Beautiful setting next to the lake overlooking the island. Food was really nice and setting great. I had lamb and lemon mash cooked to perfection.

My husband and I have dined here many times, but not recently. However, I still dream about one of the appetizer's I have had here: goat cheese trio, one of which was covered in chocolate. That is the mark of a great restaurant - to serve something memorable which someone still dreams about 3 years later. To add to the... More

Service was excellent. We later saw our servers in the town and they remembered us. Their pizza is awesome. So are their salads. We had lunch there twice. I would have liked to try their upstairs dining room for dinner an a great view of the island. Life and vacations are too short.

This restaurant is perfectly situated on the lake shore in the centre of town. The menu is local and fairly extensive. You can sit and watch the world go by with a chilled glass or two!

This was our first meal in Orta San Giulio and we were lucky enough to get a table for two right by the lake side. We were tired from travelling and just fancied something simple so opted for a pizza with side salad to share along with a chilled glass of prosecco - refreshing, fresh, tasty and surprisingly good value...

Stopped off here on the way back from a business meeting. The village itself was very picturesque and we walked down to the harbour. We just had time for a snack because my flight was due. The staff didn't seem overly pleased with the fact that we were not having a full meal. We we also not allowed to sit... More

Only had coffees and croissants at Venus but the service and drinks were great. Lovely place to sit, next to the water's edge and watch the boats travelling to and from the island.

Gigantic salads. Pizzas good. Service prompt and overall a good choice for a casual dinner outside by the lake. Average is a little unfair but very good is probably overstated too.
