Italy is beautiful, but they are now charging tourists a tax to stay in the Country! Should they not be offering discounts to make us want to visit Italy?

The restaurant is located on the Isola Superiore (aka Isola dei Pescatori) on Lake Maggiore.
Views from its patio are stunning and the freshwater fish menu is also worth checking out. Prices are not too high and I'd recommend visiting the island in the late afternoon, having a quiet dinner here (a chilled white wine is de rigueur) and catching a boat back to Stresa afterwards.

On arrival off the ferry we circled the island and too an outside table in the sunshine beside the lake.
We werte in Stresa for four days and our lunch at Ristorante Italia was the best. The fish risotto was fantastc as was the wine and the service.The waiter gave us a good description of the various lake fish which was very helpful towards making food choices
Highly recommended

This small island off Stresa has a number of restaurants so it is difficult to choose. You should not be disappointed, however, if you choose this one. A little away from the boat landing stage this is a roomy, airy restaurant with a nice view from the shady side back terrace. Service was pleasant. We had two antipasta, one of smoked fish and the other of mixed seafood and fish specialities. Both were excellent and portions were generous. After we had the grilled fish, one of mixed fish and the other of bream Both were excellent and nicely grilled. Even the chips were tasty. Altogether an enjoyable, relaxed lunch with a reasonable price tag.

Went to this seafood restaurant on the island of the fishermen for lunch. We chose this one because it was recommended by an Italian frend. Last place on the left, with sweeping views of the other islands and the beautiful Maggiore coastline. We were treated well, and enjoyed several types of lake fish that were fresh and incredibly flavorful. Especially enjoyed the smoked fish trio (perch, lake salmon, and trout, I think), and the mixed fried fish that had nice portions of those three plus a lot of little crunchy fried whole sardines (?- some type of tiny fish). Delicious, but not too greasy or battered. I would definitely eat here again.
