If you want to enjoy lunch or dinner with a lovely view of the Island of San Guilio, this place is great. For once, I had an excellent pizza. Not all places are good in Italy. My wife had a pizza called "Del Stelle". Was just awesome as it was pizza with a shape of star and you have mozzarella cheese in the pan (pasta). Ask for Marco as he was a nice waiter and gave us good advise on the red wine.

Very disappointed in this place. We showed up to find out they were not serving any bread or pizza for the night. This was followed by a waitress that visited our table only twice all night - to take our order and bring our food. The wait staff was nowhere to be found. Also, they do not seem to uphold the no smoking rules and allow for smoking in the restaurant area. Would not recommend. Great location on the water, but terrible location and over-priced, basic food.

Good for lunch, drinks and watching the world go by. The outside tables have the best view of the lake and Isola. We only ate at lunch but the pizza, salads and wine were good. I'd recommend the house special pizza. Being there at the end of the summer season there was no rush to vacate our table. Friendly staff.

Wait staff very helpful and friendly, good food and good value. View of the convent on the island quite magical in the evening.

We have visited Orta San Giulio many times, but no trip is complete without lunch at Venus. Its location gives diners the chance to watch the comings & goings on Piazza Motta and to gaze at the lake and its island. The staff are friendly and work very hard - taking orders and offering tourist advice in many languages.

The menu is varied and the food is of high quality and there is an extensive wine list.

Insalata Caprese together with a Roero Arneis or Pizza Vatellinese washed down with a light Grignolino - just a couple of our favourites.
