A few steps from the lake, close to the funicular, this is a bargain compared to other places we had been. Spaghetti with mixed seafood was 9.5 euros, and (shock) a glass of prosecco was 3. But the food was really good. We ate "outside"...More

We had to find a place restaurants close, so this was closest restaurant with high score. Food was average, nothing so special.

We had the best pasta marinara, seafood paella (see the pile of debris shells!) and veal scallopine we have ever had! So good on the 8th we booked then & there for the next night! The raspberry tiramisu is absolutely delicious!

Nice venue on glasses-in part outside main restaurant; picturesque in the rain. Linguine misto di mare was all lobster—a lot of cracking but good. Paella was basically risotto for rice—very nice and lots of shellfish. Efficient, pleasant service.

Average price of a drink is about 5 euros; pasta about 9 euro. Really nice service. Portions are big enough. They speak english.

The lasagna was excellent, very little heavy sauce and lots of meat and tomatoes. My husband had pasta with vegetables (don't remember the exact name) and was also very good. It's sort of hidden, but did and service were pretty good and at reasonable prices

Eh, I think you need to ask the restaurant about that - I was just a customer!

Not really even from the glass room outside. It’s tucked into the harbour. Nice place though.
