Don't stay here! This is a real expensive restaurant with lovely food. By all means eat here, but don't waste your money on a room. The outdoor terrace is used for food service. You can expect lively noise and chatter until midnight on nights that the restaurant is busy. Impossible to get to sleep. If you pay 150 or 200... More

Be warned that Verbano is no hotel. It appears from upon arrival that the restaurant is the main priority for the hotel. The staff ignore you and are really noisy shouting and smashing bottles til 01.00 and starting again at 06.30. The Verbano charge you 5 star prices for 2 star service. The only thing good about verbs no is... More

I'd find it very hard to conceive that anybody could find an overnight at The Hotel Verbano not to be a special privilege. To be sure, a professional hotel reviewer will find fault with the hotel - it has its blemishes - but when you've got it, you can get away with things that others may trip over. The Hotel... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Stresa and the surrounding islands on Maggiore at the quiet start of the spring/summer season. We arrived by rail in Stresa in the early evening in a downpour of rain and made the trip from the station down to the ferry where we got the last ferry across to the island and... More

After a very hot walk-about we were anxious to find a nice shady spot for lunch. The homemade pasta was delicious and satisfying. Great views, good value, and the resident pheasant was an added bonus. Nice spot to enjoy a meal as you're waiting for the ferry.

We discovered this restaurant whilst wandering around Isola Pescatore and instantly decided we would book for dinner. The taxi boat arrived promptly and was very clean and comfortable dropping us a few steps from the restaurant. It was a lovely warm evening and dinner was on the terrace where we were allocated a front row table looking onto Isola Bella... More

While looking for somewhere to lunch on the island, we stopped by this place because it looked nice and reputable. The best thing about this restaurant is definitely the location and the view. However, the food was dissapointing. We ordered fish (branzino & rombo) and it was absolutely insipid! That was something we weren't happy to pay 60 EUR for... More

Irritated by the 25 minute delay in the promised boat pickup but this is Italy and decides it goes with the territory. Made up by great views from the boat and restaurant itself. Pretentious maitre d who pulled faces when we didn't order a four course meal and expensive bottle of wine - mate, I wanted a meal not be... More
