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!

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!

This great little "Trattoria" is situated down the charming side streets of Stresa, it boasts polite, timely, and attentive service, alongside a fine array of classic and modern Italian dishes. The decor has an eclectic feel to it and the noise from the adjacent ally only adds to the ambience of the place. The food is generally fresh and of... More

We booked a table in advance, we had to wait for a couple of minutes when we arrived (a bit early) and were served a complimentary glass of bubbly , which was very nice. However, people also walked straight in to the tiny restaurant to vacant tables whilst we others waited. This happed also later, I saw a couple just... More

Stop in for a late lunch. Order what you want. You will not be disappointed. Excellent service and delightful pleasant staff. Try a small salad and some pasta. Maybe a cold beer? Have some fun. You can count calories tomorrow. Have dessert at Jolly, only steps away.

Had a very nice dinner here, but unfortunately no outside seating available. Good advice is to make a reservation. Good service too.

This was the best restaurant we visited in Stresa, so good we went back on our last night. Quite small and busy, it is best to book. The food was wonderful. Try the little macaroni with cheese fondue and speck.

We had delicious fried fish from the lake -- so sweet. The staff is very nice and it's reasonably priced.

Kitschy décor in a small restaurant just off the square. Lamb ravioli in a brown sauce (like gravy) and "rustica" salad were fine, but nothing special. Service was efficient, if not overly warm. Generally good value, but this isn't the place to linger and savour gastronomic excellence. Still, it seemed to have a repeat clientele, so that says something.
