Il Sole di Ranco is a Michelin Starred restaurant on the east side of the Lago Maggiore, with view over the lake, which make the view perfect for a romantic dinner at sunset. We were here on a Saturday in July, and booked a few hours in advance, but stll got a nicely located table with lake view. The guests are mostly Italian middle to upper class, clearly mostly connoisseurs plus the occasional American tourists who stay at the hotel. The Americans became a bit hysteric when a few harmless insects (maggiolinos) were flying around, but otherwise it is a calm, enjoyable atmosphere. We chose a la carte, with starters and mains. Our starter / first were Green Tagliolini with Squid and Zucchini Pesto and “65 degree eggs” which sound unconventional but is an excellent choice. The local fish is truly excellent. It was prepared in a salt shell, while the fritto misto was great but in my opinion could not compete with the fish. We had an excellent wine by the glass. The bill was 150 euros, which is entirely reasonable for the quality and the atmosphere

Setting is nice, structure mediocre, food great BUT: the rudest, unpolite, careless service ever. Forget it!

Fabulous views from terrace, great food and friendly attentive service. Quite expensive but worth it for special event, and location is v. special.
