“Lovely outlook”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

We were in this village for one week and we can say definitely that this cafe serves the very best coffee (how Australians like it anyway!!)
The serving staff are very friendly and the outlook is worth a million dollars.

“Great old building with atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

I had the fish which was a filleted and served with potatoes, olives, capers and tomatoes in olive oil. Very tasty and fresh. My husband enjoyed the mushroom risotto but found that the other entree dish he had of prawns with zucchini in pasta was not as tasty. Wine was very good. Prices are low,
The service is a bit slow because they only have one lady who takes the orders and serves the drinks, the other waiter justs delivers the food and clears the tables.

“ping, goes the microwave”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

it was our first evening in orta san giulio and we spotted this small restaurant with an inviting patio. we opted for the menu - big mistake. the starter, presumably an assortment of salami, was the oddest and worst i've ever bern presented: 3 small slices of salami stuck in curd together with three cheese crackers and some sort of leftover involtini that could have easily been mistaken for something entirely different. my husband's seafood salad was edible but that was all. the primi piatti came straight from the microwave; they were so fresh we could even hear the "ping" from the kitchen. when i told the owner that this was not at all what i had expected, i was educated this was a traditional dish...yup, courtesy of iceland or bofrost. the vitello tonnato were a few slices if meat covered in mayonnaise straight from the jar. we skipped dessert and passed on the delights of yet another convenience food provider. summary: if you are into microwave dishes - this is the place to go!

“Best Bar in Orta”

We loved this cafe bar. It is the trendiest in town. The staff were so friendly and helpful and full of information on where to go and what to do around Orta. Highly recommended.
