Crotto dei Platani Restaurant

The Restaurant Crotto dei Platani, completely framed by nature, is rustic and yet elegant, strongly linked to his history and to the Lake tradition. A magical location characterized by its romantic atmosphere, thanks to the rock it was born from, the Lake and the centuries-old Plane trees in the garden.
The Crotto is a cellar obtained from rock, and it is particularly suitable for maturing cheese and cold cuts, as well as aging wines. This property comes from a singular and mysterious draft coming from the mountains, called Sorèl, which keeps a constant temperature of 8°C during the whole year.
Restaurant guests can lunch or dinner on the veranda, suitable for all seasons, from where you can admire the Lake thanks to the wide glass window. During warmer spring days and during the summer period, you can choose to lunch or dine in the enchanting garden adjacent to the Lake, a delightful terrace perfect for a romantic and reserved dinner, or under the moonlight on the small dockyard.
