Description: The restaurant La Piazzetta is located in the heart of Argegno, and it is the result of the cohesion between tradition and innovation. Our chief aim is the satisfaction of our clientele. First and foremost, here you can find simple dishes, top-notch produces and first-rate reception. Furthermore, we take a great care of the atmosphere, thanks to a careful and accurate musical selection: any visit becomes an event. We always try to improve ourselves: we are open seven days a week, and we prepare only seasonal dishes with seasonal produces. La Piazzetta is not a mere place to frequent, but an interpretation of your situations: a break, a ceremony, a meeting, a date or a lifestyle

We were on our way from Bellagio back to the airport and stopped as this little restaurant for lunch. The staff were very attentive despite sitting down at the time the restaurant was "closing." We were there on June 2, 2014 which is a national holiday. We had great pizza and moved on to MXP in Milan. When we went to check into the hotel, my husband realized he had left his "man purse" on the back of his chair in the restaurant-- OUTDOORS! We drove back 1.5 hours to the restaurant because we could not recall the name or the town we had stopped in to call them. His passport, cash and camera were in that bag. The proprietor had seen it, taken it inside and looked for a way to phone us- but alas- no id or business cards.... This was a happy ending to a very tense day and we have nothing but praise for the fact that he was there with the restaurant still open waiting. "i knew you would return for that passport." Not only was their food great but also the wine. They even brought me out a glass seeing how I was in tears over the ordeal. Thanks again to a great owner of this restaurant. We wish you all the greatest success. For those of you who scoff at Italy as a place to always watch your belongings....here is a different sort of place in a very touristy area where one generally expects the worst. As to comments about it being pricey- all I can say is that they had not been to Bellagio. I thought the prices were very fair for the food. Next time we hope to try the larger menu- thanks again!

We had good pizza here but felt it was quite pricey overall. Service was good though and we have nothing to compare it with price wise.

The restaurant was amazing. The staff was very polite and helpful, the ambient was very nice and the place was very cozy. The view of the lake was extraordinary.
The food was really delicious (both the pizza and the pasta), well cooked and the portions were satisfactory.
The desserts were very delicious (although a little expensive compared with the food prices).

Pricing: 2 pasta, 1pizza, 1 bottle of wine and three desserts about 70 euros

Definitely a place to go!!!!!!!

We found this place by accident really...we had other, more casual, plans for the evening which were thwarted so we ended up here not looking our best! BUT this restaurant deserves a little bit of dressing up for!
From the outside it did not look all that special but the minute we went upstairs (it was too cold to eat outside that evening!) we knew we were into something special!
GREAT staff! Great imaginative menu and a comprehensive wine list!
We were not that hungry so shared a starter...prawns wrapped in serrano ham with a mushy pea like "dip"...brilliant!
We both had just a pasta dish as a main course...both were just fabulous! Well done the chef!
When we return to the area again this will be BOOKED before we leave....so we are know we will get in!
