Wonderful varied tasting menu, good service and wine - but rubbish ambience. The adjoining room had a large family group over two tables, including several young children. There were food fights, yelling, shouting, adults not taking any notice or engaging with children. Such a shame, it was my birthday and we had expected a really special romantic experience in a...

This was an older type restaurant with pristine table covers and good cutlery. Unfortunately, service was so slow that we considered leaving before we had even ordered food. The manager had to constantly remind waiting staff that we were sitting at a table. On the plus side we were offered a free starter, obviously because of the wait, and our... More

My Mrs & I try and take a big trip every 2-3 years, and always around our Anniversary. This trip was to Italy's Lake Country for our 30th Anniversary. We found this restaurant online- and made a reservation on Facebook- and got a reply in short order! We arrived and were seated in the back Dining room, which was actually... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for our final evening in Stresa. We had a lovely corner table- a bit chilly to be outside in the garden. Again, authentic northern Italian cuisine- everything fresh - pasta with more truffles than I would get in any US restaurant. They are so generous! The braised duck was exceptional, full of flavor and done... More

We spend 4 months of the year in nearby Ticino Switzerland. We know a good pasta when we taste one, this restaurant is just appalling! We had Spaghetti with fresh lake fish, the dish looked awful and tasted very fishy, just inedible! One of us had tagliatelle with black truffle no taste whatsoever just a dark mass of tagliatelle with... More

A small attractive restaurant whose owner attends every table. His staff is pleasant and most efficient. Our food was superb. The only pate offered since we have been here and delicious rack of lamb. One of our best meals on this trip.

This is sad to write. There have been a variety of tripadvisor reports so reserved a table here because of the write up in the Rough Guide -" some of the best cooking Stresa has to offer"- I now beg to differ. The place itself is pretty - a lovely garden covered in ancient vines. Menu looked ok if a... More

This place seems to pride itself on being a fine dining food establishment, having been reviewed by the Michelin guide. Yes, the restaurant is pretty fancy for Stresa, including fine ingredients, pricy dishes, etc, but take away all that, and the food itself was okay, very average. We had better meals at less expensive, casual places. Our meals included two... More
