Delicious meals!

The small restaurant is very cozy! The staff is really helpful, nice and fast! Excellent the "Filetto di Vitello con Gorgonzola" and the "Spiedino di speck e scamorza"! Good red wine and desserts. Good quality/price ratio!

Found it by chance while walking the streets of Stresa, Italy (Lake Maggiore). The food was great, the staff very friendly and helpful and most of them were related by birth or marriage. The portions were large and prepared to perfection.

It's hard to get great food in a tourist town. I had the beef Milanese, a crumbed minute steak, came with chips and I had a green salad. It was ok. Nothing special, but given I'm in Italy by a lake, I wanted something special. The meal was big, so I didn't finish it. I must also point out Stresa... More

After a long day doing the Maggiore Express we needed somewhere not too far from our hotel for dinner. La Botte filled the bill. We walked I without a booking anf snagged the lady table for two, realised that most of the other tables of four are people just sitting together, not a group of four. Very effervescent owner, husband... More

We had three really good meals in this family owned restaurant and each time we were very pleased with the welcoming service, quality of the food, and menu selection including wines. An excellent choice for authentic Italian food. We recommend booking a table as the restaurant is small and very popular.

This small restaurant is a must to have lunch or dinner. As there were 6 of us travelling, we phoned and booked a reservation. Highly recommended, as it is small. Our table was ready for us when we arrived, although, throughout the evening, several others who were waiting to get in, waited outside - but - to make it all... More

We had dinner here last night. If it wasn't for the owner/waiter's rather unfriendly-to-the-point-of-being-rude attitude I'd have rated it 5 stars. It is a rather small intimate restaurant just off the main piazza. It was empty when we arrived just after 19h00 but soon filled up and there were people waiting for tables when we left. We had the gnocchi... More
