Located on the waterfront in Lecco. This upscale restaurant serves great food priced accordingly. We ate outside in the well-protected overhang of the upper floors of the building above. We ordered the meat and cheese board antipasti - tagliatelle di salumi, which we would recommend as an authentic starter for anyone travelling in Italy. Next course was a risotto with Parmesan and perch fillets caught in local Lake Como - something only available here. Yum! Smooth and buttery, the perch were golden brown and crispy. Next course was six gamberoni (prawns). Good but pricey. We had a local white wine but unfortunately all wines at this restaurant were pricey no matter where they were from. Dessert was picked from a table inside - my wife had pannecotta with raspberry coulis, she picked for me an apple crostata (open faced apple pie with cookie crust) and a welcome change from the overly sweet desserts common to Italy. Very good. Finished off with caffe macchiato - perfect. They forgot to include the dessert on our bill. We brought this to the attention of our waiter, but after going inside, he came back out and indicated there would be no charge. And a moment later provided us with two free limoncello liqueurs.

The pizza is hand made, in real wood oven, really thin and the staff is super friendly and respectful. A hidden gem with perfect view and location in this small and beautiful city.

We went there for lunch . I took one of the best pizza in my life. My wife had fish and risotto. The service is very good. The coffee delicious. They serve fresh food . When it's hot the terrace is good place to be.

Having read the previous reviews I was looking forward to my dinner here but in the end felt very underwhelmed. The service was slow and they were definitely running on short staff. Our waiter was doing everything front of house and covering around 10 tables. He had no other help at all other than in the kitchen. The pizza was okay only but the seafood pasta was over cooked and the grilled octopus was over cooked and very dry. We complained about the octopus and got a shrug of the shoulders in response. It was still on the bill too, so they decided that it was not worth discounting at all. We were so unimpressed with the main courses that we did not bother with the desserts. Personally I would say that this restaurant is not good value for money and the service and care is poor.

The price for dessert is nothing to compare with fantastic taste!!! We had ice cream vanilla +strawberry and Pana cotta. Grilled sliced meat also were very good!
