We dropped in later during the evening on a weekday and had a great bottle of local wine and some local food. It was a delicious experience. You are welcomed with some salami and bread as an appetizer, yummy. The waiters did not speak English that well, so ordering was a bit tricky as we do not speak Italian. We... More

Excellent, excellent food. Nebbiolo wine from the house was amazing. Waiter was friendly and attentive. When we went there was a big Italian family birthday party, so it looks like a favourite with the locals which is a good sign. Worth going back to Verbania just for this restaurant.

Intra has been quite a revelation on our trip. Bustling, friendly and full of choice. Of our four nights here though we chose to eat twice at Osteria del Castello and would probably have come every night if we had found it sooner! Tucked away in a little piazza behind our hotel it is an authentic gem. Draped in ivy... More

As the owners of the award winning " La Casa del Giardiniere"Bed and Breakfast near Stresa, we always make a point of taking special visitors to Osteria del Castello. I love the place at lunch time in particular for it's simplistic charm, a very special atmosphere, with an equally uncomplicated menu. The secret is in the ingredients, which are just... More

This establishment is owned by a well known local and has a long list of regulars who dine there. As the owner is a wine buff you will find a large array to choose from. On the two occasions my husband and I have eaten here we were not that impressed by the quality of food for the price charged.... More

so nice when you hear no other english besides your own voice. This is a local place. Had some wonderful thin steak strips on "rocket". Perfectly placed screening plants in the outdoor dining area. Its been here awhile and I expect it will be here for a long time!

My husband an I spent two wonderful evenings at this truly fabulous restaurant, a popular favourite of locals. On both occasions I had steak, flavour and tenderness amazing. Also the recommended local wine was enjoyed sitting in the jasmine surrounded dining terrace-bliss!

Great value for money! Simple and classic Italian dishes, brought to you with love. Very nice staff. Although the waitress did not speak English, she did her utmost best to help and assist. We had a great evening. This is as Italian as it can get! A "must-visit" when in town...

Nestled in a small square of Verbania-Intra, this place represents a nice surprise for the traveller. It is clearly a place that also hosts locals, which implicitly means that the quality is good and so is the price, otherwise people would not come back ! You share the table, unless you are a party of 4 or more people, but... More

Took the ferry across from Laveno, Osteria del Castello was the perfect please for a slow lazy lunch. Food delicious, something to suit all in our party of six. The place is small and the shelves stacked with bottles of red wine. Service helpful, not at rushed.
