We have stopped for ice-cream cornet which was fantastic - not a large selection but those tried were just perfect. Definitely worth a stop before leaving the island

We had lunch here while visiting Isola Bella. The restaurant was pretty empty so had prime seating on the first floor terrace overlooking Lake Maggiore. Our waiter was friendly and had a good sense of humor. We had seafood linguine and taglialini with local fish from the lake. The pasta was tasty and reasonably priced. It was nice to not... More

If you are in the Lago Maggiore area and you go to Isola Bella to visit the Palazzo Borromeo, you would do well to eat here. We were a party of three and dined on the 2nd floor terrace under a grape arbor. The pastas were perfectly done and the 'Insalata Isola Bella' was filled with fresh local ingredients. A... More

One of the few restaurants opened when we visited Isola Bella in mid Oct. Just a few steps to the ferry landing, so a good place to have some food without having to worry about the ferry timing. The waitress serving us was friendly, spoke good English and took good care of us. The food was typical Italian. The restaurant... More

This restaurant has a fabulous terrace overlooking the lake but the service is poor and food very mediocre. If you are happy just to enjoy the view and pay for the setting rather than the food or service, then go for it. We waited ages for our food despite only two other tables occupied. Staff pretty disinterested in their customers!

Elvezia Restaurant was a great find. They have some great seats with views of the lake. This is a great place to sit back eat, and enjoy the view. Atmosphere is real relax, and casual. The food was of a high quality, and I really enjoyed my meal. The seafood was fresh, and they had done some creative work with... More

These islands are so full of tourist stuff and crowded eating places. This was a bit of an oasis with a view of the water. We had a lunch of smoked trout and salads, an unusual club sandwich and melon and prosecute. A wonderful bottle of Pinot Grigio at a great price.
