This unassuming restaurant served up great pizzas (really thin) which were cooked in a proper wood fired oven. Other food was on the menu, but we only had pizza. The tiramissu was nothing to write home about. Don't be put off by it being in the station!

Outside it was unprepossessing, but inside it was an enjoyable experience. Had its own pizza oven, our waitress (Cuban) spoke good English, and it exceeded our expectations. Also good value.

Remember visiting this restaurant when it first opened and enjoying the pizza. A good few years on it doesn't disappoint. After a couple of mediocre meals elsewhere we went here for lunch and had the best pizza of our stay in Italy followed by a "powerful" limoncello on the house. Thank you.

Visited this restaurant in July with my parents, it's situated next to the train station and after a day in Milan we thought we'd try it when we got back to Stresa. We were seated immediately and given menus, after a few minutes were asked if we wanted drinks and we also ordered some pizzas. The food arrived so quickly,... More

The restaurant is situated at the railway station. It has excellent pizzas but also a very good set menu for lunch. The food is good, actually very good for the price. This is a restaurant where local people eat.
