This was my second time eating here and they didn't disappoint again. The food is tasty, freshly prepared and seasonal. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Our expectations were high having read all the good reviews and we were disappointed. The service was fast but borderline rude. Most of the food was uninspired. The spaghetti was a bit spicy, the small Safran ravioli bland and the rabbit had little taste. All these dishes did not have the homemade feel we love so much when we travel... More

We were a family of 7 with 2 grandparents, two parents, and 3 children. We found a quiet place in the shade and had a leisurely meal at La Tavernetta. The staff were friendly and helped us make good choices for all. We were served an appetiser to clear our palette before the meal. Then we had what we ordered,... More

We live in Switzerland where the price tag for eating out is not for the faint of heart. We often take the boat to Intra to shop at the Saturday market. We came across this restaurant while roaming around town looking for a lunch stop and thought the 16 EURO price tag for a 3-course prix-fixe menu was too good... More

Great food and wine in a traditional Italian restaurant with both indoor and outdoor (covered) seating available. The food and service were both impeccable and didn't break the bank! The warm pistachio tart was a particular highlight and I can highly recommend it.

Good service and good food; something on the menu for everybody. Not cheap but certainly not expensive and, hence, reasonable value for money.

Another recommendation from the hotel that we were very grateful for. You only have to step a few streets away from the main drag, lovely local food, nice people and local people eating. All in all another great eating experience
