This is a great little restaurant that offers excellent food, service and good value for money. Missed out first night because it was full and you need to book to secure one of the 12/13 tables, which we did. We shared the homemade pate to start which was great and enough for two. Suckling pig and mixed fish for mains... More

This charming little place was fairly quiet, and the whole front of the house was handled by two charming and efficient women. The food is fantastic. Amazing risotto, fritto misto, in particular. We liked it so well, we went back a second night. And, it was a bargain compared to other menus we saw.

I travel to Italy for the weather and for the food. This year in Stresa the weather was not good. I was 4 days in Stresa before I came across Trattoria Due Piccioni and I had not been overly impressed with the restaurants I had visited. Then I came here . Italian food as it should be. Simple, flavourful and... More

Ate at Trattoria Due Piccioni two nights in a row of our four nights in Stresa. Service was impeccable and the house red delightful. The walnut pasta and risotto were delicious. The balance of flavours a treat. A must to try.

Outstanding experience! Fortunately we reserved. Super service, very nice atmosphere and excellent food at a very reasonable price. Regarding wines we selected the "house white wine" and were not deceived. Woud reccomend that restaurant to everybody.

Visited this restaurant three times during our 10 day stay. Definitely our favourite. Wonderful food, superb and efficient staff, good house wine served in pretty white jugs - lovely. We were allowed to take our time and not hurried in any way, very different from some of the Stresa restaurents.

Stayed a week in Stresa, and ate here twice - I wish we had eaten there more often. Excellent pastas and meat, great service, nice quiet atmosphere, and they welcomed us with a toddler and made a smaller pasta portion gor her. The wine they recommended was excellent! I hope to go back some day soon!

Of the various places we ate during our two days in Stresa, this was my favorite. Could not get in the first night, so we made a reservation for the next. Worth the second try. Suckling pig was delicious, as were the lamb chops my daughter had. Good wines, good service, pleasant atmosphere. Very much enjoyed the place.
