Only place we ate on Pescatori so don't now how it compares to the rest of the Island. I was pleased though, good service, good food and an ideal place for a long lunch. My main concern about eating on Pescatori was that it's a small tourist trap, but i needn't have been worried. We sat on the balcony above... More

Ate here 3 times during holiday on Lago Maggiore. Very busy restaurant but service was always good. Waiters very helpful patiently describing the menus in detail. Food was lovely, good portions and very tasty. Lot of locals eat here, so can't understand previous negative comments. No complaints from me. Make a reservation to ensure you get a table!

Spent the afternoon with a friend from home who is studying in Florence and came to Stresa to meet us. With 3 bottles of wine and a fabulous meal, we did a lot of catching up!

There is actually a ramp that goes out over the water. The staff works so hard to get everyone served quickly. Our waitress showed us a few platters we had questions about. On the main street and easy to find.

My husband and I were traveling with friends and staying on Isola Pescatori for a couple of nights and read the previous reviews on Trattoria Imbarcadero so we decides to give it a try. The food was excellent and a great value. What was most impressive was the service. We had never seen a wait staff work so,hard, going up... More

We had lunch here after visiting the two larger islands and were looking for something chilled and laid back. One of the busiest places on the island and it is always good to see locals eating there. Service a bit slow to start but once ordered, food came quickly, was fresh, tasty and simple. Would recommend if looking for a... More

I am not sure how this place can be rated so highly. On the positive side the prices are reasonable and if you can manage to get a table outside the views are great. Unfortunately the service is terrible, the staff is incredibly rude and inefficient and you can spend a long time waiting at your table just to get... More

Stopped by for a very quick late afternoon lunch on this island between the other two larger one with villas. 50 minutes between ferries. Pick this one because close to ferry. Great find. Spaghetti with pomodoro and spaghetti with vongole. Salad. Basic food but very good. Good house wine. Nice staff. Enjoyed our food and made our ferry. Thanks.

We enjoyed eating here very much, the service was not so good though because even though it was not complete full, the waitress kept saying it's full. Only the big table was available and I assume that she didn't want only us two sitting there. We waited 30 min walking around the island and came back around 1:30pm and it... More
