Description: Earth and water, tradition and future. In the essence of the elements you can find the philosophy of cooking, which is funny and happy and wants to offer emotions and memories. Augustine Sala balances high quality products and thinks of equilibrium: a first sight to the garden vegetables and another one to the lake and to the other elements of the italian cooking. Behind his dishes you can find a story to tell, a memory to share, a surprise to show, an innovation to make, to taste, to build.

This restaurant is a true gem, sitting out over the shores of Lake Maggiore. Just to sit sipping excellent wine and enjoying excellent food with views over Lake Maggiore and small towns/villages, is wonderful. An experience not to be missed. Is a bit pricey, but well worth every euro.

“AC does not work well”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We visited this place on July 3, and the temp in Chicago was near or at 100. The outside was just as hot as the inside. Everyone was complaining about the AC and they said they could not do anything about it.....sweat was running down everyone's face. The food was good, but you could not enjoy it because of the sauna temps in this place. If you go, go when you can sit outside or in the winter....if it's hot .... just stay away!

“Arrive by launch”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

This was an unbelievable find on lake maggiore. Excellent food and service. Wonderful choice with 'specials' that are worth trying. Pasta is as good as you will get. go with the flow and suggestions.
Dining room extends out on to the small harbour servicing the restaurant and other local houses.
I diode not find this overpriced for the quality. Extensive wine selection with moderate prices. You can drive there but we arrived in style in our own launch from the other side of the lake. Waiter helped us time up the boat and we then had Prosecco outside before dinner. Play some Pavarotti there and back to make it an unforgettable experience.

“Not worth the price”
Reviewed 3 June 2012 via mobile

The meals are miniscule. The cooking is weird, I did not like a single meal. Service is great overall but the white wine was served warm. I regret visiting this place.

“great position, beautiful food and excellent service. Very expensive”
Reviewed 18 October 2011

Right on the Lake with lovely gardens. Very traditional decor which added enormously to the attraction of this very well run family hotel.
