Like most decent restaurants it is advisable to book and fortunately when we did so, we didn't ask to sit outside. Fortunate because on the evening we visited there was a torrential downpour and outside was not the place to be however, if you can be sure that it isn't going to rain then outdoors is a must.

Followed trip advisor recommendations and was not disappointed! Great intimate atmosphere and service, good menu options. Food was excellent we had salmon, rooster roll for starters, lamb with braised onions and scallops in black bean sauce for our mains then finished off with passion fruit and gelato, panda cote and warm chocolate cake. Add water, soft drinks and great bottle... More

Went to this restaurant on Tripadvisor recommendation and was not disappointed. We had the lemon and pepper flavoured linguine vongole and the tagliatelle marinara, both were the best pastas we have ever eaten!!! The service was faultless and even our half-bottle of Valpolicella was decanted and presented beautifully. A must visit for anyone going to Lago Maggiore.

One of the best places we ever eat. Everything is delicious and the prices they charge are like eating at a pizzeria, while it is a Michelin place. Service also excellent, with the owner (woman) in service and the owner (man) in the kitchen.

We thought that this was the best restaurant in Stressa. We dined there twice during our 4 days in Stressa. The meal was so good we decided to come back the next night and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, the service was friendly and professional. The wine list was extensive. You will need reservations.

We had to book here as it is so popular. We can see why it is so popular now after having eaten there. We stayed a week in Stresa and this was definitely the best food we had. Started off with prosecco as usual. Really good. very nice wine too (kept cold in an ice bucket - a rarity on... More

We had two incredible dinners here. The spinach pudding was devine as were the scallops. The service was excellent. However, you must book in advance due to its popularity.

We chose this restaurant on reviews from trip advisor and were not disappointed. The service was wonderful and the food was excellent. You need reservations, many were turned away. We went with the recommendations of our waitress and were glad we did. My only disappointment was dessert. Go have gelato at one of the many gelato parlors around town instead.... More

Went here the first day we arrived in Stresa based on the great reviews. Told the hubby that we probably needed a reservation but we walked right in for lunch. We were the only people in the restaurant for most of the meal. The octopus was good and presented nicely, but it was a fairly small portion. The ravioli was... More
