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

We were a group of 8 who had been recommended to try this restaurant. The setting by Lake Orta was magical & we had high expectations. The menu we found was had to choose from as none of us liked the selection offered. The raw prawn appetiser was very unappealing. We had thought that they meant "cold" not "raw !... More

Beautifully located right on Lake Orta, the restaurant is a lovely place for a romantic dinner. My husband had the delicious seafood ravioli, and I had the good (not great) tagliatelle with fish ragu. For our main course, I had the branzino, which was moist and flavorful and delightful. My husband had the fabulous calamari skewers; the calamari was perfectly... More
