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.

Horrible service with a very unpleasant boss, talking to clients as if they were just dumb tourists with money to spend.

For over a decade the two brothers Paolo and Alberto have graced Orta with their exquisite cuisine and excellent wine cellar, always at the forefront in quality, freshness and variety. I couldn't recommend the restaurant any more warm-heartedly, as after all I've been going there for a decade along with many friends and sincerely can't remember a time I didn't... More
