Beautiful surroundings and a menu which doesn’t change over time.

There are some reviews complaining about the food and prices. Prices are steep.

Now the vegetables antipasti are very good in my opinion. And so is the trout.

All the other courses you can skip. You don’t miss anything and because realistically I couldn’t eat anything else after the trout. There is simply too much food.

But since the vegetables antipasti are great I like to come back to this place every 2-3 years.

Make a reservation and go! You won't regret it. Once you arrive on the small island, you will be seated (hopefully outside on the veranda) and offered some white wine and a lot of delicious small plates of veggies and ham, especially the roasted onion (seriously!). The roasted chicken may be a bit dry, but you'll enjoy the fresh lemon and other ingredients served with it. The ceremony by the owner, a cute old Italian man, to ward off the island's superstitious history will make you smile and give you an extra reason to enjoy the boozy coffee served to you. You will be sad to leave, but happy to have had the experience!

My wife, myself and another couple enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this delightful restaurant. While expensive, the excellent food, wonderful service and beautiful location made this an afternoon we will remember always.

Yes, this is a tourist trap. Everyone knows that when they book it. They have been doing the same thing with the same menu since 1947. That's what they advertise. The restaurant has extraordinary views from every table. No it was not a gastronomic phenomenon. Here is a place you go for the experience. Food was fine. Staff was fun.
Exceptional, no. But I knew that when we booked it...

The restaurant is on an island and can only be reached by boat. The cost is 75 euros per person. We were seated outside with a fantastic view. They do have a fixed menu which offered about six courses. The vegetables were outstanding but the chicken and fish were just ok. The dessert was vanilla ice cream with orange sauce and was exceptional. The presentation was very enjoyable. The meal ended with a coffee ceremony giving a history of the island. I'm glad I did it but wouldn't do it again.
