Very good food - definitely better than other Italian restaurants in Stresa

The food is of a high quality - proper Italian food from a very good menu - quality not quantity, and the ambience is nice. The wine list is also very good. Whilst the menu is very good, the descriptions are not too elaborative, therefore best to ask for a full description of what some dishes... read more

Very friendly and welcoming, efficient service, quickly brought drinks and food was OK, but could not quite appreciate why ranked No 1 in Stresa. Tables very close, cafe style, probably would not bother to return again, nothing to really say against it just a bit of a let down

We headed for a dinner. But didnt get it since it was fully booked. What a shame.... It made me more craving for its dish. Unfortunately we need to go back home tomorrow at noon. Not sure if i ever gonna have a chance to eat in.

This is absolutely one of the best meals we have ever had. This is definately a Michelin-starred quality. Fair prices.

We ate here last year and it was the best meal of the holiday. With another visit to Stresa this was first on our list to visit. The place is tucked away. It is recommended to book rather than just turn up. We had another fantastic time here. The staff are great. The pasta dishes we had as starters and... More

A relaxed atmosphere in a smart restaurant, with a team of friendly females, makes for a very enjoyable meal. My starter of gazpacho with burrata was standout, followed by an exceptional dish of pasta filled with scallops in a cheese sauce. The wine list was the least expensive of my stay in Stresa, with lots of choice. Sadly dessert as... More

As mentioned in other reviews, we found through trip advisor 3 lovely friendly restaurants. Was friendly, relaxed and tucked away from the main town center, where most of the restaurants offer pretty much everything, where as this had a smaller but still good selection on its menu. The scallops wrapped in pasta was amazing! The restaurant is small and we... More

I went there fearing the restaurant will depend on the good reviews and start to let go but it lived up to the standard and was good as the reviews said nice food and calm atmosphere Only if you plan to eat late specially in weekends reserve a table it is busy and it is worth it
