MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Welcome to the less formal, more approachable, all-day extension of Tony Mantuano’s grande-dame Spiaggia, located just next door. The setting of this café is relaxed yet stylish; and dining here is a great way to enjoy unforgettable lakeside views for a fraction of the cost as its namesake. Expect a casual menu of simple lunchtime bites and sandwiches that gives way to a more composed yet still appetizing offering at dinner. But regardless of when you visit, house-made pastas are sure to be a particular highlight, especially those short tubes of lumache bathed with a rich and rustic lamb ragù. Don't miss out on generous portions of their fun and creative desserts, like pizzelle cookies sandwiching toasted milk gelato with chocolate-hazelnut crunch.
