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. A thoroughly... More

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
