They were very helpfull and easy to deal with leading up to the wedding and sorted all our requests. When we arrived after the ceremony they put on a really nice table of nibbles which were all...

It was poring rain but the view on the lake and area was super nice. Service friendly and the food was amazingly good. One of the dishes was blue berry risotto with a fondue cheese and that combination was a nice surprise in taste and color. Next time when I'm in the area I try to go there when the... More

It is a struggle to say which is better at this restaurant - the view or the food. I maintain my opinion that Lake Orta is the most stunning of all the Italian lakes, and the view from this restaurant only goes to prove this. The food is also divine - fresh ravioli with shrimp and cod; blueberry risotto; pink... More

I have eaten here with some friends, and the setting is really really good, as you sit in front of the lake. So 5 out of 5 for the atmosphere and view. Service very good, or what you would expect from a restaurant, professional, helpful, responsive and checking on customers. Food, 3 out of 5, as none of the plates... More

A group of us took over this lovely restaurant for a wedding reception. It was fabulous, a simply wonderful evening. Great food (huge portions) and booze was selected and the service was excellent throughout. It was a wonderful evening. Thank you to everyone involved.

It was around this time last year that we started searching for our wedding reception venue on Lake Orta and found so much information we found it difficult to decide where. If you're one of those couples like us making this decision, look no further, if you want a spectacular location, drinks that keep coming, beautiful food, friendly staff and... More

The food here was good on the whole. We ate here a couple of times and some of the dishes were good and some were exceptional. My Pike with Saffron Sauce was delicious and my wife's tuna were both wonderful. The pear, chocolate and orange tarte was delicious and we were glad that we shared as it was a good... More
