Beautiful old shop
Aug 2020
An amazing shop- typical of old style shops that one finds in the Med- dying breed in the UK.
Full of all kinds of lovely products including nice wine.
Might be a bit pricey but you pay for the service.

Delightful experience

Great wine and especially helpful service! Rosario and her daughter Sara and son Ruben were all very helpful in recommending bottles that we would like. They helped us put a case together to ship home. Good guidance on shipping alcohol separate from wine too!

This is a great wine and liquor store in Stresa. Reuben was very nice and accommodating. He gave our party of 4 an impromptu wine tasting. I must say he was rewarded as we purchased a lot of product including wine, balsamic, truffle butter, olive oil etc. Anyway, I highly recommend La Cambusa.

La Dolce Vita!!! So many wines ....
Oct 2019
We visited in October and had an extensive wine tasting in the wine shop ! Reuben taught us so much about the wines of Piedmonte and some local treasures.... My second stop here since June and we topped this one by sending a couple cases home... we met Reuben's sisters and enjoyed an apertivo with them before we left.... the wines we ordered almost beat us home !!! Thanks Reuben for your hospitality and knowledge.....

Great Wine Selection
Oct 2019
Great place to stop by and taste lots of different wines by lots of different producers! I emailed the owner (Reuben) before my visit and he had arranged for a tasting of 10 wines (3 white, 7 red) along with some snacks! Great place in the back that would work great for group visits!

Our Favourite Place
Aug 2019 • Family
If you are in Stresa looking for great Italian pastas, sauces, food and especially wine to enjoy while there or take home, this is the best place to shop. The service is incredible with Rosario and her son Rueben and daughter Sara taking care of your every need. Drop by just for the experience, taste some wine, try some bread with different sauces and oils .... don’t miss this place!

The Shop that Keeps on Giving
Oct 2018 • Friends
As part of a food and wine tour, one of our stops was La Cambusa. Hostess Rosario and her daughter helped us through a tasting of several wines, olive oils, truffle spread, and balsamic vinegar. The tasting was interesting, and infused with recipes and cooking tips. These shopkeepers are easy to like and almost feel like friends after your purchases are complete.

With dozens of types of olive oil, thousands of wines, and all manner of products used in Italian cooking in the shop, this is one-stop shopping. I bought several jars of preserved truffles, some dried porcini mushrooms, some hot sauce, and tiny preserved fish that I am told can only be fished for about a month each year.

If I didn't have weight limits on my luggage, I would have purchased far more. I loved shopping here, and highly recommend the experience to any and all. And, this shop keeps on giving. They will work with you via email for mail orders anytime. Next time I need olive oil, I'll be in touch! Enjoy!

Great shop and owner
Jul 2018
We were taken to this shop on a walk around Stresa,we don't usually go on these but were gladthat we did this time. The owner Rosaria is a delight, we all had a tasting session, and she gave lots of information and ideas of how to use the products we had tried and other products we had seen looking around. We wish we had bought the reserva balsamic vinegar as it was delicious ,thick and not acidic ,one of our purchases was 'tartufata' truffle sauce. Great on crackers (only a small amount ) also with polenta & eggs.
