We happened across this place whilst walking around the lake. Wonderful views from the balcony and very relaxing meal. Staff were very friendly and the food was lovely.

What a find! We were staying nearby and couldn't be bothered to walk into town to join the tourist crush. Strolled down to the waterside and found this great little cafe/bar, full of locals, all knowingly chowing down on a small but quality menu of pastas, grills and salads. Everything we ate over two dinner visits was tasty and fresh... More

We returned after 6 years to one of our favorite restaurants and were again blown away by the amazing views from the restaurant. The restaurant sits on the lake front at Carciano and due to the fact that its in Carciano rather than Stresa is much quieter than restaurants within Stresa. However you would struggle to get a better view,... More

Go here for drinks and enjoy the view to the Islands and the lake in general. Don't go here to eat. The food is at best mediocre. But the view makes this place worth a visit!

We came here one evening and had a good meal. Came back two days later (different chef in the kitchen) and it was just so-so. Major plus : from the terrace you can enjoy the best possible view on the islands.

Booked a table for two at this place for dinner on a Saturday. Better to start the experience from the beginning and my 12 steps to dining hell at this place! 1. Entered the restaurant 2.

The restaurant is located on the lake with great views of the islands.The food was very good (except the potato dumplings). Steak, salads and light snacks delicious. The waitstaff were pleasant and patient (for folks like us who don't speak Italian). We ate there three times and each time had a great experience.
