restaurant can be no. 3 in San Feliciano. This was the worst dinner experience ever in more than 20 years of Italian travels!!
The place was basically empty when we arrived and the waiter seated us directly next to the dreadfully loud TV that made any conversation at the table impossible. The service in general was okay. For drinks, we ordered draught beer and water. The water in the bottle was the best of the whole evening. The beer was old and undrinkable. For reasons of politeness (as we are foreigners in Italy), we didn't say anything - big mistake.
We ordered gnocchi and 3 pizzas. The gnocchi were okay, nothing bad to say about them, nothing good, either. The pizzas ... unbelievable. The dough was so hard you couldn't cut it (the knives they provide you with are cheap junk that don't cut anything). It was soaked with tomato from the package. All other ingredients tasted old. None of us ate all of it. The plates looked like a mess so the waiter even asked if it wasn't good. No, it wasn't, sorry. He just didn't say anything. Not one word of sorry or an act of compensation.
Don't go there - it's a big waste of money and a threat to your health!!!

The four star rating on TA seems a bit excessive. We went for starters and pizza since it was close to where we were staying and it was supposed to be our last night here.

We sat outside under what is best to be described as scaffolding underneath a straw roofing. Looking out over a car park with the trasimeno lake beyond that. Due to rain and thunder we went back inside. With good help of the waiter, I might add. Inside the place is far more welcoming and cosy. Get a seat indoors.

Starters were okay. Bruschette miste not surprising, but good. Bresaola came with dry lettuce.

Pizze were okay. Mine was topped with sausage, delicious. My wifes pizza was topped with quattro formaggi, but not that great. No real Italian cheezes to be tasted. Just a mix of it all. It somehow tasted like Dutch cheese was used?

You will be far better off driving to anothere pizzeria in the near surroundings.

Plus: the staff is very cool! Really friendly, taking an interest towards our daughter, giving her two bouncy balls. Top!

We ended up at this restaurant as we were ready for dinner at 6.30! The waiters were eating when we arrived, but it wasn't a problem and we were shown to an outside table (our choice.)
You can just about see the lake from the garden, however there is a huge car park in between the waterfront and the lake, so no nice views.
The food was simple, but well presented and my hubby says the review title should be "tasty dinner"
We had 1980's style starters, prawn cocktail and melon and prosciutto, with lamb and calamari for main course. Surprising good house red and water came to €50.
Good food served with a smile!
