Nice place!

Excellent small restaurant. It's quite crowded and unfortunately no outside seating, but the food is great and typical for what to expect in Italy. And the hostess is the absolute star of the place!

Have the wild boar or the mixed fresh lake fish. Staff very friendly. Food absolutely delicious. Perhaps make a reservation because it got really busy really quick when it opened at 6.30pm in the evening.

We had a wonderful dinner there in May. There are so many touristy restaurants and so many little streets to wander, it is easy to settle for a place to eat. We passed this charming ristorante on their night off; made note of it and returned the next night - our last in Stresa. We were very glad we returned.... More

We came across this restaurant while walking through Stresa. I'd seen it listed in guidebooks, so I wondered if it would be overrun by travelers and therefore have lower food quality, but I should not have worried. Our group included four adults and one toddler. The staff was exceptionally welcoming. We were fortunate that our child was okay during the... More

We didn't book for the evening... But no big deal, Mathilde greets my girlfriend and me with a little (2) drinks while we wait. In a nutshell, amazing local food, good prices, friendly staff, it's a very nice little gem in stresa. Highly recommended for a nice evening!

Visited for lunch, one word, fantastic! The antipasti platter to start of meats, hams and cheese was excellent. Our mains inc the blue cheese and pear risotto were exception. Really can't fault it and will visit again. Good value.

We first came across this restaurant about 6 years ago and found it to be excellent. It was run by a characterful chap who certainly knew how to cook. We returned a few years later and it was just the same - excellent. On a visit in July this year, we were disappointed to see that it had changed hands,... More

Highly recommended, Great ambience, amazing food, very nice and fun friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit. The texture of the gnocchi with venison was superb, Mozzarella with spec are amazing too. But I do regret to Order the burger, not because it was bad nor it was specially. Just because that I believe there are so many order dishes I... More

We found this little restaurant on TripAdvisor and it was awesome! We had stakes, great meat and awesome sidedishes. Go for the Wild mushrooms, very good! Awesome service from the great staff and really a nice place you need to visit when in Stresa!
