Previously have eaten on the terrace downstairs, but this year we visited twice and ate in the more formal rooms upstairs with beautiful Piemontesi ceilings and wonderful views across the lake. Very enjoyable experience. They serve lake fish, pasta and local dishes. The lemon risotto...More

A great place for lunch when on the island. We had great service and enjoyed caprese salad and cantaloupe with ham. Take a break when on the island. Great view back to the mainland while you are there.

Charming restaurant overlooking the water on the Isola d'Orta - the only place to eat on the island. There are either formal dining rooms overlooking the water or the nicer I thought shady downstairs terrace. Dinner is complicated as it involves getting a ferry there...More

This restaurant reminds me when I was in school.The wine is horrible - the pasta is OK and the main plate has nothing to do with a restaurant. Waiting for dessert. Even at 18 euro it seems expensive I have a degree in Hotelmanagement and...More

We spent 15 minutes just to get a menu which I finally took by myself. The waiters were ok, but overwhelmed. The food was nothing special, like a cantine. Even if we ordered the house menu, we had to wait too much for everything. We...More

We have lunched here about a dozen times over three years in April/May/June and thoroughly enjoyed it. This must be one of the best located restaurants in Europe. A trip across the lake from the town, excellent terrace and internal rooms, good service, friendly owners...More

The only restaurant on the island, right on the lake, food was unbelievably good, we tried several dishes, from the soup to the desserts. Waiting staff was cordial and attentive, overall I highly recommend it

Amazing place...average hospitality. The welcoming was extremely poor even rude. Once we got to the table instead service improved a lot. Food was on the average level however the view on the lake was incredible. This is the only restaurant on the island
