Had an enormous meal here for a romantic birthday - good cooking and enormous portions - coming back next week! Can really recommend - friendly but not oppressive service and the view couldn't be beaten. Best so far in area.

Was a very average experience. The garden area is very run down and needs LTC. Food was nothing spectacular and quite expensive for what we had. Bottles are on window ledges along with burnt out candles which I would have expected moved for the occasion. Service good but a bit too casual. Needs a woman’s touch.!

Been here before and booked to come back in a few days time as every time we have a superb meal, possibly the best in this area!! We were outside little bit breezy but they pulled down clear, wind breaks so the view was still there and it's breathtaking. We had 4 courses and all 4 of us had something... More

On arrival it looked pleasant enough however we were only offered a table outside, I had no jacket and though it was chilly I was not offered anything to assist , the courses were quick and the staff seemed in a rush to get us out, the food was bland and the atmosphere was cold and the staff unfriendly ,...

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant which is in a stunning location right on the lake. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Great food and reasonable price. I would recommend this restaurant if you are staying in Orta.

Great northern Italian food with a view of the lake that makes for a perfect romantic meal. Also, one can find a great local wine at a very modest price. Tables are spaced so that diners are not on top of each other. Parking is scarce due to the restaurant being right on the waters edge so get there either... More

The best dining experience you can get - breathtaking lakeside views, with the tranquility of being slightly outside busy Orta (about 1-2km away). The food and wine was five star - perfectly cooked and presented with imagination, yet without being minimal or overly fussy. We came here for our wedding meal and were dropped off by the boat at a... More

Stunning lakeside view from the terrace, relaxed but efficient service very good menu, great food. Good wine selection, excellent Gavi at 20€, although the view so intoxicating you don't need a lot of wine! The 3 course meal was a 100€ for two but worth it for the location and experience.

After looking on trip adviser we went here and from the road it looks a little run down but when you go to the terrace you can't get better location. Service was attentive but not too much and the food was superb. Worthy of 5 stars and good value for money
