We booked a table for 7pm and were welcomed by the delightful host. This is a small restaurant so advisable to book. House wine excellent, good French fries, I had the steak which was cooked to perfection, good salad too.

Highly recommended and would return. Food unpretentious, service very convivial. Interesting dishes (eg. pappardelle with Saffron and porcini mushrooms). Fish was very good. (we are very fussy eaters and foodies). Wine by glass options good.

We have been for dinner three times in the last week and every time the meal was outstanding. Matilda and her team are the friendliest and most welcoming we have found in Stresa. They make you feel right at home and go out of their way to ensure you are enjoying your meal and are happy. We will definitely go... More

We had a most amazing meal at la Botte. The blonde lady who works there tried everything to have us in the coolest spot next to a door and under a Aircon. Their cotelette are Devine and huge! Chips lovely! Their pastas are all absolutely lovely! Very nice place that we look up every year when we go to Stresa

This time we experienced the restaurant as far too busy with serving us and get us out again. 3 seatings is too much and is unfortunately decreasing service and overall experience significantly. We missed the previous waiter who knew how to make guests feel welcome and sharing his knowledge of local wineyards. Food tasted unfortunately very ordinary - get the... More

Great little restaurant with very attentive staff. Slightly uncomfortable seating and rustic setting but boy the food is very good! The veal escalope was the best I have ever tasted as we're all the meals had by the four of us. Not overpriced at all and has to be in the top three of restaurants in Stresa.

If staying in Stresa try and find time to eat here. Booking 24hrs in advance is recommended as it is a small restaurant that is very busy. Decor is an eclectic mix which adds to the character of the restaurant . We had the caprese and squid as starters followed by wild boar and lamb ravioli. Excellent! Tiramisu and pana... More

Had a lovely evening here this week. We turned up without a reservation and were told we could have a table in 15 minutes. True to their word, we had a lovely table by the window. The staff here are really friendly and still remember us as we walk past. We had a chateaubriand which was cooked perfectly. Would highly... More

We had a fantastic dinner at this very busy little italian trattoria. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. We were so pleased with the experience that we returned to the same place the following evening. :) Highly recommended.

We were recommended to go here and the food was very good and moderatly priced. I found the room a bit stuffy and overwarm but worth trying if you like quaint and quirky.
