Quaint location. Food good quality but no real vegetarian options (one of us was vegetarian). Waiter less than friendly.

We were really looking forward to a great night out here after reading some of the reviews. However, the welcoming was far from warm or inviting. The staff were obliging without being friendly which impacted on the atmosphere for the evening. The food was delicious but the experience overall was just not enjoyable. There is a lot to be said...

We made a booking with great expectations, given the reviews on TA. At the end of the night we were disappointed - not so much with the food but more so with the ambience and the fact we didn't feel welcome by the staff on hand. As stated the pasta and other dishes we ordered were of a great standard... More

Take the time to make a reservation if its busy... This is really a top quality restaurant - excuisit quality and great service. The upside often overlooked is that the prices are exactly the same as other restaurants - but so much better food and overall experience! We will come back to Stresa just to enjoy a wonderful evening and... More

Went here twice Tried the lake fish platter, gazpachio, sea bass, scallops and panna cotta. Fish prepared, cooked (where cooked) and presented well; worthy of more formal recognition. The panna cotta had a perfect wobble and flavour. The wine list was not huge but the staff know what they have and feel confident in sharing their knowledge. This was very... More

We booked this restuarant after checking TA reviews and it certainly lived up to those reviews. There was a very good choice, we chose the prawn and scallop ravioli ( it was delicious) and a good wine list too. Service was excellent and the whole experience made for a very enjoyable birthday meal. It was so good we returned later... More

We booked (as recommended by TA reviewers) and we needed to: many people were turned away disappointed. The small restaurant is classically decorated and has a warm feeling. The food was delicious and well priced, as was the wine. Special mentions go to the fois gras ice cream starter and a wonderfully wobbly Panna cotta dessert. The price was very... More

Starter of foie gras done 2 ways, one of which was as icecream! Lettuce pudding was unusual but the sauce fab. Lamb stinks well worth having. Husband had a pasta dish. 2 courses, mineral water, half a bottle of wine and coffee was 68euros.
