My husband and I dined here in early June after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. The front desk of our hotel made reservations for us. We ate inside because it was quite warm outside. The wait staff were all very pleasant, efficient and made great recommendations for our entrees and wine. Pricing was appropriate for the quality of food. Would definitely... More

Located at the back of the town centre this is a proper restaurant in contrast to the many pizzerias and other eateries in Stresa. There are about 6/7 dishes in each section of the menu Antipasti/Starter/Main/Dessert and each dish that our group of 6 tried was well thought out and nicely presented. It is also no more expensive than most... More

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.

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.
