We arrived at 6 pm, and they would not give us a meny before 7pm. Terrible service, we were 11 people, included 3 children. We asked for plain spagetti for the children, but they answered in an unpleassent way that they only served pizza that night (we were not informed about this before 7:05 pm) after 75 min. We had...

We were staying at La Bussola and this place was just opposite so we took advantage of a short step across the road on a rainy night in Orta. We had pizza which was OK. Perfectly edible but not outstanding. Good value for money though as two pizzas and a bottle of wine were just less than €30.

We needed a family friendly restaurant, i.e. not too fancy, reasonably casual. Just near the entrance to the towns parking garage is just the deal - did I mention that they have a little kids playground? They are also situated just on the right spot to have a great view of the lake and island in front of San Giulio.... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local person and exceeded our expectations. The place was full of italian diners. The service was imeccable. I had chosen the pork and my husband the veal and both dishes were succulent and perfectly seasoned. The chocolate souffle and creme brulee were superb.

Just arrived and had to find the family something to eat quickly. Il Pozzo fitted the bill. It was no the best meal we had that week in Orta but neither was it the most expensive. The pizzas were good but not as good as those to be found in the old town centre. The advantage was that you can... More

Turned up and really enjoyed the potato-themed set menu; really great value and some imaginative cooking. Hats off to the Anglo-Italian barman who had huge energy and really created an enjoyable atmosphere in the place. Not haute-cuisine but tasty and well prepared.

We've been coming here for years. Il Pozzo is located in Orta San Giulio and has a great terrace overlooking Isola San Giulio. The restaurant/pizzeria is simple, but the food is outstanding. I,ve probably eaten at over 150 pizzerias and this is one of the best. Try the "centro sportivo"izza with bufala mozzeralla, fresh tomato and oregano .... deliziosa!
