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

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.

We intended to share a starter, but after trying out the asparagus flan, we just could not resist ordering another one. My wife had the osso buco which was excellent and I had the spaghetti with clams, really well done. A bottle of Barbera ensured the evening was a success. Waiters were very attentive and helpful. Would definitely recommend this... More

Set on the main piazza of Orta S.G. this place has good service and good food. The portions were not large which is fine with us. Worth a visit.

We ate dinner at Ai Due Santi. Delicious fresh fish and wonderful service, with great views across the lake and reasonably priced.

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 seemed to be... More
