The trattoria is located, almost hidden, in a quiet area away from the main piazza of Stresa. It does not appear, during the week days at least, to get too busy. It has a small menu compared to some but the quality of the food is hard to beat. The staff are very pleasant and attentive and speak English. They were very relaxed about how long we stayed at our table. I chose a taglioni pasta dish with ham and asparagus for a starter and just enjoyed it so much - my best pasta dish ever. We went back to the trattoria another evening as the food was so good. They offer a house wine (0.5 litre) costing only 6 euros and both red and white wines were of good quality.

maybe, Phil, you had a dinner at the Osteria degli amici, the Pizzeria in the square next to our trattoria: We don't serve pizza, minestrone and seafood!!! However we'll happy to delate your compliments to our neighbours, friends and colleagues.

Could have eaten most on this menu! Good service and very friendly chatty staff. Restaurant is a bit hidden away so need to look for it.

We had a late dinner that was simple but perfect. Lamb cooked perfectly for two people who each ordered different degrees of doneness. Ravioli with ricotta Lemon and walnuts. A mixed salad of perfectly fresh ingredients. A wonderful meal with attentive service and a charming atmosphere. Many locals eating when we came in. Go!

This restaurant was closed for maintenance until our last day in Stresa as we passed it every day on our way into the town. Service was quick and friendly although there was a large party eating. They had some unusual dishes including donkey which I tried. My selection of lake fish was excellent but enough for two so I could not finish it.
