Easy, comfortable, tasty.

During our stay, we ate dinner at Due Santi twice! One night, we sat outdoors, enjoyed wine and a tasty dinner--spaghetti vongole, onion soup, insalata mista. And some great people watching. The second dinner was on a rainy evening, so we sat indoors. Dinner was just as good. Service is very good... read more

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch overlooking Lago Orta while enjoying great seafood and pasta dishes with our group of 6. The wine list had several affordable choices. Our server Alina was most helpful with English to Italian translation. The service was well timed thru out our meal and spot on. A great place to revisit over and over again.

Some of the food was good and some was not. The tuna, in particular was decidedly unpleasant! Service was mediocre and starchy. Not good value. Didn't go back.

Sitting outside overlooking the lake, this is an idyllic place for dinner. Lovely people serving on the tables, very good food and some top wine in a reserve gewürztraminer at a good price. The seafood salad is first class and the main courses of fish in foil and veal osso bucco delicious. A magical dinner.

We had dinner here twice. They are very nice and helpful people. For example, we like to share dishes--no problem. Shared excellent warm seafood salad both nights--calamari is especially good, as is the langoustine. (Discussed how the calamari was prepared--the chef was very helpful, so we will improve our own cooking.) First night we were having a very good nebbiolo... More

Beautiful views of Lake Orta from the terrace. The food was excellent. The herb raviolli was the best we had in Italy. The fresh perch with sage was also excellent. Nice wine selections. And two great waitresses. We liked this so much we kept coming back every evening for dinner.

This restaurant is right in the heart of the piazza in Orta San Giulio. The atmosphere is elegant, well appointed, and casual - you feel right at home. The menu consists of local, fresh foods presented in a traditional way. The risotto was full of flavor and cooked perfectly. The seafood was fresh and delicate with the fresh pasta. What... More

Ate dinner there with friends whilst on honeymoon. Fantastic waiter. Excellent menu. The quality of the food was excellent, wine was good too. Cost was very good too. The view was amazing, with the view of the island. Highly recommended. Can't wait to go back next year...

Good food and wine for a decent price on a great location facing Isola San Giulio. Service was also good (and in English, if you need that...)

We just had one dish each and a desert and some red wine. Everything in order. Pleasant service. Pleasant atmosphere. In front of the Isola right in the central square.
