This restaurant is part of the Olina Hotel. Do not over order! You will receive 3 additional sub-courses during the course of the meal, all of the quality to the main fare Service, wine advice, all excellent. The dining upstairs has a great 'old world' San Giulio feel.

We ate here to celebrate our wedding anniversary while in the area, a local shop owner recommended this tiny restaurant and we are so grateful he did. We may have bypassed this tiny restaurant with the kitsch seven dwarf theme but do not let this put you off. Behind the Disney dwarves lies a fabulous chef & team producing really... More

You are given a 10% welcome discount. The food was spectacular but if ordering meat and don't like it bloody, make sure to tell them. Can't fault the staff at all. Can't miss the restaurant when walking by as it is all white and exceptionally clean.

We were hoping for good local food, but this restaurant far exceeded our expectations. It provided one of our best dining experiences on our trip to northern italy.The food was delicious, and high quality. The menu provided... More

We are here three times during our stay in Orta San Guilio and all meals were very enjoyable. They post a menu of the day with new items everyday so our meals didn't lack for variety. The staff was so welcoming and friendly. They also provided very good service whether the restaurant was full or not so full. You are... More

We chose this restaurant as it had received good reviews and had a good write up in Lonely Planet, we were researching a good restaurant to take a small group. Neither my husband or I enjoyed our meals and service was sporadic. Part of the problem seemed to be the overly trendy menu which didn't really explain what things were.... More
