PIZZA and primi best.....

Best view of all places. I have visited it many times although not the best place to eat. For a greta sunset, order a starter and a pizza with a glass of wine or Beer and you are in heaven. Stay away from mains and desserts. If you do this a magical evening with striking views and the food... read more

Due to 2 rounds of visitors we have been to this restaurant twice in as many weeks. The reason is that its simply offers a range of fine dining or even pizza while being right on the lake edge. If you have not been to Orta yet then you are in for a fine surprise. The pizzas were biscuit they... More

Nice food, nice wine, friendly waitresses. The tiramisu dessert was disappointing though. We would go again for the view.. Would recommend.

I went here with my family and the place is really really good, first you have two choice: pizza or restaurant. We went to the restaurant side and we had an amazing view of the lake, which you have just in part from the pizza side, then we had the full menù and it was extremely good, there is not... More

Visited Ristorante Venus with a wedding party of 25 people. The staff were very friendly and efficient, the food was great and both food and drinks including cocktails were very reasonably priced. The views from the back of the restaurant over the lake are fantastic!

Are here as a last night meal for all our family after a wedding. Shabby and sad. You can see what they are trying to do but it's executed very poorly. The food we managed to obtain after a lengthy wait was crap to be polite, tastless and over cooked. I had to return my lamb after a 50 minute... More

We were recommend by the La Palma hotel and were not disappointed. The terrace is really nice, with a great view The food was extremely flavoured and with very nice presentations. We would have loved to have a friendlier waiter...but nobody's perfect REALLY worth a try!

We went twice to this nice restaurant, the staff was so friendly, tutti va bene! They take your order very quickly, patiently wait and explain. We didn't try the pizza but had salads, delicious! Loved the pea soup with really small fish (perch) fillet that was perfectly cooked! The burrata was really good, same for gnocchi, pasta bianco, raviolis. They... More

Location and views are unbeatable.Pizza was great, salad was generous on the cheese and the ham. I cannot speak for the cooked meals other than pizza as we stayed on the safe side, naturally suspicious of the food in such a great location. Would go back again and again.

Just back from orta and we were here a few times for food as well as holding wedding welcome drinks here after our ceremony at Villa Bossi. Pizzas and meals in general are well priced. Around or sometimes under 10euros. I had a lovely cheese ravioli..Stunning flavour. (Maybe would have liked a little bigger portion though) We were a big... More
