Great prices

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... read more

Reliably good Italian food. We enjoyed a risotto special, insalata mista, good wine. All very good. Service is good.

Located on the main piazza in the town, and sitting directly on the lake ensures that you have great views regardless of the table that you sit at. We had a dinner on a Friday night (a larger group of 9) and it was simply a wonderful evening, creating some great memories. We sat on the waterfront side, yet we... More

I've taken to Trip advisor unusually quickly after visiting somewhere. I had to double check exactly what country I am in after being served with the worst pizza I've ever had. It was soggy and wet in the middle. What is unforgivable is the use of tinned vegetables eg mushrooms and green pepper. The salad we ordered was bland and... More

A great location and well shaded. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Food was brought to table quickly and portion size good. I thought ham and cheese pizza average compared to others I have had in area, Parma ham with rocket pizza was excellent. Chocolate ice cream pudding was huge and very tasty. Lost a star due to average ham... More

This restaurant in the main square has absolutely breathtaking views of the lake. I asked the waitress if they served Prosecco by the glass and she laughed and said "OF COURSE!". I had a pizza which was nice and my husband had rabbit risotto. The food was good but the setting was better.

Lovely food served with a smile. Decent prices. Don't forget the €2 per person tax. The only toilets are upstairs.

Wow what a setting, on the edge of lake Orta with a view across to the island. Outside seating with big umbrellas for shade. Food was good, nice pizzas and salads. BUT unless you order from the main more expensive menu they won't let you sit in the main seats and put you at the back (even if the restaurant... More

The obvious thing about this restaurant is the view of Lake Orta, which is pretty spectacular, especially by night. The food was very nice. I tried pizza there, as well as a ravioli, both of which were very good. The menu is pretty big, with enough options for a family of three vegetarians to all have different main courses, although...

This restaurant is right on the lake and main square and we booked a lakeside table. It would be hard to imagine a nicer vista for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant has a wide range of food from pizza, which looked excellent, to fine dining which was nicely presented with well thought out menus and ingredients that complemented each other...
