If you enjoy all kinds of cheeses, soft to strong (bue or old), or bruschetta's (toast with fresh tomato, olive oil, herbs), and all kinds of dry meat, with the possibility to discover very good italian wines, everything at fair prices, then you'll like the place, a small and old stone house settled with wooden furniture. Enjoying for a lunch... More

This is a gem! Just of the main road in Orta you will find this wine bar with lots of wines on the bottle. They have a very small terrace and inside it's not big either. The walls are packed with wine bottles. The prices are all on the bottles. You can have some food (cheese and meat) with your... More

A small and typical tavern close to the main square. Very nice atmosphere. We have made a travel through the menu, trying a little of everything that was proposed that evening . Everything was delicious. The owner was very nice and the service very good. The wine recommended was perfect. Excellent choice for a cold Friday evening!

This is the most atmospheric little enoteca we've ever had the pleasure of visiting. It is hundreds of years old and oozes charm.The very pleasant owner is warm and welcoming. Wine is fabulous. Food is fabulous (try the traditional Piemontese Bagna Cauda). Whats not to love?

We had lunch in this cozy restaurant with very friendly staff. The selection of wines is wide, unlike the food choice. Nevertheless the products were fresh and very tasty.

Had a wine tasting with a hiking group. We couldn't have been more impressed. Three wines, lovely dishes of bruschettas, a fondu of anchovy, garlic and oil with vegetables, truffle on bread. It was all delicious and the owner and his family delightful. One block back from the main street in Orta San Giulio.

We were hosted by VBT, Bea and Claudia, to a 3 course wine tasting. The wine tasting menu was appealing. The local favorite, an anchovy fondue served hot with fresh vegetables and bread, bruchetta, cheeses, meats and dessert. A u inquest find on the shores of lake orta. One road back from the main square
