fantastic location but a tired menu, overpriced and the waitress below standard. Pushy and sometimes responding with a lack of finesse

the food was not fresh. Veal Milanese just can't be cooked that quick and was dry with little flavour. The pasta dishes were poor with overplayed sauce. some good staff cheered us up but for the wonderful town of Orta this is not good enough,
