We ate here in mid-October, and could not figure out why the restaurant was so empty. It has a nice atmosphere and serves far more than just pizza. Do not think of this as an American-style pizza restaurant, though they do have a pizza oven and are happy to serve you pizza. Service was friendly and... read more

We ate here twice in the same day it was so good! The wood-fired pizza oven produced some of the best pizza we've had in Italy. And that's saying a lot! The ambiance is good and the value for money excellent. Good location and very friendly service. Looking forward to our next trip!

My husband is Italian, and whenever we visit Stresa at least once a year, we always come to this family-run restaurant that has been around for many years. The dishes we have tried are always consistently delicious, whether pasta or pizza, but my all-time favourite dish is their tagliolini con nero di seppia (black ink pasta with prawns and a... More

Very good food and service in this restaurant with a terrace away from the busy tourist places. The menu has many dishes but we kept to the basics and ordered from the huge choice of pizza. The real thing! and good prices.

Because the food was pretty good (excellent pasta and the best pizza we had in Stresa, by far) and the prices very reasonable, we decided to overlook the abrupt service we received and give them another chance. We got the same waiter and she recognized us as return customers, but she treated us so coldly that we felt our business... More

Stressa has a lot of up market and frankly pretentious restaurants so it was good to find this pleasant local place and we ended up eating there twice. When we returned the second time the waitress recognized as and was really pleased we came back - it was kind of nice that the waitress identified with the place. Everyone was... More

We ended up there after being refused by a posh restaurant, because it was... too late, at 1 : 15 pm... Moving on. We then walked in the neigboorhood, and there it was, La Rosa dei Venti. We went in, and we felt... in Italy. A lovely lady welcomed us, and indeed took care of my family from the first... More

We ate lunch here after doing the boat tour on the lake. We liked the location and the menu looked appealing. We were surprised at the low prices compared to the portion sizes. Pizza in particular is an excellent value. The food was delicious and the staff were prompt and courteous. We did feel a bit rushed because they were... More
