Description: The restaurant, with its fine indoor and outdoor terraces directly overlooking the lake, is known for its regional and creative cuisine, its well-stocked cellar with over 450 labels and the friendly professional courtesy of the young well qualified staff. In summer the gazebo and tables outside, cleverly decorated with flowers and candles make for a cosy romantic atmosphere, special moments where style and taste are a byword. Our philosophy is to be found in our quest for the finest raw materials, their transformation with absolute respect for its essence and integrity, following the finest of Piedmontese traditions while introducing at the same time our characteristic creativity.

Great views over the lake. Ask for an outside table.
Went a la carte but only ate there twice, despite staying in the hotel because the menu is rather limited, food takes some time to arrive and is not as good as they think it is. Small portions for the price.

we ate here twice during a 3 day stay. If i went back i would go half board and eat here every night. Food presented to an extremely high standard. Not cheap but not expensive. Views over the lake are fab. Service from the family who run it are excellent - a great cellar of wines to suit any budget. We had a €20 bottle of local white that blew me away. The scallop linguine was one of the best dishes i had in italy - that is stiff competition.

The food and wines are excellent as is the service. The view is delightful overlooking Lake Orta. This family-run hotel is charming.

We were staying at the hotel to which the restaurant is attached. The restaurant was by far the best part of the stay. The food is 'modern' Italian, elegantly served by well-trained multi-lingual staff and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommended, provided you do not mind families with small children as neighbours.
