We arrived on a friday evening and I think the owners were not expecting many patrons. As it turned out they were steady all evening. However they did not miss a beat, the service by the owner was very pleasant and the food was top shelf. A very pleasant evening.

Very friendly staff, couldn't have been more helpful and informative. Food was memorable, and we so enjoyed the house specialty of "wild boar"..... Great local wine, and informative host who told us some of the history of his restaurant, and this historic small town. Would dine there again in a heartbeat.

I was attracted to this restaurant when I read that they had a dessert called 'Birramisu'. "This," I said to myself, "I have got to try." I arrived fairly early because, after having spent the day trekking around the Isola Bella, around Stresa tracking down sights, sites and people from 'Buongiorno Italia' and going up to the Umbrella Museum at...

During our short stay in Stresa we stumbled across this small restaurant at the top of the town square. We ate about 8pm and managed to get the last table. The menu was small and modern Italian, the goats cheese starter was outstanding and a main course of guinea fowl was beautiful and tender. Good value for money but get... More

We were very glad to have spotted this restaurant in Stresa which is a couple of minutes away from the really busy centre. The food was all excellent and the prices very reasonable for the quality. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Do try it if you are in Stresa.

Perhaps we were slightly unlucky with this one, but comes across as somewhat boring - compared to the other really good meals we have had in Stresa. We expect more "life" at an Italian restaurant, more vibrant.. Main cources really good, but starters and dolci we would expect more. Duck and Guinea fowl very tasty and tender.

This was a good find in Stresa. Just a little bit away from the main centre is this delightful little restaurant which obviously has a good chef because the food is very well prepared. Some locals eating there which is always a good sign. Menu was limited. No problem as the food was excellent but was the reason we did... More

Food great; nice ambience in a quiet place. Could do with some music in the background and you may need to make a reservation. But it is fabulous!

After deciding we wanted to walk to a restaurant we decided to try Trattoria Due Piccioni based on TA reviews. We were delighted. We started with samples of Lake Fish and a salad. Both were delicious. I had duck confit with marbleized onions for my main dish and my husband had lamb. Both were excellent. Sauces enhanced but didn't overwhelm.... More

Found this restaurant by chance and just loved it. We were happy to see the menu was small compared to the pages of menus in other restaurants in Stresa, waitresses were very friendly and attentive even with a busy restaurant. We had the Chef's homemade pate and seafood to start and lamb chops and ravioli for mains. Desserts were fabulous!... More
