We ate at Verbano during our visit to the island. The location of the restaurant is nice, food is good but frankly overpriced in terms of food quality and portion

The Hotel Verbano on the Isola Pescatori is in Lake Maggiore. You take a boat out to the island, there are no cars allowed. The Verbano overlooks the Isola Bella and the palace. Ask for a room with a view. The restaurant in the hotel is lovely and rather modern. The food was delicious and the staff was wonderful. Beautiful... More

Went here based on TA reviews. Glad we did for a delicious lunch. Upscale restaurant at south end of this little island with great views across Lake Maggiore towards Verbenia. Starter of puff pastry filled with gargonzola cheese and pears on a bed of prosciutto. Followed by risotto with lake perch in cream sauce and grilled large shrimp in cream... More

We booked this restaurant for lunch time the service was very good and the food also. Location is fantasic and the restaurant is very big! The only quarm I have is that it was a bit pricey, there are just as good if not better restuarants much cheaper. You pay for the location of course!

The water taxi ride is a none too shabby way to start the evening. You land at a private jetty and walk 50 yes to be greeted by the maitre' d. You're shown to a table overlooking the lake lit by little starlight lanterns. The sommelier brings you each a glass of prosecco. The setting, food and wine were second... More

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
