My zuppa di fagioli was very good, I highly recommend it. People with me had spaghetti aglio olio and gnocchi di capriolo, they were also very good, especially the gnocchi. My fish (misto trota) was only OK. Deserts we had were good Service was friendly, but little slow.

I was headed for a dinner to a place just down the street when I walked by La Botte and something told me that I have to change my plans. So we decided to change the dinner plan and try La Botte. We were not disappointed. Mozzarella with prosciutto from the oven was great. Lasagna was excellent as was tagliata.... More

We had a fantastic meal. Service was good and the food was excellent (and local). It stood out among the restaurants that we ate at in Stresa.

We had a lovely meal here. The food was excellent and the portions very generous. We had to book to reserve a table at one of their sittings.

No chichi here, just great straightforward food in this bustling and friendly family-run restaurant ruled over by the fabulous and generous Mathilda - delicious artichokes in garlic and parsley, tasty grilled polenta and mushrooms...but then, everything looked good, and everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time!

Without being presumptuous, I've eaten better pasta in Italy. Yet, the atmosphere at this cozy restaurant is good, and so is the service. And you will not feel disappointed, true.

Get there early to guarantee a seat in this 30 seater restaurant. We arrived around 19.00 and within a very short time the place was full. This is not a restaurant where you hang around and like another correspondent we had eaten our starter, main and sweet consumed half a litre of wine paid the bill and left inside an... More

This is old school Italian in a hip Northern Italy resort. Settled on a side street of Stresa, on the Piemonte coast of Lago Maggiore La Botte is a small, cozy, service oriented ristorante. Nothing special or over the top just great food, good service, and proper pricing. Because of the popularity of Stresa I'm pretty sure it caters to... More
