We had a wonderful anniversary dinner. The duck was AMAZING, and everything was delicious. It was 5 PM on a Tuesday night and it was empty, but we had a wonderful meal and excellent service.

The first time visit Stresa on January 27, 2020 with my wife and a friend and the atmosphere was good.I ordered 'Roast duck in s rose wine' was too cold and smelled dry for a few days and couldn't eat it. I told the sharing...waiter that this food was like trash but he took the dish without saying sorry and the manager didn't come to me and brought the bill, Really really pissed off !!!!!!More

Our group of 9 people went to Stresa for dinner on a weekday evening. The staff were welcoming and service was fair, given the size of our group. The menu leans toward northern Italian cuisine rather than southern. My wife and I had seafood, which...was OK but not remarkable; the grilled octopus was excellent, the mussels and sole were average. Desserts were average as well. Prices were typical for the New York area.More

Service was outstanding starting with the buonasera. While it was our first time, the maitre d and all the waiters treated us as if we were weekly customers. Pasta dish was excellent. Carpaccio just OK layered on the greens. Would be better off to side....Desserts outstanding. Overall fantastic atmosphere.More

Can’t rave enough about the fine dining experience and staff at Stresa in Manhasset, NY. As soon as my son and I walked in we were drawn in by the beautifully decorated New Years Eve decorations and friendly, extremely friendly and professional staff. They made...us feel like family. It’s difficult to find a fixed price lunch restaurant that do not raise their prices, but we did. For $32.50, we savored the delicious, warmed breads, asparagus soup, chicken cutlet and eggplant entree, chocolate cake and espresso coffee, each more delectable than the next. But, what topped the delicious, fine dining food was the supreme, professional staff who catered to our every whim and made us feel like kings and Queens...boy were we pampered on New Year’s Eve. Don’t even hesitate to try Stresa for the superb ambiance, staff and fine dining experience. Can’t wait to return!More

The food is really delicious and the service excellent. I would not go on a Saturday night because of the high noise level and the service is not at a par as usual. I waited 40 minutes for a table on a Saturday evening with...a reservation.More

We attended a 40Th birthday celebration for a relative, about 20-25 relatives, friends and young children. The food selection, wait staff were beyond unbelievable. For my main course I chose sea bass. Done to perfection. And my husband has another fish selection of stripped bass...another winner. All who attended were happy with the amazing appetizers, entree, and deserts. All in all we’ll be back again for dinner.More

When I go to a restaurant where prices hover at and above $30 it’s the last time I visit. This will be the first one I want to go back to. There were eight of us and whatever was ordered, lamb, roast duck (mine.. one...of the best, and largest, I have ever had) pasta, soup, and then the desserts, every dish was considered to be above average except the pasta, which was just good. Those deserts.. a one of a kind lemon cake, the chocolate soufflé ( extra of course) the cheesecake... just delicious. And then there are the extras which may vary from day to day. This is expensive, and old fashioned, with very professional waiters and assistants. Maybe the cost is why over two hours we only saw one couple under 30, but that is not important. It is simply a wonderful meal. I forgot.. there is a wine list but there area also carafes.More
