We were recommended Olina by the people we were staying with. It was one of the best meals of our week along trip around Italy. The decor is very stylish, but welcoming. The menu including interesting specials and delicious local versions of traditional dishes. The staff in the restaurant were just great! Friendly (this seemed to apply to families with... More

Olina is a great little restaurant with a seasonal and fresh menu. The menu is generally small but well formed, however this could mean that if you are a fussy eater you won't find something you like. The restaurant itself is well priced and is better value for money than the restaurants on the waterfront. If you visit Orta in... More

We went for lunch based on the special of the day that sounded good as it mentioned curry and we thought it would be a nice change of pace. It was good, not great, but served the purpose for our lunch. If I were here again, we might give it a try again but preferred other places in town.

Enchanting, unusual decor from the bread basket to the winking gnome. Great interesting food with very generous and friendly service albeit in a soft brusque fashion. We went back a 2nd time to make sure we weren't dreaming. A great experience.

This was not our best dinner in San Giulio. Somewhat funky dishes, which not all were too impressive. It was good food, fresh, (more than) generous portions, but just couldn't find anything much to my taste and when we tried anyway it didn't proof any different. Service wasn't at its best either, a bit grumpy this evening.

My Italian friend recommended this place and it was fantastic. It's on a narrow street rather than outside on a square - so it's full of locals rather than being a tourist trap. The service was friendly, the serves generous and my fish - deboned tableside - was awesome! Fresh from the lake. Very distinctive and individual quirky table decor.

We only decided to try this restaurant because of the reviews on Trip Advisor...if we had simply stumbled across it, we may have given it a miss thinking it was more about style over substance and probably too 'trendy' for us...that would have been our loss! While i admit i don't really understand the slightly bizarre decor with garden gnomes,... More
