We dined here on Saturday evening, while visiting the lakes for the weekend. We passed it as we were on the way to where we planned to go and because we were tired and it looked nice, we went in.
As I am allergic to dairy, I asked for a pizza with no cheese. It was absolutely delicious. We both agreed it was the best pizza we had eaten since we were in Sorrento. It was so tasty and light, I didn't even miss the cheese, as is normally the case.
My boyfriend loves Tiramisu he said it was really good, as good as the best he had in Rome!
The staff were lovely and friendly and the prices were reasonable. We look forward to going again when we are in the lakes.

8 of us visited on Saturday 23/6 for a birthday treat.

They don’t take booking but we didn’t have to wait long (in the very nice Lily Bar next door).

Have eaten here many times before and cannot understand why it doesn’t have 5 stars. The staff are absolutely great and the food is blooming delicious.

Look at the menu and get down there ASAP, you won’t be disappointed!

Thanks for a great birthday!

We visited Tarantella early on Sunday evening and opted for the early menu, as usual with early birds the options were limited but for the price we paid the food was excellent, the service was friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit.

This is such a nice restaurant to visit and eat in. The staff are always cheerful, friendly and make you feel very welcome.
Everything we ate was delicious, although I couldn't manage everything as they do serve generous portions. We will be returning on our next visit to Ambleside.

This is mainly Italian food, beautifully, cooked and presented in a nice romantic setting, loved every minute of our time there.
