I visited La Botte last night, having eaten there a couple of years ago on a previous holiday. It really is a lovely place. As we and several other diners waited outside for our tables, the chef brought out delicious meats, cheeses and wine for us to enjoy. The meal was also very good and the atmosphere very welcoming.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and was pleased with this restaurant. Reasonable prices and good food. Service was good as well. Not the best restaurant in Stresa but I would say it is one of the better ones.

I've read the reviews on this trattoria, not ristorante, and for the most part they are good and then there are those that point out the negatives. One thing everyone apparently agrees is the place is always packed. And, the locals eat there, so La Botte must be doing something right. MY wife and I have eaten there 3 times... More

We got the last table on a Saturday lunchtime and the choice on the menu was very tempting. We tried a variety of dishes from various courses and it all got a bit confused as they arrived at apparently random times in random order. They did apologise for that - we'd confused them by ordering from odd bits of the... More

We were lucky to obtain a table at this very cosy restaurant on a Monday night. The restaurant opens at seven and is well worth lining up for. We enjoyed an excellent meal which included wild boar and gnocchi beyond compare. The service was friendly and efficient. Thanks

Based on our hotel's advice we chose to dine at La Botte our second evening in town. We did pass by the night before and were glad we had made reservations. It was very busy and if you had no reservation you would have had a long wait. It is not a very large place, but can accommodate fairly sizable... More

This is a quaint, intimate restaurant in the heart of Stresa so popular that you have to book in advance or you won't get a table. You are welcomed warmly by the Owner on arrival. Once seated menus and the wine list are presented - an excellent selection awaits you. We had a delicious house wine. Our meal was excellent... More

We booked a table during the day for 7.30 that evening to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The booking was entered into their book and I could confirm the time because I had to write my surname against it. We duly turned up at 7.30 only to find no tables available and on investigating our booking found it had been... More

My wife and I booked to eat here and thank goodness we did. It was 8.30 in the evening and there was a queue of people lined up outside like fans at a Justin Beaver concert trying to get in! The restaurant is by no means large but this adds intimacy to it as well as ensuring you are looked... More
