Ideal place to start with an aperitif. They offer a good selection of food. Service is friendly and the food is tasty.

Perfect place for watching the world go by either in or out of the sun. Friendly staff but cannot comment on food as out of season so unable to eat there.

Stopped in for a quick dinner around 8PM with two adults and one child. Place was full but got lucky on an outside table. Wide selection of pasta and pizzas and prices very reasonable if not cheap. Food and service were okay but nothing special.

We spend several moments sitting for a drink or having diner by Leila. The restaurant is a nice place, laying in front of the Isola di Orta. The food was good and the atmosphere fine.

Grabbed a quick evening meal here and was impressed by the quality of the food and friendliness of the service. The restaurant also has an excellent canopy in case of rain (which it did very heavily whilst we were there). I ordered the lasagne Genovese...More

Not as good as the Venus on the other side of the square - including for its view (see separate review) - but still an ok option which is cheaper. We enjoyed our penne ragu (only €8) and a bottle of excellent Piedmontese Barbera d'Asti...More
