Unbelievable terrace with breathtaking view. I believe that if you are seated in any part of the terrace you will enjoy your food even more because of nature that surrounds you. View itself would have been enough for me, but food did that extra kick for me. Typically Italian and delicious. I had home made Ravioli stuffed with char on... More

Good food but really was overpriced. Good service and beautiful views over the lake. Not sure. Would go there again because of the price.

Impromptu lunch was a delightful experience in this upmarket beautiful setting. Spotlessly clean, good service and a delicious light lunch. Dinner in the evening will be on our next trip! Thank you.

We had a room overlooking the lake (not all are) above the restaurant on the terrace. Our room was on the 3rd floor - no elevator but we didn't mind it. If there's one criticism about our room is the smell of the essential oil - vanilla - bit too strong. There's a standing fan in the room in case... More

We were taken here by friends who live nearby for lunch on a warm summer's day. Our table was outside on the edge of the lakeside with fabulous views. The food was excellent and service good too. I think having a local in our group helped prioritise how we were received and an excellent experience it was.

Eat on the terrace with a view of Isola Bella close by. Watch the boats buzzing around landing tourists whist enjoying a well cooked meal with slight twists. We go for a special occasion as it is more expensive than other places on the island but the terrace is shady and has space to relax. Just check your bill as... More

A very warm welcome from Philipe, Margherita, Claudia. The food is amazing , good size portions, very tasty , well presented and the service from all the restaurant staff... More

The staff at the Verbano barely acknowledge you as a couple and completely ignore you when you don't order wine. Really obnoxious staff, overpriced pre cooked food, just a very unpleasant atmosphere. Though if you arrive in a big group the staff can not do enough. All about the tip if you ask me

From the private little boat that picks you up on the shores of Stresa, to the front-row view of isola Bella at sundown, this lake jewel couldn't be more romantic. Even though it is a hotel restaurant, don't be fooled. They've managed to keep it intimate and peaceful. The food is delicious and menu combination is inspiring. Everything is served... More
