Easily one of the best meals of my life. I visited with my family in September for lunch out on the patio over looking the lake, after the restaurant was recommended by our taxi driver Matteo.

We were treated like family by the female owner who was so kind and friendly. The food was simply stunning. I can’t recommend the experience more highly!

Thank you for the amazing food and service!

The food was good but not great.
Some but not all of our order was great
The chef was great and very attentive
Some of the wait staff were great
Some were snobby
Our service, therefore,was good but not great
The seating...Not sure why we were asked if we had a reservation and why we were the only ones sitting inside??!
The prices .., deserved everything to be great!

I have been here already 2 times and both good experience. The food is eccellent, the service as well.
The wine list is super ( maybe some more Veneto wines...) and the view from the terrace on the Lago Maggiore is breathtaking.
It is not cheap, of course, but it' s an excellent experience.

This was our second time to Taverna Del Pittore. My husband and I first visited last summer and had an unforgettable meal and evening. We could not wait until our next trip to Italy when we could dine here again. One year later and this time with a few friends...Chef Renato did not disappoint! Not only was the food amazing, but also the view, the service and hospitality from the staff were all remarkable. I had the traditional Catalonia-style Scampi with thinly sliced tomatoes, yellow peppers and basil. Oh Wow, Spectacular! It had a burst of summer flavor and so so tender! Additional dishes that received rave reviews from our group: Shellfish Spaghetti with special house bisque; Duck Breast with foie gras sauce and spinach; Pork Loin with mustard sauce. We highly recommend this restaurant, its such a treasure! Also, make sure to save room for some Cherry Flambé served table-side!

This is an elegant restaurant on the shore of the lake, with indoor seating and a bright veranda overlooking the lake and the spectacular fort of Angera. The ambience is romantic and refined. Located in Arona, this restaurant is specially frequented by tourists but it is also ideal for couples, families and business lunches or dinners. The staff is very helpful and professional. The dishes are well presenteded. A finally and nice note: at the end of the evening, the patron comes out of the kitchen and turns among the tables conversing lovingly with the guests.
Really nice restaurant and experience!
