“Excellent food, location, ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Ate three nights running, best place in town without doubt. Varied menu and extensive wine list. A food & wine buffs delight. Slightly pricier but worth the extra. If you want veg and potatoes you need to ask and they will oblige. Fast service but we were there early season. Very friendly and multilingual. Fantastic view of the island. Highly recommended.

“A superb lunch in a wonderful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We visit Orta san Giulio often and have walked past this restaurant and hotel many times. The restaurant is set on the lakeside with wonderful views and comfortable decor. We were met by a friendly Maitre'd who was attentive and helpful. We enjoyed a plate of roasted vegetables with warm cheese to start, followed by cheese and tomato risotto which was superb. We will definitely visit again.

“Very good food, service and prices with incredible view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We stay at the hotel and ate several lunches and dinners here. The food was very good as was the service. The prices were very reasonable and the view from the terrace tables was spectacular.

“It was OK, had better!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Location is excellent with nice view of the island but the terrace is covered with very dense grape vines which makes it very dark and feels clostophobic. Service is good and choice of food as you would expect. Food was ok, my lamb was cooked perfectly but it was in a crust which was so over powering I had to take off as could not taste the lamb. Both my lamb and my partners pork were served on an over cooked rosti and that was it nothing to accompany. Overall food was ok but would I go back probably not.
