It's for romantic couples but while you are sipping great Italian food you can't help yourself from staring at the lake instead of your partner.
the food is good properly mixed and cooked you can find either sea and lake fish but also meat and some pasta dishes suitables for vegetarians. attentive service and right check complete a great dinner

We visited Crotto dei Platani on the recommendation of our rental home host, and were not disappointed.
Excellent food, good wine list, friendly staff, and a beautiful location right on the lake. The local wild boar received particular praise, but all of our plates were delicious.

We had a nice evening in this restaurant. The staff were very pleasant. The food was good, but not spectacular. Be aware there are not lots of parking space! I would book an earlier table to maximise the chances of having a parking slot!

My daughter was celebrating her birthday and wanted nice italian food. I asked a local friend and she recommended this place. It combines fantastic food with amazing views. It is located right on the water. Since it was winter we sat indoors but there's a lovely garden and we plan to return in the spring.
The service was impeccable and the food really tasty and of very high quality. All of my family loved it! I highly recommend it.

My husband and I were staying in Argegno with dear friends, one of whom celebrated a milestone birthday on August 26. We did some research and reserved a table here for the big night. We were seated at a lovely table, down some stairs and away from the main seating area. We were on the water, enjoying the beautiful surroundings before the sun set, then candles were lit to continue the lovely glow. The food was mostly wonderful, especially the pasta with black truffle, and the gelato di noci (walnut gelato) was delicious. What really made it special was the amazing service. The servers were fun, attentive, and generous. Our friend's dessert arrived complete with a birthday candle. The site of this restaurant is very old, with an ancient wine cellar in a separate building across the road--"Crotto" translates to underground cellar, and "Platani" refers to the sycamore trees surrounding the cellar. An absolutely delightful evening.
