Beautiful views

Ensure you get a table on the covered terrace looking out towards Stresa to get the best views. Service very friendly. Food very good. Restaurant sent a boat to collect us from our hotel.

I attended as part of a large group (20+ people). Wine: The wine was pre-ordered. The prosecco was average, the white wine was very good. The red wine (a 2014 Dolcetto d'Alba) was undrinkable and hardly any was consumed by the group. Appetizers: Small deep fried fish (whitebait) - these were cold, chewy and not pleasant to eat. 1st Course:... More

Second visit to Casabella and even better this time. Welcomed a shore (from the free water taxi from our mainland hotel) by our waiter. Seated on the balcony with a lovely view of the lake. We tried every course and could not fault any of them. The flavours were delicious and the service was excellent. The recommended wine was also... More

Great meal in a great setting. The flavors they put together at this restaurant on the Isola dei Pescatore were just wonderful. And I found it to be fairly priced for the quality. Dinner was served on the top floor looking out over the water and the shore on the other side of the lake—very beautiful as the sun went... More

Was there for dinner the third week of August, We took the public boat service to get to Pescatori Island, and the restaurant has its own boat to drop off the guests back to Stresa. The place is a small old house and the dining area is on the second floor terrace. The views were spectacular, the service was very... More

Octopus Starter - nearly made me cry it was so good Clam Risotto - best risotto we've ever eaten Dining was on a rooftop terrace - truly spectacular! Eating here felt like a privilege and should have had a star. Service was well intentioned helpful, if a little clumsy but not enough to detract from a fantastic evening.

We tried 3 different restaurants on our trip on Pescatori and this was the best food. Excellent cannelloni starter and beef main course. They have a fantastic cheese called. Eborinato de Capra which is so good we had 3 portions of it! The restaurant verbano has a better terrace / view, but this one has the best food. Good value... More

We had a very enjoyable evening at Casabella starting with the boat collecting us from just out front of our hotel. We were greeted by staff at the boat and immediately given complimentary proseca and a complimentary starter. We had breathtaking views across the lake. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. At the end of the evening we were... More

Very friendly welcoming with a glass of prosecco and a small appetizer. We ordered the Soave (€18) and can recommend it. The risotto with clams (€16) is very very good. We ate tournodos of lamb which was not bad at all (but I prefer it a bit more red/rare). And their taxi-boat service is terrific (picked us up at the... More

A very romantic spot to eat, Casabella is located a short boat ride from downtown Stresa. Views of the dramatic shoreline are wonderful around sunset. The food was good but not exceptional. Service the evening we were there was only average.
