The location is good, being in a side street and the ambiance was quiet. The food was also good, however, the service was only very average, at best, which spoilt the evening.

Went here on our second night out of fourteen and never went back. Maybe a mistake as my meal was ok but if an ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN ITALY can't make Lasagna there's something wrong. My husband ordered the lasagna it came looking like slop on his plate and the only way he could describe the smell and taste was like dog food.

Ate here on our first night in Stresa and found it very pleasant. Lovely crisp pizzas and I tried the gnocchi with salmon which was delicious. Down a small side street with outdoor and indoor seating.

As we couldn't find a restaurant recommended by our hotel concierge, we picked up "Lago Maggiori", mainly because its menu had a wide enough selection to satisfy each of us. We were glad to find out that all of our choices (pizza, salad, meat, wine and deserts) were very tasty and that the staff was very helpful and friendly. Most of all Nelly the waitress proved to be quite exceptional, being very attentive and always happy to assist and serve us. The next few times we went to this restaurant we actually sought her out because she is so nice.

Food was good and reasonably priced but the waiter/waitress service was diabolical. I would loved to have had a full meal here but found it impossible to catch any of the service staffs eye-- gave up after the main course as , despite the number of serving staff, i just couldn't get served, Without doubt the worst service of the week i spent in Stresa.
