Food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Staff were really friendly and the view across the lake was very picturesque. I would definitely go here again.

The restaursnt/hotel is right by the lake looking out at the island. The food was average and the wine by the glass was disappointing and overpriced. Giving it 4 stars because of the location. Don’t miss visiting this wonderful town.

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,
