Small and intimate restaurant in the beautiful village of Gandria, with lake view. The cuisine is mainly based on seasonal and regional ingredients (km zero) and it draws on different traditions revising them with a pinch of creativity.All the preparations are homemade, including pasta and bread.Free WiFi
