In November Stresa was closing down at the end of season so it was hard to find places that were open. Cafe Gigi was. They had gelato when we needed it, excellent coffee, hot chocolate, and cookies in the morning, and even went out of their way to make us a "diner" when we wanted to eat early at 6:00... More

We had a lovely experience here stopping in for pre dinner drinks. We sat outside with a lovely view of the lake and our waitress was just great. Along with our drinks we were given peanuts, olives. and delicious bite size pizzas all complimentary --apparently this place has excellent sweets which I would like to try another time.

We've had a long stay over in Stresa and this was by far the best location for: cappucino, brioches, delicious cakes. Another tip worth mentioning is that they have great wifi connection which was a plus since we were able to plan our travel.

A fun bar at the end of the promenade at Stresa, was recommended by friends and given a good write up in an Australian travel magazine. The bar features live music - while we were in Stresa it was provided by Tino Malerba - playing the piano/keyboard and singing to many international favourites. The bar provides a wide selection of... More

Visited here most days with my wife and we both loved the atmosphere and friendly service. One of the best cafes to sit and watch Stresa go by.

It is hard to get a nice cup of tea in Italy which is dominated by coffee culture. Gigi Bar was a great find as they offer an excellent afternoon tea with wonderful cakes. We liked it so much we went twice. Very friendly staff too. You can sit inside or out so the weather is not a problem. Would... More
