After a couple of visits for both lunch and dinner can vouch that all dishes are of good if not excellent quality and offers good value. Unpretentious environment - gets so much better if able to sit outside and view the lake and mountains.

We ate at this restaurant the first night we were in Tremezzo, as we just wanted a quick meal. We had a pizza along with a carafe of house wine. It was good and very reasonably priced. The service was also good. The reason that i only gave an average rating was that we also tried all the other restaurants in the same vicinity and i have to say, that there were other restaurants that we preferred. Maybe, if i had tried something different, then my review may have been better. It wasn't bad, it was just that others were better.

We ate lunch at this restaurant. It was very overpriced for what you get and service was grumpy and rude (apart from the English waitress). Felt very disappointed with this choice as the other two restaurants next door looked far better value. Portions very small. Would not recommend.

We enjoyed our meal here. Provided good value compared to other local restaurants. I had clams with spaghetti and chilli which were very tasty. My wife had Norwegian salmon, unfortunately a little over cooked but again a very tasty meal.
