Tony's On The Lake

Pasta & More With Appetizers Galore

A wonderful rustic Italian dining establishment that has a view of Lake Coeur d'Alene in North Idaho that will long be remembered. It's accessible by car or boat, but the boat mooring is limited. It's tucked away on the East side of the lake in Bennet's Bay.

The restaurant has that warm cozy feeling of intimacy often found in those quiet and quaint cafes of Tuscany. Their love of cooking shows in all the D'Allessandro family prepares & serves.
You may choose to dine indoors or enjoy the lovely weather in the summer, outside on the patio.

We often tell our guests to order an Appetizer not on the menu but available, with a little persuasion, as an appetizer, the fabulous Gnocchi. These little potato dumplings are made in house, and have the most wonderful Gorgonzola cream sauce served with cherry tomatoes. You will also find the Caprese salad a delightful way to start out your dining. La Pasta is the best, especially the Manacotti al Mare (house made and stuffed with Shrimp, Crab and Lobster and topped with a White Clam Sauce). If you have room left, you may want to share II Secondi and select from unique entrees. A favorite with many is the Gamberoni e Fagioli (Grilled Jumbo Tiger Shrimp served with Cannellini Beans cooked in Garlic and Rosemary).
Don't be afraid to take your children, you will find a treasure trove of toys and books in a small alcove available to entertain them.
