Cozy place with excellent service

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.

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.

We had such a wonderful lunch at Casabella recently. It seemed the restaurant was very crowded when we arrived. It's located right near the dock. When we inquired about a table we were led to an upstairs terrace that we didn't even know existed. We were seated right at the railing with a beautiful view of the water and a... More

The four of us enjoyed our beautiful view of the lake from Casabella. We all had different dishes and all of us were extremely happy. So relaxing.....take time to just soak it in.

After strolling the grounds of Isola Bella, we (a large group) were steered to this fabulous restaurant by our chartered ferry captain, a gregarious and animated type who assured us fresh porcini mushrooms would be on the menu. He called ahead to make a reservation for us on the second floor covered terrace overlooking Stresa - great view. As promised,... More
