We were recommended this place by our hotel concierge. We were four people, all took different dishes, and unfortunately weren't happy with food. The presentation was quite good, however that was it. The food itself- sorry to say, but it was the first place on our vacation in Italy, where all dishes were tasteless, meat was not chewable. One of... More

Ahead of our wedding in Italy, my [then] fiancee and I arranged her birthday meal with Richard at Casabella on Isola Pescatori. We had seventeen guests, so a bespoke menu was arranged in advance on an earlier trip for ease on the night. In short, we had a great time. Richard arranged for the restaurant boat to collect us all... More

Ensure you get a table on the covered terrace looking out towards Stresa to get the best views. Service very friendly. Food very good. Restaurant sent a boat to collect us from our hotel.

I attended as part of a large group (20+ people). Wine: The wine was pre-ordered. The prosecco was average, the white wine was very good. The red wine (a 2014 Dolcetto d'Alba) was undrinkable and hardly any was consumed by the group. Appetizers: Small deep fried fish (whitebait) - these were cold, chewy and not pleasant to eat. 1st Course:... More

Second visit to Casabella and even better this time. Welcomed a shore (from the free water taxi from our mainland hotel) by our waiter. Seated on the balcony with a lovely view of the lake. We tried every course and could not fault any of them. The flavours were delicious and the service was excellent. The recommended wine was also... More

Great meal in a great setting. The flavors they put together at this restaurant on the Isola dei Pescatore were just wonderful. And I found it to be fairly priced for the quality. Dinner was served on the top floor looking out over the water and the shore on the other side of the lake—very beautiful as the sun went... More

Was there for dinner the third week of August, We took the public boat service to get to Pescatori Island, and the restaurant has its own boat to drop off the guests back to Stresa. The place is a small old house and the dining area is on the second floor terrace. The views were spectacular, the service was very... More

Octopus Starter - nearly made me cry it was so good Clam Risotto - best risotto we've ever eaten Dining was on a rooftop terrace - truly spectacular! Eating here felt like a privilege and should have had a star. Service was well intentioned helpful, if a little clumsy but not enough to detract from a fantastic evening.

We tried 3 different restaurants on our trip on Pescatori and this was the best food. Excellent cannelloni starter and beef main course. They have a fantastic cheese called. Eborinato de Capra which is so good we had 3 portions of it! The restaurant verbano has a better terrace / view, but this one has the best food. Good value... More
