Very nice dinner

We were looking for a mini market in Stresa and this nice young lady (Alice) helped us - even walked us there. Turns out she was a waitress at this place. So we went there for dinner and she was our server. Nice dinner. She treated us really special. Food was good. Local fish was very good. Egg... read more

This restaurant was a highlight of our visit to Stresa. This time we had a party of 8 and celebrated a wedding anniversary with a couple who has been married for 60 years. The restaurant staff really went over and above to make our event truly special. They even baked a special pastry cake and wrote on it for us.... More

We ate here 3 times during our stay in Stressa as it was very close to our hotel, the food was always very good and the staff were very helpful. The restaurant also had a very relaxing ambience

We used this restaurant for most of our week in Stresa, as we were staying right next door. While well-frequented, it is out of the central part of Stresa and so avoids being too noisy and overcrowded. The inside room is dark but pleasantly spacious, while the little outside deck is surrounded by a rather nice, idiosyncratic vegetable garden in... More

This place on the main drag offers a little of everything. It was easy to get a table and the service was efficient. Nothing is really exceptional, but then, it won't break the budget. Plus, you get to do a little people watching!

Meh, we had lunch on our first day on Lago Maggiore and it was ok. The highlights were the pizzas which are thin with good toppings, four seasons was good and the service which was friendly. The rest was just ok. No more than that, my Melanzane Parmigiana were not good at all, in fact i left most of it... 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

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 attentive. The house wine... 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.
