The food was good, but we were a little surprised by the service. At first, they forgot to bring out my wife's dinner -- (this may have been a communication issue?). Some of the items in the meals weren't served at the correct times (some appetizers not brought out before the main dishes, etc.). We were eating at tables in... More

I agree this is a great place if you are looking for a less fancy, more quiet Italian restaurant. This is definitely one of the better restaurants we went to while in Italy. Pizza is very thin crust and fresh. A lot of locals (Italian speakers) brought their kids here to eat. The lake fish cold plate was surprisingly good,... More

Once the waiter figured out that we weren't ordering a full four course dinner, he didn't spend much time with us. The food was good but not outstanding.

Whilst in Stresa for 3 nights we decided to eat at a different restaurant every night. This one was very good with excellent Pizza but also a very good menu of Pasta and meat dishes. Staff were very friendly and a very relaxed atmosphere.

Enjoying pizza whilst having a glass or 2 of red wine just round the corner from the town square, sounds a good idea on a nice evening. The 'Lonely Planet' guide gives this little restaurant a good review. We only wanted an easy meal for a change, but the pizza (tomato, cheese, ham, olives & artichokes) we order was very... More

While in Stresa I decided to celebrate by going 'off' my two-year gluten free health plan for one meal and having pizza. Enjoying a glass of vino in the town square, I decided to ask my waiter where he thought the best place was to have a great slice. He replied instantly, "Osterioa degli Amici!" After making sure his family... More

We found this gem in the heart of the walking area of Stresa. The food was excellent. Service friendly. A little pricey however.

We ventured into Degli Amici while decided on where to dine. The menu had enough diversity and the outdoor seating with the grapevines added an inviting touch. Service was friendly and prompt. Their seafood salad and octopus salads are very fresh. I truly enjoyed their trofie pasta with zucchini in a saffron sauce.
