“A privilege to eat here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2012

This is the only restaurant on the island and feels as if it has been here for centuries. Probably it has! Just below the Benedictine convent, it’s in a simply amazing spot looking across the lake, tremendously romantic, and understandably popular with young lovers.

Our table was on the terrace downstairs which also has a magnificent view. As vegetarians, we both chose the asparagus terrine followed by San Giulio house salad – nicely cooked and presented.

Our party was a surprise birthday party for a friend. The staff quickly entered into the spirit of it, and we were very grateful for the care they took to get everything right for us.

A privilege to eat here, and a memorable meal.

“Nice restaurant, very slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012

This is the only restaurant on the island and has a nice terrace by the lake.
The service is very slow, go there during mid low season period.

“Unique setting/locals recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

I recently visited friends that live in Lago Orta, Italy. We wanted to treat them to a nice lunch for their hospitality and they recommended Ritorante San Giulio on the island just off Orta S. Giulio. What a great and pleasant surprise. After a short, 5 min boat ride, out to the island we were taken to a very charming lakeside retreat. The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional. The prices were reasonable ($125US) for 5 people including wine and desert. They also have a private boat if you wish to go later in the evening after the ferries stop running. There was a large local group eating there and several couples, but it never felt crowded. The views are fantastic and it was a very special way to end our vacation. I small island, in itself, is worth a visit.
