Very good service and great menus

We ate several times in the hotel in the evening and all meals were superb. Very attentive and helpful staff. Book early if you want a terrace table in the summer months, we had to eat inside once or twice as we left it too late to specify an outside table.

went to stresa to have lunch, were attracted by low calory dishes. the food was excellent but service.....more waiters than customers but they ignored us when our glasses were empty. we had to pour wine and waterr ourselves, it could be possible in a pizzeria round the corner but not for that bill we got. DISAPPOINTED

We have been here 3 times in the last 3 years. This hotel is wonderful. The concierge is superb. The food delicious. The rooms are old style and filled with antiques. Thus time we gave a large terrace overlooking the lake. Breakfast is a very large buffet which is included in the room rate. Parking is free in a garage.... More

A fantastic restaurant with stunning views. The food was great and the staff very friendly. The wine selection was very good and reasonable. They let us share the appetizers and the pasta course and they were both lovely one was a really very good lobster dish.

We ordered main course and dessert. The wine recommendation was spot on and most reasonable. Veal very good, albeit small portion. My wife wanted fish and ordered tempura - disaster, take it off the menu - but was replaced immediately on remark with the absolutely most amazing pasta. Tiramisu very good ! Stay with the classics !!!!

Let us start with the location. This restaurant belongs to the hotel. The rooms of the restaurant are perfect looking in a barock style. With good luck you can get a table next to the terrace facing the Lago Maggiore. It is necessary to make a reservation. Then you will get guided to your table. Soon you will get the... More
