Could be better

Amazing place...average hospitality. The welcoming was extremely poor even rude. Once we got to the table instead service improved a lot. Food was on the average level however the view on the lake was incredible. This is the only restaurant on the island

The only restaurant on the island, right on the lake, food was unbelievably good, we tried several dishes, from the soup to the desserts. Waiting staff was cordial and attentive, overall I highly recommend it

Beautiful restaurant on superb place with real delicate Italian foods, and with a pleasant service. In daytime and the sight speaks for itself in the evening.

Warm and friendly service in a stunning location on Lake Orta. Good menu choice with helpful staff to advise further. Beautiful town to stroll around before or after the restaurant experience.

We chose to have lunch here (on a Friday and there weren't many diners) for a special occasion and were very pleased with everything from food to service. Terrace dining right next to the lake as the weather and season permitted it - very relaxing atmosphere. What I really appreciated about this place is that the menu is up on... More

This is the only restaurant on the island and has a nice terrace by the lake. The service is very slow, go there during mid low season period.

I recently visited friends that live in Lago Orta, Italy. We wanted to treat them to a nice lunch for their hospitality and they recommended Ritorante San Giulio on the island just off Orta S. Giulio. What a great and pleasant surprise. After a short, 5 min boat ride, out to the island we were taken to a very charming... More
