Stopped in here on the recommendation of a friend and was very impressed. They focus on in-season and locally sourced ingredients. The food, service and ambience were all excellent. Highly recommended as a great place to eat in Arona.

This place has it all! Great service, food, wine, and atmosphere. The owner Stefano is so friendly and filled with a wealth of knowledge of wine to pair your meal perfectly. With a quick email he always has a seat for me and my guests. It is the go to spot for all my friends and family who visited.

We were the first customers of the quiet and rainy night but soon the place was full. Really friendly and personal service by the patron himself, superb risotto after which we skipped the secondi just as he predicted. This is an enoteca so the wines served with every course were splendid, even when we took them by the glas. Nice... More

We just finished our meal at the restaurant. Every course we tried was so carefully prepared, from the appetizer down to the dessert. The staff shared wine choices, with a story of the grape and region of origin. They shared ingredients and described each item we savored. The atmosphere in the restaurant was quiet but personal.

The food is excellent, the wine range is wide and high quality. The place is great for a dinner, for a quick brunch of just for wine tasting in the evening. The owner is very nice and the explanation of the wines or the dishes is completed, nice and not boring at all. It's probably the best choice in Arona... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant on our last night in Italy, and it was absolutely amazing! The food was unique, carefully prepared, and DELICIOUS! We chose the full course meal, and I got the filet with a pistachio sauce as my main course - cooked perfectly. The staff was warm and welcoming, and the decor was very romantic... More

I am an American living in Italy, and worth it to have lunch or dinner here. It is my 4th time at this restaurant and always excellent. Food quality and ambiance is fantastic. Wine list exceptional. Try the Valpollicella Ripaso Ca Rugate. Great price/ quality.
