excellent food and sommelier

We have been twice over the past month, the food is excellent and the head waiter, one of the owning brothers, is a top sommelier. They have an excellent wine cellar, only 10 to 15 % overpriced I would say. The food is among the best on offer along the lago maggiore, they are kind and friendly and... read more

We returned to Piemontese for Easter lunch yesterday. Two of us had the fixed price lake menu (fish) and another simply the pate and vitello tomato. The Easter menu looked good, but we really like the way they do fish here. The wine was the house wine named after the mother of the proprietors, although this restaurant has one of... More

My wife and I have had lunch several times during our stays in Stresa. We had lunch twice there two weeks ago. Menu is excellent and the service is terrific. The restaurant is family owned, and we have always felt like we were in their home. Cannot go wrong eating here. Will always return.

This is a lovely restaurant near the main piazza. We booked a table, which is probably advisable because it was full in no time. The food was delicious and well presented. The service was professional and unhurried. We will return if we visit Stresa again.

Get a table inside and feel the elegant way of eating in Italy! The owner was very friendly. The food was nicely presented. We had bressaola with goat cheese, gnocci with a sauce of cream and hazelnuts that was delicious and pasta with ragu. Prices were fair.

Picked this restaurant out of a guide book and because it looked very authentic. We were shown to a table in the courtyard at the back - plastic chairs and tables - which bears no resemblance to the smart interior at the front of the restaurant. Service was very slow and the food was a disappointment - cold and pretty... More

This is a lovely restaurant in the center of town. The quality of the food was very good, probably some of the best that we have tasted in the Stresa. The service may be considered slow, but it gave the effect of unhurried ambiance. The serving staff were very pleasant. We had not booked and arrived at 7.30pm; by 8pm... More
