Amazing view, great pastas and grills

What a find! We were staying nearby and couldn't be bothered to walk into town to join the tourist crush. Strolled down to the waterside and found this great little cafe/bar, full of locals, all knowingly chowing down on a small but quality menu of pastas, grills and salads. Everything we ate over... read more

We returned after 6 years to one of our favorite restaurants and were again blown away by the amazing views from the restaurant. The restaurant sits on the lake front at Carciano and due to the fact that its in Carciano rather than Stresa is much quieter than restaurants within Stresa. However you would struggle to get a better view,... More

Go here for drinks and enjoy the view to the Islands and the lake in general. Don't go here to eat. The food is at best mediocre. But the view makes this place worth a visit!

We came here one evening and had a good meal. Came back two days later (different chef in the kitchen) and it was just so-so. Major plus : from the terrace you can enjoy the best possible view on the islands.

We visited for a meal in mid afternoon, I was wearing a Rolling Stones t-shirt and was greeted by the man behind the bar also wearing a Stones t-shirt.. We laughed about the co-incidence! We were seated at a table a fantastic view of the lake. The service was friendly and attentive. Suddenly the music stopped and was replaced with... More

Booked a table for two at this place for dinner on a Saturday. Better to start the experience from the beginning and my 12 steps to dining hell at this place! 1. Entered the restaurant 2. Spent ten minutes waiting standing up without even being noticed. 3. Finally seated 4. Noticing immediately not enough staff - two waiters for the... More

The restaurant is located on the lake with great views of the islands.The food was very good (except the potato dumplings). Steak, salads and light snacks delicious. The waitstaff were pleasant and patient (for folks like us who don't speak Italian). We ate there three times and each time had a great experience.

I love this restaurant/bar. It is not only extremely friendly and has a great menu, but also has the most amazing views of the Borromean Islands. From the lakeside terrace you can relax with a cold drink and enjoy the sound of the water beneath you, whilst enjoying the views. I have been to the Lake on many occasions and... More
