Visited this restaurant on Sunday afternoon. We had the desire to enjoy a relaxing Sunday meal in beautiful surroundings that is Stresa. The ewaiter was keen to show us to a table, he failed at that point to manage our expectations that they were closing. The waitress came to take our order, we asked for 2 minutes to finally decide; she told us then kitchen was about to close and we must order at once. The food was delivered faster than a McDonalds, along with the bill and then the waiter asking us pay and go as they were closed. We asked to use the toilets and were refused as they had already mopped the floor.
As I said nice food and service Basil Fawtly would be proud of.

Thank Carolyn W

We ate here a few years ago and found it very enjoyable so this was the second time we had a meal here. Very pleasant atmosphere, choice of seating in a covered area in adjacent square, under vines in courtyard or inside. The choice of food is good and very enjoyable. Wine sold by carafe or bottle. Good value.

Another excellent restuarant slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the main piazzas. Good fish dishes and good pizza.

This place was pleasant enough though the waiters all looked a bit scruffy and fed up. The food was very nice though and it wasnt expensive. If you sit underneath the vines it tends to bring out the flies. All in all a nice enouh experience.
