Fodor's Review

In a town with an overabundance of touristy pizza and pasta places, this unassumingly modern family-run bistro raises the bar. While the shabby-chic decor and friendly service entice, the real draw is the short but smart menu, chock-full of thoughtful and inventive twists on Italian cuisine. Start with the little vegetable cakes with warm local cream cheese followed by a house-made pasta such as ravioli with sheep ricotta, hazelnuts, and lemon or gnocchi with a ragout of fish from the lake, or opt for a heartier main like the duck confit with thyme, honey, and braised onions. Just make sure to leave room for the "birramisù," an unusual and delicious take on tiramisù made with stout beer.
