We had the lamb and the beef strips. In general, they were not bad, but we definitely expected more, given the past reviews. The atmosphere is nice, the staff is friendly.

For starter I was offered a special of the day that was pasta with sausage and cabbage. Delicious. The mains were good and homemade puddings delightful. Worth the short walk out of town.

'La Locanda sul Lago' was born in 1930 as a barn and municipal mill. After this, it was the first restaurant in Santo Stefano, lovingly managed since the '70s by Lina, also known as' Pentolina', who together with his brother and his friend began to Cook and manage the locale. Later, in 2006, it was restored and part of the building was intended for the hotel rooms. Spacious rooms, features and most of all overlook wonderful views. The restaurant is surrounded by windows overlooking the Santo Stefano di Sessanio pond as well as the wonderful peaks that surround us and above all the colorful cultivated fields of our territory. It offers dishes always linked to the territory, local produce and tradition, memory dishes that come to the heart with their scents and flavors, but are always supported by the authenticity of raw materials. Thanks to the Chef Simone Iezzi, to the care and warmth of his wife Francesca, thanks to all the staff you will be involved in a new and familiar experience, where quality and professionalism are always present, while veiled by the warmth of home
