Very nice food and good atmosphere

Good service, good food (not too fancy), good ambience. Reasonable prices. Would go back. Did not expect too much but very pleasantly surprised.

Every time we visit Stresa we eat at this restaurant. It is always busy but Mathilde always tries to fit everybody in. Best to book. The food is excellent and the food is served with a smile. We will be back!!!!

After half dozen visits to Stresa, La Botte continues to be our go-to restaurant. In 3 days, we had dinner there 2 nites. It has changed owners, but the food is still wonderful. Now, the hostess/owner, welcomes you with a Prosecco. Then bread and the menu. The meat and cheese antipasto and lamb are our favorites. We've never been disappointed.

Our main intention was to find a restaurant in Stresa that opened before 7:00 pm for dinner. The only one was La Botte., the menu in the window looked OK, so we went in. What a wonderful surprise! The restaurant is charming, the waitstaff extremely helpful (and in English too!). They answered all our questions and made suggestions. We followed... More

Our B & B host recommended this restaurant and we are so glad we went. We arrived early and were seated by the window. I had the Gorgonzola Risotto with pear because I was intrigued by the combination. It was incredible and as stated in another review was blissful with each bite.

We came upon this restaurant unexpectedly for a late lunch - they were the only place we could find open. We didn't have high hopes as the decor is a bit dark and uninspiring. I ordered the gnocchi with boar ragu and my husband had Gorgonzola Risotto. We had a signature "Italian experience" - the experience where you take a... More

We dined here a number of times while we were staying in Stresa and would have gone more if they hadn't been packed out every night. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was comfortable and homely and the food was fantastic. Among the food we ate was a starter of mixed cured meats and antipasti, local fish,... More

Ten minute wait for a table on a weekday evening. A bit cramped inside with the tables close together. Good food (especially the schnitzel!) and friendly staff.

Visited this restaurant twice for dinner during our stay in Stresa. It is a bit of a comedy show gaining a table. You are asked to wait outside, even when you have booked, for about 5 or 10 minutes whilst they find you a seat. Glasses of Prosecco are ferried to all who go through this drill. We got a... More
