“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We were given a complimentary aperatif and starter and they didn't even know it was my husband's birthday!
Food was beautifully cooked and presented.
Rather quiet when we went in so the service was rather too attentive!

“casa cibo fantastico cotto!! Fantastic home cooked food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Like sitting in someones home and them treating you like an old friend...thats how I can best describe my visit.

Our Italian friends recommended what we had and I asked them not to tell me what they had ordered as it would be a surprise when it arrived!

I had a starter of local ham with apple fritters....devine!

I then had a spicy tagatelli with seafood and this was beautiful and very filling....to my horrror a meat course then arrived. It was a suckling pig in a mustard sauce the like of which I had never had...it was perfect and I ate it all as it was so good.

The local wine was recommended and it was so smooth and tasty.

I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly.

Grazie per un pasto delizioso!

“A real find in a touristy town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The town on Lake Orta is cute but you do not expect to find a restaurant serving a high-quality and creative cuisine. Many of the dishes we ordered literally blew us away. Prices are reasonable and service is family-like, very friendly. Would love a little place like this near home.

“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Greeted with an unexpected cocktail and unexpected treats with the bill. Everything about this meal was very good. What was really excellent was the service by a young woman, the well spoken head waitress and the efficient and kind waiter. The three of them took care of us professionally and pleasantly. they made the good meal, great. We saw two of them at a different establishment serving breakfast twice. they were just as good there. Our best meal in Orta San Giulio.

“good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

very good restaurant, attentive staff and good menu choices all reasonably priced, visited only once because of its popularity, so booking is essential in the busy periods
