A meal right on the lak

We were picked up from Stresa and taken to the restaurant on Pescatori island at no extra charge, amazing. Great start of the evening. The food was good, service was friendly and quick. We had a great dinner. And of course the location: terrace is right on the lake, you cannot get any closer.

I don't eat a lot of fish. I was willing to try, here, but then I saw a prosciutto and pear appetizer, the prosciutto smoked with juniper, and was totally intrigued. When I asked for a recommendation for a second dish, the waiter suggested I stick with meat (instead of ordering fish) since I started there and recommended the house... More

We liked everything: the fish, the wine, the service. We relied on staff's recommendation and we are still greatful for that. We disliked the weather: it rained a lot!!!

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.
