There are a great many pricey but very average restaurants in Stresa - this is not one of them. Good food, imaginatively cooked and presented and matched with a good and reasonably priced wine list. All with excellent service. We ate here twice and particularly enjoyed the lamb shank, probably the best I have ever tasted, and the chocolate millefeuille.... More

A Gem! Be sure to reserve at this slightly out of the way establishment. Try the asparagus pudding for appetizer then order the lamb shank! You won't be disappointed. A glass of Barbera di Asti for 4 Euros!!!

Lovely food, a very busy restaurant where it is advisable to book to avoid being disappointed. The portions are not large so you need to work your way through the menu but good for a special night.

My wife and I started with an antipasti that included salami and ham and it tasted great.Then we both had the lamb shank and it was delicious. They have a good assortment of wines.Prices for everything were very fair, especially with the strength of the dollar vs. the euro... More

We were recommended to this restaurant. First, the food was melt in your mouth delicious. The staff made us feel very comfortable. We'll be back tomorrow night, very atypically, but to sample more of the great menu.

Very friendly service, nice food and we were lucky to get a seat on the terrace. A few steps out of town centre but worth finding- we had a very good meal. Well presented. Very good value for money.

A delightful little restaurant tucked away in a small street towards the back of the main Stresa piazza. It can get busy so we booked the night before - an outside table if the weather was good, inside if it wasn't. The weather was good and we were given a lovely little table in the small outside area. Service was... More
