We only stopped by for quick pick-me-ups during a torrential storm but the food was good and the hot chocolate was simply excellent. Views over the lake are an added bonus.

We were in Orta San Giulio for 20 days and Venus was one of our favorites restaurants. The food is tasty and the view is great! Unhappy was winter, but during the spring and summer time must be even better!

Ristorante Venus is the perfect location whether your dining downstairs or upstairs depending on the season you travel. The menu selection is extensive, good wine and friendly staff. Worthwhile a visit.

We went to this Pizzeria after arriving in San Giulio. the Pizzas were ok although a little on the faty side. what we didnt like was the fact that if you order a Pizza you can't be sitting with the view to the lake.
