Nice restaurant, friendly service and good unpretentious Italian food at fair prices. If you visit take a look at the wine shop that is part of the restaurant.

It was a warm sommer evening, absolutely right to eat outside.The service was very kind to us and we didn't have to wait for too long for the dinner. They had only few suggestions, but they were cooked like by a real italian mom, just delicious!! I'm looking forward to the next time.

We had dinner and lunch at Al Cantinone/Astic Osteria Al Cantinone several times during our stay i Luino. The food is very nice and not expensive, the owner Michele did go out of his way to help us. The food very tasty and you can get 2 dishes with water and coffee for a reasonable price.

The restaurant was simple and cozy, and the food was homemade and delicious. My wife had the insalata verde and I the Insalata mista. Both were farm fresh. The Gnocchi Pomodoro melts in your...

Sometimes it happens that a warm and friendly welcome and service and an interesting interior is more important than the taste of food. So it was here.
