Overcooked rubbery calamari with a different sauce than advertised on menu and the lettuce served with it had seen better days. Risotto was al dente to be kind, raw & crunchy to be realistic. Deserts look bought in and not very impressive. This was supposed to be a treat for us but had much better meals at much more downmarket places. The hotel & views were great but would not recommend eating in the restaurant.

We stopped overnight at a nearby hotel and checked the web for local eateries. Ramada's in house Italian restaurant caught our eye as it was close by. Staff were very welcoming and pleasant with a good sense of humour. We ordered a steak which simply melted in the mouth and a delicious freshly made mushroom pasta dish. Special mention to Cameron who,despite working late and then back in for breakfasts was polite attentive and cheerful. A great team and fantastic chef, well worth a visit and we will be back!!

Don't be conned by website , you have a limited choice of overall bland food . In my opion in life you have to speculate to accumate . We had chosen 3 courses each from the advertised menu only to find a limited choice on offer , if we had had full options we would of probably spent over £60 . Then the food it's self well it was only worth 50% of what we paid . Service poor , not a snob but please lets taste wine before you pour . To end Stresa shouldn't advertise as a Italian , as doesn't come anywhere near . Would i go again ..... Not in this life time .

We had carbonara, fish and chips and toffee pudding with ice cream. The food was fantastic and so was the service. Very friendly staff. Good pricing too. After a long travel day we were so happy to have this place to go to inside our hotel. Good way to end our day.
