It was around this time last year that we started searching for our wedding reception venue on Lake Orta and found so much information we found it difficult to decide where.

The food here was good on the whole. We ate here a couple of times and some of the dishes were good and some were exceptional. My Pike with Saffron Sauce was delicious and my wife's tuna were both wonderful. The pear, chocolate and orange tarte was delicious and we were glad that we shared as it was a good... More

We were a group of 8 who had been recommended to try this restaurant. The setting by Lake Orta was magical & we had high expectations. The menu we found was had to choose from as none of us liked the selection offered. The raw prawn appetiser was very unappealing. We had thought that they meant "cold" not "raw !... More

Beautifully located right on Lake Orta, the restaurant is a lovely place for a romantic dinner. My husband had the delicious seafood ravioli, and I had the good (not great) tagliatelle with fish ragu. For our main course, I had the branzino, which was moist and flavorful and delightful. My husband had the fabulous calamari skewers; the calamari was perfectly... More

You could hardly have a better setting for a restaurant, right on the edge of Lake Orta with the island of San Giulio across the water. The food is above average for the lakeside but for really good value for money you need to head inland.

The restaurant was recommended to us and we chose it for our last night in Orta. The food was delicious, hand cooked potato crisps to die for, and we thoroughly enjoyed seabass baked with vegetables! A taxi would be a good plan as the parking is a little tight and the road it is on is unlit, better to enjoy... More
