This small restaurant, tucked away from Stresa's main plaza we had been warned was busy and that a reservation would be necessary for a Sat eve. This proved the case and having secured our table we witnessed many potential diners turned away. The simple decor gave no clue as to the treats in store. The staff were friendly and helpful... More

We ate at Il Vicoletto three times during our one week stay in Stresa and enjoyed every meal. The staff are delightful, the cooking very good, the choice of wine pretty extensive and overall excellent value for money but it is small and tucked away (follow the signs from the main piazza). Despite being tricky to find, it was packed... More

With excellent food and friendly service, it's no wonder that Il Vicoletto is frequented as much by locals as by tourists "in the know". A reservation is a must, and don't worry about the back alley location. This restaurant is a find, well worth it.

My wife and I were taken here to celebrate my birthday. What a delicious present it was too, not only excellent company but excellent food. My scallops were cooked to perfection and my starter of anchovies and peppers whet my appetite beautifully. We'll definitely be going here again on our next visit to Stresa.

We have now been to this restaurant on 3 different holidays to this resort this year and it has the best asparagus and egg dish ever. My hubby had rabbit with fois gras which he thoroughly enjoyed. All the dishes on offer are delicious and the local wine is wonderful. Staff are very, very at tentative and always serve with... More

One of the best restaurants in Stresa. Great food, wine, waiters and a generally relaxing atmosphere.

This small restaurant was recommended to us and we were not disappointed, it is an absolute delight. The menu was varied and interesting, while the wine list included good, reasonably priced wines. I won't go through all the items we ate, except to say that my salt cod ravioli was spectacular, and all in our party felt the same about... More

We booked a table at this restaurant for a Saturday evening and we are glad we did as many people had to be turned away. The street frontage of the restaurant being limited does not offer much clue as to what it offers. However once inside you discover that this restaurant is focussed on providing a good dining experience. The... More

Great reasonably priced meal in stresa. It is about hundred metres pass the main piaza. Look for the sign. You will need to book or get there before 7pm.

This great restaurant is perhaps slightly hidden away so need to look for it. Also seemed to be busy most nights that we walked past it so possibly need to book. Can eat outside but only small terrace opening onto street. Good ravioli
