Beautiful location looking out to Lake Orta

Simply stopped here following the boat trip to the monastery. It was less busy than other places but I think they were busy due to everyone escaping the rain thirty minutes earlier and wanting to seek shelter. By the time we reach this place the sun was out and we took a table on the square. There... read more

We were wandering around town on a day trip from Lake Maggiore. We bumped into a couple of people we know from back home who were staying on Lake Orta. They recommended this place to us. We are really glad that they did as this was one of the nicest lunches we have ever had. The ravioli alla borragi was... More

We enjoyed the ravioli with basil sauce tremendously. Fresh bread with olive oil, great iced tea, nice scenery. It was a beautiful sunny day to sit outside under their covered patio. We left happy.

We have come here quite often, as this is in my opinion one of the best restaurants in the piazza area of Orta San Giulio. Great views and ambiance - sit outside on a nice day and there is nothing better. Service is always excellent and the food in the past has been quite good. This time I must say... More

We stopped here as it was one of the only places open on a Sunday. We ordered and had to wait over an hour for our food! it's not like we ordered anything complicated some pasta and osso bucco. When it finally arrived it was nice, but everyone was so upset about the wait it was no longer enjoyable. All... More

Lots of restaurants on the beautiful square at Orta san Giulio overlooking the lake. This is a little more up-market and a little pricier than some of the others, but then there's an interesting menu and the food is very good. We've often spent time in Orta and don't usually eat here - just when we want something a bit... More

Three of us had dinner here and we were all satisfied. I had Dory fish. My partner had Rack of Lamb and our daughter had Ravioli. The ladies also had desserts which were good. We had a table at the front right on the square and looking out onto the lake and the island. The service was pleasant and efficient.

We had a table outside, and the atmosphere is great, just in front of San Giulio island. We asked for a dish which was not in the menu and we were satisfied, and it was excellent as well. The cost is reasonable for the location and the quality. I would recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I ate here yesterday. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the owner especially speaks excellent English. My wife had a red chicory ravioli (very nice indeed) followed by a delicious roast pork fillet, and I had squid-ink coloured pasta with seafood (ok) and excellent ossobucco. We shared a panna cotta for afters, which was excellent. All... More
