“Excellent tourist menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We did not stay at this hotel as we were on a package tour (B&B basis) but were delighted to find the Fiorentino for our evening meals - only wish we'd found it on Day 1 rather than Day 4! Each evening we had the tourist menu which was excellent value, good variety and of an excellent standard. The portions were very generous and delicious. The service was good. Do not be put off if you see few people in the main restaurant - there is a garden restaurant behind and that is usually where most people sit. For us, it was definitely the best place to eat in Stresa if you require good value and good freshly cooked meals.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

This is a charming family run hotel restaurant in the heart of Stresa, a few steps away from the central piazza and Lake Maggiore. It has free convenent parking in the back of the hotel but most rooms from the hotel would not have a view of the city nor the lake. The room and bath are very basic but the restaurant serves great full course dinner which was well prepared. It is a nice value but nothing glamorous. It is also a 5 minute walk to the ferry that goes around the lake.

This was a pleasant restaurant. The owner was very helpful in giving us advice on trains etc., and was very attentive during our meal. If you have a starter then share it - they are huge, but very good. The wine lacked something though - it tasted very unalcoholic!!

By far the best restaurant in Stresa and must rate among the best of reasonably priced restaurants in Italy. We have spent a number of holidays in Stresa over the past 25 to 30 years and have found that, at the Fiorentino, the superb standard of the cuisine and the warmth and friendliness of the owners and staff has never varied. It has certainly enhanced the enjoyment of our visits to Italy -- and the tourist menu is superb value for money.

I found the hotel staff very unfriendly especially the owners. The rooms were small and very basic. Very expensive considering we were told what time we had to be back in the hotel by at night. Not how I want to enjoy my holiday.

I have stayed at the Fiorentino 4 times over the last 8 years and highly recommend
it. The food is good, and the rooms are modern and are a reasonable cost.

It is family operated, and Sharla is the hostess - she speaks English/American and her husband and son are the chefs. You won't meet nicer people. The restaurant has
fixed price meals or you can order off their menu. I usually have the fixed price meals
because after I tried them I was surprised at the qualtiy and amount that is served.

We ordered mushroom pasta at one meal and it was the best I have ever had. I
offered to observe in the kitchen but didn't get the opportunity!!! Maybe next time!

In the morning the buffet breakfast is amazing in the range of items and the quality
One day it rained and Sharla offered all of us umbrella's - which I thought was a nice thing.
