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!

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

We stayed in Stresa for five nights and had lunch here then made a reservation for dinner another night. When we arrived for dinner we were given complementary glasses of prosecco as our table wasn't quite ready. Both times I had the seafood ravioli with pesto and asparagus, words cannot describe how good this was combined with a starter of... More

Luckily we booked a table as people were having to wait outside for the next table. It is rustic. We were a party of 2 and had to share a table with another couple. It was a bit awkward as they had already ordered and the waiter had to talk loudly over their heads ( the table was against the... More

I'm really not sure why this restaurant is so highly rated. I tried to book a table for 7.30pm for the following night but the waiter advised me this was not possible - only 7.00pm or 8.00pm - but the chef/owner appeared very quickly and advised this was certainly possible. No mention about sharing a table with another couple! While... More

The food was excellent. The only thing better than the food was the hospitality and service. When we got to the restaurant the place was packed and we had to wait for a free table, so the chef bought out wine and some cheeses while we wait. You don't see that every day :)

We passed here a few times and there were always people waiting for tables and while they waited, they were given glasses of wine and cheese. We went one night and the food we had was excellent, it's only small and very cosy but with a great atmosphere and the food was excellent. Well worth waiting to get in.
