The reception staff at our hotel in Stresa recommended this restaurant as very special and they were right. They rang to make the reservation and the restaurant sent a car to collect us. Although not the cheapest compared to some of the Stresa restaurants, the menu is imaginative, uses fresh local ingredients and changes regularly according to what is in... More

The restaurant is located on the top of Stresa. They offer the transfer from your hotel to the restaurant. This place is really authentic, the owner is really charming. We had a really good time.

We spend a lot of time in Italy and we were very impressed with this restaurant. The owners are the most friendly people imaginable and are genuinely enthusiastic about developing new dishes. Many Italian restaurants are happy to churn out the old standards, but the Vecchio Tram includes dishes which are much more adventurous. When I liked the idea of... More

An exceptional setting and view. Difficult to spot the entry drive on the right going uphill. Huge enthusiasm of the host/ hostess. Lovely presentations. Food quality variable. One of our party became ill after dining there having had a mixed fish appetizer. A possible food handling issue.

We are foodies, but this resto does not deserve all these good ratings. Both of us returned the main courses.
