Staff very helpful but busy. Food good value and above average. Fine selection of wines by the glass. Scallops starter very nice, followed by amberjack, an interesting choice of fish. Ambience on the terrace was very pleasant. Would recommend a visit

We had one of the best meals of our entire 16 day trip to Italy at this restaurant! It's off the beaten path in Stresa, but well worth the visit. If the weather is warm enough, sit on the patio in the back!

Very welcoming and genuinely friendly. I did not read any low ratings as it could only be some with an axe to grind or fearful of paying fair prices for superior food and service. Everything and I mean everything was superb. The staff: Martina and...More

Went here for Sunday lunch early- and it got very busy later on. Great atmosphere with plenty of families and few tourists ! We had their lobster special which was delicious. Also a very nice Gerwurtztraminer. Reasonable prices and friendly staff. Well recommended.
