Went for a weekend lunch. Nice restaurants deserve a dinner in my view, but here also the location has its value and being late autumn, daylight directly on the shore is making it more enjoyable. Had appetisers, starters and cheese, all well prepared and nicely served. A good bottle of Ghemme completed a pleasant lunch. Service of a young couple... More

This is our 4th visit and we had our wedding reception here last year. Food is amazing and staff very good, you must go here one of the best in the area. Choice of food is mainly fish and wine selection is very good.

We had prosecco and nibbles on arrival, Antipasti, Primi Course of pasta or risotto, main course or seabass or beef and dessert of fruit pies or chocolate mousse. Followed... More

It was poring rain but the view on the lake and area was super nice. Service friendly and the food was amazingly good. One of the dishes was blue berry risotto with a fondue cheese and that combination was a nice surprise in taste and color. Next time when I'm in the area I try to go there when the... More

It is a struggle to say which is better at this restaurant - the view or the food. I maintain my opinion that Lake Orta is the most stunning of all the Italian lakes, and the view from this restaurant only goes to prove this. The food is also divine - fresh ravioli with shrimp and cod; blueberry risotto; pink... More

I have eaten here with some friends, and the setting is really really good, as you sit in front of the lake. So 5 out of 5 for the atmosphere and view. Service very good, or what you would expect from a restaurant, professional, helpful, responsive and checking on customers. Food, 3 out of 5, as none of the plates... More

A group of us took over this lovely restaurant for a wedding reception. It was fabulous, a simply wonderful evening. Great food (huge portions) and booze was selected and the service was excellent throughout. It was a wonderful evening. Thank you to everyone involved.
