This 'bar' offers very affordable food and friendly service. It has a terrace at the front and in the garden at the back. It is frequented by both locals and tourist and provides a nice relaxed atmosphere.

We called in here after returning from a brisk walk to the church high above Cadenabbia.
Had a medium beer and half litre of red wine together with a Bresola and Goats cheese Panini.
Big Buon Giorno from the very friendly locals and ordered what we wanted. This was brought straight out to our table followed about 10 minutes later by the delicious sandwich.
We returned on the morning we were leaving Cadenabbia for lunch. We had a Napoli Pizza,, Like a Margheritta with anchovies. Lovely thin based and delicious topping and piping hot, and a Merrangue Ice Cream with a couple of beers. We were the only customers and had the same fantastic service. A lovely lasting reminder of our stay at La Villa Mirabella in Cadenabbia

Our wedding party stayed a two minute walk away at Griante Residence and we visited the bar most evenings! Fantastic place! Great pizza, pasta and ice cream for kids (& adults). Closes at 2am, but owners will sort you out with a table, candle and drinks outside, before locking up and leaving you to it! Locals are all very friendly and helpful! Can't wait to go back!

If you are staying in Cadenabbia, you really must visit this pretty little bar which is only about 15 minutes walk from the town.
You must taste the coffee which is served with a big Italian smile and the local lager is good. It's a pity they don't serve food here - only snacks.
As we were sipping our coffee, in the morning sunshine, we chatted to the locals and were treated to a taste of the local cheese. Delicious!
