“limited choice”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Very limited menu, only 2 primis and only 2 mains- Nice place full of character inside but a long drive from anywhere.
I had anticipated more choice and based upon the location, time of year and many animals on the farm I was expecting some options to include lamb alas...None of the dishes were a reflection of those shown on their website or the MENU PRIMAVERILE
It is also not cheap when taken in consideration with other similar establishments in the hills above lake como

Dear Guest,

thank for your kind feedback, that is very important for us, for to help to improve our service...

But, about your consideration related the limited menu, i have 3 importants comments to expalain...:

1) We are not a restaurant and our menu is a "mini-carte", that change all days...

2) The "Menu Primavera" is a custum menu, that is visible in the italian webpage only and is on demand and for 6/8 peoples only, like is indicated in italian language, on our official website....

3) The lam that you was expected to eat, is normally prepared for Easter period only, and not still ready, when you are stayed on our agriturismo...

So, i think that you do not have good understand our italian webpage, about our restaurant description and i hope however, to can host you again, mybe a next time in the summer period, where we have various local and farm products and the menu is more various...

My Best Regards,

Agriturismo Al-Marnich
