Well placed within the centre square of Stresa this restaurant beat the others purely because of its great selection on the menu including a vegetarian section (not something that we came across often). The T-bone steak was delicious (I'm not the vegetarian) and the ravioli was delicious too. The waiter was friendly and helpful when guiding our choices and making... More

Since arriving in Stresa we have discovered that eating outside leaves you open to eating in a cloud of cigarette smoke which just would not be allowed in the UK thank goodness. We sat at a table outside and when engulfed by smoke once again we asked to move inside.There was no fuss at all and our evening was transformed.The... More

We had a caprese salad as a starter and then the homemade ravioli and penne arrabiata. As a dessert we had icecream and the chocolate cake. Everything was simply perfect, from the service to the food. The restaurant itself looked clean, the restrooms were also clean. We will definitely go back to this restaurant when in stresa again.

Not for the first time I can speak well of this cafe. Its in the main piazza in a tourist area which often means they are happy to churn out bland food to feed the masses but its not the case at Caffe Torino. A very good lunch with good service.

Friendly helpful staff, tasty food and vegetarian options for me while my friends were very happy with their meat and seafood dishes. As well as their standard menu there were a range of daily specials which also included a vegetarian dish. Good location in the centre of town. Prices were very reasonable for good food and good service. Loved the... More

We wandered around Stresa not able to get a table anywhere. Huge queues everywhere. A tip, try to book as many restaurants as you can. So, we ended up here. The service was good, the atmosphere less so, and the food even less so. Ok food if you just want to stop being hungry.

We tried the Caffe Torino without reading any reviews....and were very glad we did! The food, service and atmosphere where so good we decided to go back 4 out of the 5 nights we stayed in Stresa. We had several dishes from Ossobuco to marinated lake trout, all of which were superb. All the dishes are very reasonably priced, as... More

Cafe Torino is located in a piazza full of out door restaurants. I tried most of them and Torino wins the prize. Their specialty is the pink Lake Trout from Lake Maggiore with capers. All pasta was also excellent. In particular, the eggplant parm contained huge pieces of eggplant smothered in the baked cheese. Lasagna contained more meat than the... More

This restaurant really surprised us. It's located on the main town square of Stresa, and looks like a typical tourist place. However, we trusted the good reviews on TripAdvisor and we were very glad we did. Food and service were excellent! And the prices were very affordable. We had dinner at other restaurants dinner our stay in Stresa, but this... More
