Thhis was one of our better meals and the location is nice just across from the water. You may need a reservation in August and parking anywhere in Stresa is impossible. If you can't find a space go up and park at the Train Station...about 6 blocks to the old town.

Helpful staff and helped us choose a fabulous bottle of primotivo the best wine we had had in a week of being in Italy. We both had veal dishes and superb quality. Left with a feel good factor and plan to return this... More

We walked from our hotel for dinner and found the La Rosa dei Venti. It is a nice Italian restaurant and you can sit inside or outside. Our service was friendly and they spoke good English. We had pizza, spaghetti and Parmaigiana and they were all good and served quickly. For you first time diners you have to request the... More

La Rosa dei Venti ("Compass rose" is the English translation) is an unpretentious restaurant just a few yards from the ferry terminal in Stresa. It attracts a loyal following of locals and visitors alike. There's a lengthy menu of the usual pizza and pasta dishes, plus some local specialties. We've visited several times, and it's all good. If you're from... More

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the owner of our hotel in Stresa. It is at the south end of the strip by the lake and out of the way from the busy plaza. We have been in Stresa for four nights and this was definitely the best place we ate. They served plenty of tasty breads... More

Excellent cuisine at modest prices. Dishes done to order. Friendly and professional family staff customer focused. This is our third visit and the quality is consistently outstanding. Best restaurant in Stresa, Italy.

Our son had his first pizza in Italy here and we all enjoyed the pizzas. Tasty and good value..cheaper than UK. Wine also only 6 euros for half a litre. Friendly service and plenty of room. Recommended for value and view across lake if by the window.

I know the majority of the resort had locked the doors and moved to fairer climes by the time we hit the lakes but we were so thankful that of the 10 or so remaining places to eat this place was still open for business. On our first night we were the only patrons and so we asked to keep... More

This restaurant was a highlight of our visit to Stresa. This time we had a party of 8 and celebrated a wedding anniversary with a couple who has been married for 60 years. The restaurant staff really went over and above to make our event truly special. They even baked a special pastry cake and wrote on it for us.... More
