Unfortunately, by the time I got home, I cannot remember everything we ate, but according to my journal, the food was very good, and service fabulous. Noted that we would eat there anytime if we came back and would recommend it to others.

Dinner with eight. Excellent meals and service. Nice modern venue and a good range of foods to choose from. All meals were well presented and were appetising. Pork medallions on potato purée was quite nice but was a smallish meal for a male and would require some side dish. Would eat here again

Tucked away in a backstreet, this place is worth seeking out! Friendly and knowledgeable staff, good service, nice ambiance, interesting menu and a good range selection of wines. Went twice in the week I spent in Stresa - everything was delicious. My partner raved about their take on tiramisu - made with beer!! Highly recommend you book to avoid disappointment,... More

What a find... In a side street off main square and after reading review on Tripadvisor we tried it. Only sorry we hadn't gone before but would definitely return next time in Stresa! Great service and fantastic food and wine.

This is a real find, away from the tourist trap restaurants, a small intimate restaurant with very friendly helpful staff, homemade ravioli stuffed with delicious ingredients one of the starters, excellent mains and mouth watering desserts. First rate selection of wines too. We loved it so much we returned. My favourite the homemade ravioli, I have never tasted anything like... More

After a busy day in Locarno came back to Stresa late and tried to find a place to eat and I chose it from trip advisor list. We weren't very hungry so we had vegetable soup and small starter eggplant with ricotto cheese and wine . We paid 35 Euro. The restaurant seemed very busy (thats a good sign) .... More
