“Not worth the price”
Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

The meals are miniscule. The cooking is weird, I did not like a single meal. Service is great overall but the white wine was served warm. I regret visiting this place.

Thank Igor A

“great position, beautiful food and excellent service. Very expensive”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

Right on the Lake with lovely gardens. Very traditional decor which added enormously to the attraction of this very well run family hotel.

“one more time”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

It's been 40 years (unbelievable, I know!) that we have dinner there, almost once a year. The quality of the food and the service has always been great. Pasta has always been unbelievable: the best of all Italy (at least of all the Italy I know, and I am italian and I still prepare my own pasta at home). We always eat "coregone" as second course: it's a fish from the lake and sometime, when it's available, "pesce persico"; a small tasty fish, also from the lake.
The view is great from the terrace, and also in autumn you can eat there.
Price is also very reasonable and the service just perfect. Go on sunset: it's worth.
I almost forgot: they have their own parking, and that's really important because sometimes is difficult to park around.

Words cannot express the experience of this restaurant. Even for all you jaded types who already know how wonderful the food is in Piedmont (yes! Lago Maggiore is in Piedmont! and Verbania comes along with it), it will still be fabulous. At-your-elbow-but-invisible service, in the best European tradition. Food to die for. View across the lake (if you get a good table). Free little gift for the ladies. Big wine list. Friendly helpful English-speaking maitre d' when needed. Hard to beat, anywhere. Expensive, but don't miss it if you are in Verbania.

“Charming, convenient, tasty”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

We visited Milano for our first dinner in Palanza thanks to other's excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. As it was our first time in the region, we asked them to bring food and wine typical of the region and were not disappointed from several fish fresh from Lago Maggiore and white wines typical of the Piedmont region. The view of the lake was delightful as were the friendly and solicitous staff. Another easy recommendation if you are in the region.
