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

This restaurant was very busy which was a good sign but the service proved to be quite slow. Our time on the island was restricted so we felt a little anxious that we would not be back to our boat in time! However, when our meal arrived it was worth the wait. My husband had a selection of cheeses and... More

We had a great lunch of steak and chips and fish and chips at this restaurant. It was all cooked to perfection. One of the best steaks I've had. To top it all, it was all very reasonable and I would definitely recommend eating here if you are on the island.

This trattoria has a beautiful terrance over looking the lake. The food is not fancy; however, simple is often the best. We love the lavarello (lake fish) or the trout grilled and served with either potato or salad. Reservations recommended during July/August time frame as it fills up fast.

Trattoria Imbarcadero offers a good selection of local quality food. Price is average considering the location right at the water's edge. Our party took four pasta dishes and a meat dish with fries. Cost including 2 bottles of water ... €61... Be careful as the restaurant and many (not all) levy a €2 per head cover charge. Service was lacking... More

Fantastic seafood around E 10 per fish. Go for specials !!!! We had a platter of tiny fried fish and pasta with seafood. Also Aperol Spritz is delicious, not too sweet and little bitter.

We really liked the grilled fresh fish. One of the better restaurants in Stresa. Best to reserve a place - it gets really full
