We picked a platter to split, cheese and ham, as we just wanted something small to eat to the wine. Not only did we have to pay for 2 platters but they tried to charge more for the wine. They pointed to a different menu...More

Very good place with a amazing view of the Orta Lake. The food we ate was very good (cod fish and a pasta). Also the cheese was very good.

The best table in town if you get a table on the waterfront of the main square. Not so good on a busy night if you are put behind the building. Service can be slow on a busy Saturday night but pleasant enough. Pizzas and...More

Accidentally drove straight into the Piazza down a very windy single track road that looks impassible to any vehicle over the size of a BMW 3 series. Deceptive as it was we managed to squeeze through and drove straight into the piazza to find ourselves...More
