This is the fine restaurant of Monte Isola - which has no so many restaurants altogether...

The terrace offers a great view on the lake and you can access it by boat.

There is a real sense of cuisine in the restaurant and a wish to make the most of local fish and seafood and offer a view of local and traditional dishes. You have to be really into fish to enjoy.

Not cheap.

My 4 friends and I visited this restaurant last Friday thanks to Maria Passoti of GoodFoodGoodMood.it She had kindly arranged for us to meet the proprietor first so that he could explain to us his life fishing on the lake and the preparation of the fish. We then had a lunch of different fish dishes (all fish from the lake) which we all agreed was well presented and beautifully cooked. Oh and there is the lake and the views as well. A great lunch.

One very popular restaurant. This restaurant is very busy with locals and tourists alike, which must say something about the quality of the food offered. Good portions and good service but this is a fish restaurant, with most fish caught fresh from the lake that day, so do not expect a variety of meat dishes and vegetarian really does not exist.

This small fishing village on the island, only has a few restaurants and this seems to be the main one. When you get off the boat, turn sharp left and follow the cobbled road. The restaurant is on the left side.

The food is good but expensive and a tourist menu seems to exist as well as a menu for the locals!! However, good location, good service and good food. Great views across the lake and open until late evening. Popular so be early!

Owner is a local fisherman.

Locanda does, indeed, set by the lake. As with many Island restaurants, it is glass enclosed to provide a lake view. Locanda is owned and operated by a family of active fishermen, and is recognized by Slow Food, at least for its oil preserved sardines. The day we had lunch there, the menu was unremarkable. The house made salumi were not exceptional, and the spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce was workman-like. The fish soup was a solid presentation, but not out of the ordinary. Decent wine list and service.
