Romantic setting, overlooking the lake

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.

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

My husband and I had our wedding reception here in August 2014. The restaurant is located on the shores of Lake Orta a short distance from Orta San Giulio, it is a little far to walk but it is accessible by car and it also has a jetty so you can arrive by boat. The setting is beautiful and very... More

This is a great, rustic, laid back restaurant in the most beautiful setting on Lake Orta serving fabulous Italian food and great wine. The staff were very professional and seemed to have the balance just right between being friendly and helpful but also leaving you to enjoy your meal without being intrusive. Even a grey and rainy afternoon couldn't dampen... More

Having spent an hour fighting the crowds in Orta San Giulio ( don't go on a Sunday ), it was a relief that trip advisor recommendations had again proved spot on. This is an oasis amongst the teaming throngs in town. Food very good ( we both had fish having spent the last 5 days in Barolo country with not... More

We came following the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The setting, quality of the food and service make for a wonderful overall dining experience. We had lunch on the terrace on a sunny day with a beautiful view of the lake. The staff are friendly and very professional. The choice of dishes was extensive and everything was... More

We had lunch there with friends. The location is simply wonderful; a lakeside terrance with a private landing dock, should you com by boat.... The view is phenomenal and we were lucky to have chosen a sunny day. The food is very good and satisfies even the local palates, also beautifully presented. The staff is courteous and efficient.
