We arrived and waited for 10 minutes before anyone served us. We ordered our food and waited again. However the carbonara and Cesar salad was amazing.
Cost 30 euro for not much, you paid for the view.

We were assigned a table under a sunshade on the terrace closest to the lake. This was the perfect spot given that we had lunch there on a bright but not excessively hot mid-summer day. It is normal that at a restaurant in such a splendid location one has to pay a certain premium. However, we were relieved to gather from the menu that this premium is only of the order of 20% compared to Italian style restaurants of a similar standing in the center of Klagenfurt. When the weather is nice this is a premium worth paying given the fantastic view at the lake.

The outside seating at the lakeside seems to be the main attraction of “Trattoria Pizzeria Villa Lido”, as this place is officially called. Apart from that there were no highlights to be reported. The young staff was rather indifferent. But service was swift and preparation of our dishes did not take long either.

At least on a Sunday there are no dishes of the day. But the permanent menu is comprehensive. Although this restaurant is equipped with a dedicated pizza oven we did not go for pizza, favored by most guests at the surrounding tables. While the carpaccio and the mussels we had were good, the chicken salad lacked proper seasoning. Altogether we were quite satisfied by the cuisine of “Villa Lido”, but not enthusiastic about it.

The place is just lovely , just beside puff one of the most beautiful lakes in Austria with a view on the mountains. Food is good , we had Pizzas which were crispy and well loaded with delicious ingredients. But we are still dreaming off this outstanding Tiramisu , never in our life we had a better one , this was a dream. Service is friendly but the management has obviously lack of planning skills. As a group of 6 people they could not manage to serve food in the same time , each person got served separately. You also need to book a room some days in advance unless you don't mind to sit inside in a cloud of garlic from the pizza oven.

Beautiful surroundings, looking onto Lake Wothersee. Good coffee, sandwiches and applestrudel. A little pricey.

We decided to come back after a FANTASTIC experience last year... Oh boy, were we disappointed!

Service: obviously understaffed with the Ironman event happening! 1)Inexperienced staff saw customers waiting at the door but turned away and avoided us instead of asking if we have been served
2) after we were finally seated, we waited 20 mins for the menu
3) 4 of us ordered starters followed by main but only 1 starter appeared. The other 3 starters appeared 20 mins later!
4) 2 mains were returned as they were wrong orders! To our horror, instead of returning the pizzas to the kitchen, the server went around the nearby tables asking if it was their orders!
5)I had the seafood spaghetti which was my favourite last year! When it arrived, it was a pale plate of food completely different from my experience last year. It was blend, pasta was a tad overcooked. I left more than half of the food behind.

I do hope this was a genuine case of a one-night 'off' where it was just not happening in every sense for the staff and restaurant. If We decide to go back again during our week's stay, I promise to write another review if it is a different experience since it was genuinely one of our favourite restaurants last year!
