“Good food freshly cooked”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

We had eaten in a couple of places and were pretty disappointed-typical tourist fare. Then we found the Pappagallo! Very Italian, cooked to order and friendly staff. Highly recommended

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Very good and very Italian just go and enjoy the food. Can be busy with locals - always a good sign. The pizza and the pasta are excellent, the meat and fish are great and the desserts are scrummy.

“Best pizza in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

After trying pizza at two other restaurants and finding them really tough, we were told it was because they were cooked in conventional ovens and to try Pappagallo. What a difference. It's a busy, bustling place and we got a table out back in the partially-covered courtyard garden bounded on one side by the lovely wall of an old church whose bells chimed a little musical tune - magical. The food and staff were great - definitely recommend this one. Sadly we were too full to take advantage of the dessert selection which looked very enticing.....!!!

“Our favorite place to eat in Stresa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We've been to Stresa twice in the last two years and each time have eaten here multiple times. It's one of our favorite places. The prices are very reasonable, the food is great and wine cheap :) Our waiter last time was so funny and personable, that we had an especially enjoyable time. I recommend reservations, since it gets crowded at night. On the night that we didn't have any, the only seats available were outside, where it was cold and damp. We drank enough wine to keep warm, but still had enough sense to make some reservations for the proceeding night. This restaurant should definitely be rated higher. We'll be back in two months & plan on coming back.

“Inside and outside.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

We have been to Stresa many times, but we just "discovered" Pappagallo. Any restaurant that has a line outside just has to be good. And it was. A chilly October night, we at in the "piazza"--The food was great.
