Tucked away in the hills behind Orta is this little restaurant. The food was stunning, I had a primi of spaghetti and fagiolini - how simple is that? It was sooo good.

Located off the beaten track is this small restaurant. We at there with our little kid. The food was perfect. The chef made something special for our little kid that wasn't on the menu. He enjoyed it. Service was good.

A group of four of us visited as just down from the villa we were staying in. We ended up visiting twice over the week with both visits being perfect. Steak tartar was a particular favourite, although the fish and other courses were also excellent. The chocolate desert was beyond incredible. If ever anywhere near this restaurant it is a... More

We had fabulous meal sitting on the int balcony of this restaurant just off the main square. We had trouble finding it but it is worth looking for. The food is fine dining, really really good and we were overwhelmed by all the extras we were given between courses. Highly recommended.

Little restaurant in the heart of Orta We've been in this restaurant in July and even though was almost closing time, they welcomed us very warmly. Service was good , friendly and attentive. We especially enjoyed the Antipasti and our fish choice. Good variety of food and fair price for this charming local restaurant. Recommended !

This is a charming restaurant and we would certainly go back if we visit Orta again. The food was lovely with a good choice and we were glad we had spotted it on the way back from a walk. Great care was taken with the food. Lovely.

Ws disappointed to see some negative reviews for this charming little restaurant! We have visited twice and have been very satisfied on both occasions. The service is impeccable, the staff very courteous and the food very good, with an interesting varied menu. The restaurant itself is located in a historical 16th century building which adds additional charm. I could find... More
