Tasty and low fat food. We ate fish and carbonara.Both were extremely good. Moreover, the antipasti were also good. I suggest a tortino and a mixed salad.The only disadvantage is the high bill.It was 25 € per person.

We escaped the local grand hotel and enjoyed a leisurely meal here. We had lovely food made iof excellent quality raw materials expertly cooked. Had a special of lake carp on risotto bianco and my OH had a first rate steak as well as antipasti and desserts.

The service was fantastic and very friendly. To see the family amuse a child diner was heart warming and touching.

The food was very good. It was a quiet night, which meant more attention as a patron. You can sit back a little from the road, although still outdoors, which seems to lessen the impact of traffic.

Now under new management since May 2014, the whole family help out here providing a warm welcome to all.
The menu is short but varied enough to provide something for everyone. The meat is top quality, beautiful marbled tender beef, and the veal flavoursome and delicate and well prepared by Ricardo, head of the family. The pasta cooked al dente with the right amount of sauce. Try and get them to give you the carbonara, not a standard menu dish but an occasional special, and worth trying. The wine list is still a bit restricted but very fairly priced.
The setting is dream like looking across the lake to Bellagio, and has flowered bowers. Truly charming!

Enjoyed meals here twice and watched the sunset on Bellagio from this completely restored, lovely family run restaurant.

Food is important to me and it hits the spot here. Steaks were juicy, fresh and cooked to order. Pasta Carbonara is homemade from a centuries' old recipe - I actually believe this as it was soooo good. Check out the Tiramiso - the other side of the family's special recipe.

While enjoying your dinner outside under a canopy of roses, you can watch the light dim across the lake and Bellagio start to glow. They were in no rush to push us out even though there were people waiting for tables - so we did leave...but I would have stayed. Truly a wonderful, relaxing, "why you come to Italy" restaurant.

I have no need for take-away but I did notice many people from the local hotels lining up for the Pizza. And - we hear that the happy hour is great fun so we will try that and I'll update.

If you are visiting Villa Carlotta - it is worth the 5-7 minute walk up lake to enjoy this spot. Lunch under the canopy is great too!
