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.

Was recommended to eat here and it did not disappoint. Food was excellent and so was the service by Mathilda.

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

This restaurant is very small so come early otherwise you will wait. The food is very tasty and service is fast. Very good place to have a dinner in Stresa.

We were driving from Siena to Strasbourg and had a one night layover in lovely Stresa (stayed at amazing La Palma Hotel). While walking around town in the afternoon we walked by La Botte and thought it would be fun for dinner. I emailed them while enjoying drinks at the SkyBar at the La Palma (highly recommended) and they immediately... More

We had dinner last Tuesday evening at la Botte with another couple while on vacation. We did not pick this restaurant but were thrilled that the other couple chose La Botte! The restaurant is quite small but this is part of the charm. The decor is rustic and comfortable. All of the guests ended up interacting with each other and... More

Out during the day, my husband and I were scanning menus in search of a place to book a dinner for the evening ahead. The restaurant looked Italian cosy and the woman there was so friendly and inviting that we booked for that evening. Knowing that we were bringing our dog she insured we had a nice table where we...

Small, busy restaurant on a side street between lake and the square. Casual and very good. We very happy with both starter and the main course. They didn't have the wine we order but recommended a very nice alternative, good service.

We visited this restaurant for dinner having made a reservation the day before and having read the 'glowing' reviews of previous customers. Our experience was not however, the 'great' experience most of the reviewers had expressed. Despite the advanced reservation and a early (7pm) time slot, we were given a table at the back of the small restaurant and was... More
