The restaurant is split into an in-house area at the front and the preferred semi open area at the back. Although we had not booked we were given a table at the back. The menu is varied. The quality of the food very good. The service was interesting. I think the lady restaurant manager was having a bad night. A group came in who wanted to be seated at the back of the room. An almighty argument erupted that resulted in the group being ejected. Great entertainment for the diners. The service was very good but the serving staff seemed to be looking over their shoulders all the time to see if they were in any way about to suffer the wrath of the manager. By the time we came to pay the bill she was in a much better frame of mine and we had a long chat that revealed that in her youth she had worked in a town quite close to where we live.. Would we dine here again, definitely. Nice Room, Good food and service and very good value for money and you might get free entertainment.

we've had dinner here in the past but this year's visit was a disappointment, maybe it was an off night. Had dinner with friends the service was off but the meals were ok.

Restaurants in Stresa are plentiful and many invite you in. This is different. Rather old-fashioned and with delightful all-female staff - the night we went. I can't understand the bad reviews - especially those mentioning awful wine. They have a simple and very cheap list of local Piemontese wines - don't know about the carafe wines which tend to be fizzy in this region - even the reds! I am hooked on Vitello tonnato - cold thinly-sliced veal covered with a sort of tuna mayonnaise and capers to decorate. €10 euros here and perfect. My wife and daughter had a half a chicken and chips and a salad. All lovely and very friendly staff. We had to wait a bit, presumably because the chicken - polletto - was being cooked from scratch. But if you are on holiday who minds waiting and sipping a lovely glass of local wine - Erbaluce on this occasion - not very well known but a white well worth a try.

The staff are quite attentive and friendly. The food is very good especially the veal. Nice restaurant that is larger than it appears from the outside.
