Taken to the Ristorante Grotto Sant'Anna for lunch on a busy public holiday we struggled to find parking space as it is 'set' within a spot that caters to cave divers, people enjoying sunning themselves down at the water or simply using the limited parking as somewhere to leave their car to begin their walk. A delightful spot.

When you get into the restaurant you are suddenly cut off from that world and enter a peaceful one where you can enjoy a wonderful lunch. Well run, the service professional and attentive and the food is somewhat of a surprise. Excellent in presentation, in its offering and quality.

I noticed another reviewer mentioned the Pinot Grigio- well we equally enjoyed this.

No, this is a place where you not only simply enjoy the setting, the simple but clear refinement but the way they strive to offer good food and service.

Full of local people knowing good food and where to go when they want a more sophisticated treat.

The discovery of this restaurant was so refreshing compared to those crowded with camping tourists on the lakeside.

The service is excellent and run by an experienced and professional maître d'hôtel.
We describe the cuisine as sophisticated modern Italian with local fresh products.The recommended Pinot Grigio from Friuli that was served by the maître was succulent.

We returned to spent our last night in Piedmonte in the Grotto Sant'Anna and had another great time. We drank two bottles of a millesimé sparkling that was as good as a fine Champagne. Prices of dishes and wines are about the same as in the center of Cannobio.
Only this quality is better.

Just got in here on a Friday evening without booking, but we were lucky.
Not cheap, but given the prices others are charging for less good food this is a good choice overall with excellent food and service, plus an extensive wine list.
Located out of town by about 2 km on the SP75 road behind the church.
Can be cool in the evenings, so be aware, but otherwise highly recommended.

having read about this wonderful little restaurant, tucked into the Gorge, it came right up to expectations. Gorgeous weather, great welcome from the owner(?) and a lovely Italian country meal in ideal surroundings. Not crowded, we were lucky, visited in mid July 2013
