The reataurant is located on the square with outside seating and a great view of the lake & island. We had spinach dumplings with a light gorganzola cream sauce that was delicious, a guinea fowl breast that was flavoured perfectly with herbs & cooked perfectly. For desert there was what they called a chocolate bonet. It was light & perfect... More

We visited the lovely village of San Giulio on a beautiful, bright and sunny afternoon and after a while we got hungry. We were looking for a decent restaurant for lunch that was not a - too obvious - tourist trap (and had Risotti Funghi on the menu card). My husband and I decided for the Ai Due Santi and... More

Nice place, in front of island of San Giulio. Very good service. My wife ate a delicious grilled veal. Meanwhile, a fantastic ossobuco made my joy! Here, prices are very reasonable. I already miss this place...

Right on the square where you can see the island. We sat outside and enjoyed great service and herbed ravioli with browned butter for me and Linguini and clam for Bob, Crème bruelle for dessert and of course we enjoyed a bottle of local wine. The view could not be beat. It was a great fall evening. Almost magical.

Orta is a very special place with its view over to its island which centres on a monastery going back to the early days of Christianity. The island isn't much commercialised and the restaurants along the square have a close up view of the island - the boats only take 5 minutes (and it's well worth going). I'd read both... More

Not only was the view good, the food was too. Warm seafood salad to start, followed by lake trout. Drinks were good value as well

Awesome location on the place in front of the island, last sun rays of the day... Rather simple but appealing menu. Food is good and ingredients are of quality. Service is impeccable. Good place to stay at.

This is the second time we have had lunch here and we'd come back again. Despite the lovely menu with both fancy and simple options the owner even offered to cook something special if needed! We decided on a prima and secondi and were going to get an ice cream on the way back to the hotel. However desserts being... More

Cracking menu full of choices, and they were even prepared to make something that wasn't on the menu if we so wished. There was enough to choose from and the food was delicious and service very attentive when we needed. Beautiful view of the lake and the island too! Our second time at this little gem and it won't be... More
