I am originally from a town about 30 minutes away from lake Orta, and now that I am living abroad I try not to miss a chance to visit such a beautiful place. The Ustaria has been recommended by a friend and it has been a fantastic surprise today at lunch. You can either reach it by car, a very... More

We got married in Lago d’Orta in July 2014 and had our reception in Ustaria. It’s an incredible place to have a reception, right on the lake shores. We arrived by boat after all our guests had arrived (also by boat). The aperitif and the 4 course meal was unbelievable. This is the best Italian food you can have in... More

Just know that you're paying for the view... 4 euro/person coperto... the food was so so and mixed in terms of value. We started with a prosciutto and sage dumpling appetizer. More prosciutto than 4 of us could eat! We also shared an eggplant flan that was OK but nothing special. The tomato sauce that came with it tasted like... More

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

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
