My wife and I had a late lunch after a ferry boat ride around the lake. Good basic Italian dishes. Fin to sit outside. Service was professional. Would return.

We ate here in May, during a rainy evening, and ate very well. The specials menu is worth investigating and the Osso Buco is recommended, as is the Torte Torino. The people who work here are friendly and gave us excellent service, with some pidgin Italian on our part. A great experience!

Excellent service, outstanding food and very friendly staff. We were 23 people and they had everything ready for us when we got there. We had 4 tables all close by so we could still talk to each other.

The setting is relaxed and atmospheric. The food was great and portions more than big enough. The staff interact with you from the off set and offer great advise and knowledge on the products they serve. The house wine was a great botttle and the limoncello a lovely touch to finish your meal whatever time of day. We returned here... More

We arrived very early around 7:30 and the restaurant was already full. We got one of last tables outside. You better reserve if you want to arrive later. We had prosciutto and fritto di mare. Both very good. They also brought water for our dog. Services were very efficient despite the many customers

My brother John and I are currently eating our way through the Italian pre-Alpine Lake District. We just left Stresa on Lago Maggiore where we had two superb dinners at Caffé Torino. The restaurant was recommended to us by Beatrice, the proprietor of an excellent wine store (La Cambusa) where we also stocked up on some local wines for evening... More

Over a week in Stresa we tried a number of restaurants (based on Trip Advisor recommendations) and never had a bad meal. Caffe Torino was no exception. Located on the main square in Stresa it has much more of a tourist cafe feel to it than some of the other restaurants in the area: it is fairly large and busy... More

We ate at this restaurant twice as it was so good. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was very tasty and excellent value. Limoncello offered at the end of the meal.
