Perfect location, beautiful food and wonderful service

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... read 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

The artichoke flan with a parmesan almond cream sauce by itself merits the five stars I've given this restaurant. What a delicious, creative, mouthwatering appetizer! I was there with a small group of 18 travelers -- disappointed that we were not seated in the open air roof area but ultimately mollified by the superb food and attentive service. Casabella deserves... More

Food was cooked to perfection and was delicious. There seemed to be an emphasis on local, fresh produce which we just loved. The waiter was prompt, efficient and friendly. The view over the lake just seemed to finish off the lovely meal. Unfortunately it was a rainy and miserable day, but the waiter did not push us to move on.... More

How they lost a few ranks in the tripadvisor reviews, we really cannot figure. I believe other restaurants have increased their quality because Casabella's has not declined in the least. Cooking is altogether unpretentious and superb, well ballanced with emphasis on local products. Fish and vegetables are cooked to perfection, wine selection is superb (with excellent advises from the sommelier).... More
