This is a very nice restaurant at the end of the Island We went there for lunch at had a Lasagne. This was one of the best I ever eaten. Friendly and polite staff. Outsite, it was very crowdy, they also have a very nice and large veranda inside with plenty of space. If you visit the Island and want... More

The location of this restaurant, as almost all restaurants on the "Isola dei Pescatori" is excellent. However, the location being a given, we were a bit disappointed by the food. All is eatable, but you probably won't remember it for the quality of the dishes. Next time we'll try somewhere else.

This is the first restaurant you come to after the landing stage so as it was raining we dashed straight in. We were quickly seated by the large window from which we watched the squalls chase each other across the lake. The menu was mainly fish based but with some interesting choices. We both had a mixed fish platter which... More

I have been to this place with my family and when we were leaving all of us shared the same idea of coming back the second time! All meals were delicious. For the starters, we had an antipasto di mare with fishes from the lake and we had a seafood salad. As second dish, we had grilled sea bass and... More

The restaurant is located on an island called Isola Pescatori in Lake Maggiore. Therefore, they came to pick us up with a boat. We sat at a table with a view of the lake. The service was good and the food arrived quickly. The dishes were tasty but very expensive. Overall it was a nice experience. We enjoyed

I have to admit we may not have eaten here if other places had been open - on a Wednesday night it seems options are limited on Isola Pescatori. And it would have been a shame to have missed out because it really was very, very good. Four of us for dinner - one tortellini, a Parma pear and rocket... More

I was in this place for lunch in a crowded sunny Sunday. we found a nice table outside in the patio with a super view of the lake. Staff was friendly and efficient. Food was good quality: Ravioli filled with trout and herbs mix and a great risotto with lake fish. Mix of deep fried lake fishes was also very... More

I went to the Italia for lunch. I have food intolerances -gluten & lactose -. Usually finding a place for lunch is an expedition in itself. After going to one place & upon inquiring about provision for intolerances being met with a shrug and 'Insalta', I found myself at the Italia. The very pleasant lady who looked after me assured...

Lovely service, really great quality fresh food. Not overly complicated but perfect for our children and the hot summer days. The pancakes in a bechamel sauce are particularly noteworthy!! In the evening, the gentleman watering the extensive grounds would cool off our kids with the sprinkler which was very sweet! Charming place!

We stumbled across here whilst on a boat tour. We had a nice lunch (caprese, mixed salad, ravioli etc) I asked for the mixed fish anti-pasti for my main meal which was not a problem (and it was delicious!). Nice place for a spot of lunch and reasonably priced.
