We ordered trout. We received a small filet of fish they described as salmon. It wasn't! 10 minutes later (after reminders) my veg arrived. 10 minutes later again (after several reminders and complaints) my chips arrived. I only ate the food because I was hungry and we had no time to find a proper restaurant before returning to the relative... More

We had lunch at this lovely island and received good service and had a nice table looking over Lake Maggiore. The pizza and pasta sage Ravioli was Ok but we have had much better. The white wine was expensive and the Chardonnay we wanted was out of stock. Nice atmosphere but overall not one of the highlights of our restaurant... More

A great find on the island of Isola Bella .... turn right just after leaving the ferry. A lovely restaurant on several floors with a delightful open terrace at the top overlooking the market and lake. Good for lunch, lots of delicious homemade pasta dishes at very reasonable prices.

The food had no interest. When the check arrived, we discovered that the waiter added some dishes that we thought were included in the price. Moreover, they tried to make us pay more than what was indicated on the menu. Avoid absolutely this place!

15 euros for a tiny piece of frozen fish without anything else on the plate. Very rude waiters. Much better restaurants further from the por.

Between five of us we ordered a range of dishes - fish, veal and pasta. All were poor. Probably most concerning is just how quickly they all came out. They must have been pre-prepared and sitting under warming lights as we literally got them within 5 minutes of ordering. The pasts was probably the pick of the bunch, but maybe... More

The starters plate of fish is just sea food(from the jar or can) and the second dish is just fried ugly pieces of all kind of fish with no taste at all.

We stopped to have lunch here while touring the Borromean islands. We were not disappointed. We were seated outside on the patio, which allowed the kids to play out in the small piazza. The boys had the mixed pasta plate, which was delicious, and included ricotta stuffed ravioli in cream sauce, penne in red sauce with salmon, and another spaghetti-like... More

Had dinner here while I was at stresa. Need to take a boat ride from the main land to reach the restaurant which is located at the isola Bella island. The experience of taking a boat ride to an island for dinner is romantic, much more if you know the history of the island. The restaurant is a bit old... More
