Went to this busy restaurant few years ago but this time it was not as good. Same nice and colourful owner, efficient staff, but it is getting too busy for its own good. Even the glass of spumante offered as a gesture for the waiting time outside did not make up for the quality of the food. The fish was... More

We booked for 7pm when restaurant opened, another table who were waiting for friends were asked to leave at 10 past 7 when the missing couple hadn't turned up. Couples put on a table for 4 were left somewhat surprised when total strangers were sat with them in order to maximise covers. If you don't mind eating under pressure knowing... More

This is exactly how I imagined Italian dining to be a small quirky place, with fantastic traditional Italian food which was good value for money and friendly staff - a lovely touch was the head chef coming out to check we were all ok. Just be prepared to wait for a table as very popular and very small however whilst... More

Lets say one thing, you will never have tried anything like this before. Well I hadn`t!! The first time I tried to get a table ( approx 20.00), I was told to come back after 40 min and one would be ready. After a couple of drinks we returned to wait another 20 mins and still no sign of a... More

We had lunch here with 4 people - we passed by and were attracted by the exterior as well as the interior and when we checked Tripadvisor we saw it was on number 12 so we did not hesitate and sat down. The staff was friendly, fast and correct; we did not have to wait long between courses. We took... More

Hidden away in the back streets of Stresa is this fab little restaurant. The menu was very traditional Italian. Service up front very friendly , efficient . I had Italian sausages on beans I want more! My wife Sue had Cappacio of beef with a cheese truffle fondue and Wow she has not stopped talking about it. Going back again... More

We came here twice for lunch - just off the main front with friendly staff (also spoke English), good menu, very clean kitchen (visible) and very good meals. Would recommend - good prices too. Crab risotto and fried fish fillets were great.

I have had very little cause to write bad reviews for restaurants as I try to pick good ones. La Botte had good reviews and so we tried it and unfortunately, it was a terrible experience. We had an 8pm reservation, so in essence the 'the second sitting" of the evening. The service started out very well but an hour... More
