We stayed just across from La Fonte and it became our restaurant of choice.

The staff are great. Despite not being great English speakers they were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble (and they were great with our teenagers).

For four of us, a two course dinner, including a bottle of wine and coffee would come to around €100. A great selection of pizzas averaging around €10.

Some great seafood and lake food, along with several meat dishes. Not a huge selection of pasta for fussy kids but pizza sufficed! Particularly enjoyed the seafood linguine and my husband had a selection of barbecued meats on a skewer which he had twice it was so good.

Homemade puddings were definitely worth a try and I think we worked our way through the menu by the time we left. Tiramasu had my vote.

If you eat outside wherever you sit you will get the most beautiful view of the lake. As sunshine turns to dusk, the lake is magically transformed into something from a fairy story. Take the camera!

We didn't make a reservation all week and despite there being several large parties, we were always accommodated outside. Popular with the locals which is always a good sign.

Positively impressed from this place, it offers beautiful lake views and both high qualities food and service. The staff is professional and attentive, much accomodating with all requests. The menu ranges from lake food or seafood to well known local dishes and the quality standard is quite high. I started with an excellent mixed fried seafood, then continued with a great lake fish risotto, very delicate and tasty. Dessert was also gorgeous, I had tiramisú ( and what a generous portion! ) then I was full for the day. It's been a good experience, I would definitely come back to this restaurant to try some more dishes. I also strongly recommend the tables in the external deck overlooking the lake, the views are fabulous!

All seats are perfect for viewing the lake and dining well. We had a wonderful group of 10 from Italy and the USA, so the food , drink and conversation were perfect !

This restaurant has it all wrapped up. Great food, great service and great view. It is a little crazy to get there on the narrow winding roads but that actually adds to the fun...This restaurant should not be missed.
