Description: The restaurant, with its fine indoor and outdoor terraces directly overlooking the lake, is known for its regional and creative cuisine, its well-stocked cellar with over 450 labels and the friendly professional courtesy of the young well qualified staff. In summer the gazebo and tables outside, cleverly decorated with flowers and candles make for a cosy romantic atmosphere, special moments where style and taste are a byword. Our philosophy is to be found in our quest for the finest raw materials, their transformation with absolute respect for its essence and integrity, following the finest of Piedmontese traditions while introducing at the same time our characteristic creativity.

The room is run by a lady who will make sure you really enjoy the food and wine, which is exceptionally good. The lake can be seen from all tables and there is a terrace for fine days. Try their Beef Carpaccio (Heaven) . There are comfortable easy chairs and sofas in a covered area for coffee and you have... More

Third time we have been here and as always it was fantastic, the a la carte menu has a great choice, one of our party was a vegetarian and was more than happy with the options. Everyone else was spoilt for choice, my steak was done to perfection (medium rare) and the smaller children ate from the lunch menu (pasta/home... More

Usually we avoid eating at hotel restaurants. This is however, an elegant restaurant, very conveniently located in the hotel, with a nice view of the lake. Staff is excellent!! Wine list great, too. Food was often average, lacking in taste, and not up to what you find at good Italian restaurants - but maybe that is the case with all... More

Out of 6 courses 3 were poor. Over priced which is a pity as the service was good and the setting wonderful. We started in the hotel and only ate here once.

After 2 weeks of Chateau & Relais experiences in Southern France, we ended up at beautiful Lago Orta in the northern area of Piedmont where we discovered this gem. It offers a beautiful outdoor lakefront terrace setting, excellent service, food prepared in the highest quality with very reasonable prices. We ended up going back FOUR times over a six day... More

Stunning lakeside restaurant with attentive staff and great food. Would have 5 stars but mu girlfriends prawns were very undercooked. Not sure if it was intentional.
