“Top quality food.”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Delicious food, in idyllic location overlooking the lake. Beautifully cooked and presented. Very good wine list and one spends hours just gazing at the wonderful scenery from the terrace. Very romantic.

Great position, beautiful terace. A limited selection of food on menu, but good quality and very efficient and friendly service. A nice relaxing atmosphere. Delicious deserts too!

“One of our Favorites”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for many years when we visit Lago D'Orta and highly recommend it. The views are lovely and the service is always excellent as it is a family run place. The various goat cheeses served with different jams and two types of honey are absolutely delicious. We house made pasta dishes are also quite good, especially the one with lobster. We also like the lake fish trio as well as some of the other fish selections for the second. The wine selection is also very good. We tend to like the Volpe Passini whites and the wines from the friulli region. At the end of the meal with coffee they will bring a little dish of local cookies or the brutti e buoini cookies which are a great way to finish the meal.

“Wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We all ordered the local fish, which was delicious and well-prepared. While the food is good, the atmosphere is what makes this a "go to" restaurant in Orta San Giulio. The outdoor terrace is canopied by grape vines so thick the rain doesn't come through.
