I am not going to repeat all the comments about the chef except to say that he spent so much time "front of house" he couldn't possibly have done any real chef stuff (i.e.cooking). Great food though - so well done to whoever did cook. Staff very attentive and a good time was had by all.

After having heard previous stories about the owner we were withering whether to visit Settimo Cielo or not. Fortunately for us there were various Italian Families in at the same time so they kept him for the majority of the night. The food is good and the view is stunning. The waitors spoke little English and us little Italian but... More

The previous reviewer rightly commends the food here, and the stunning position high above Stresa. However, he is too harsh about the chef. We were offered complementary aperitifs and digestifs both of which were really enjoyable. We were told in detail about the dishes we selected, their history and how they were prepared. We understand that the owner (Pino) would... More

Let me first say that the food in this restaurant is AMAZING! I have so far spent 8 days in Stresa on Lake Maggiore eating out twice a day and nothing has compared to the quality and taste of the food at Settimo Cielo. Not to mention the STUNNING view of the lake that you're met with as soon as... More

Nice restaurant with great service and amazing view. The chef is really lovely, he explains the dish and why the food is prepared the way they do, etc. DOP. Good food.

The owner/chef loves his food and loves to share what he considers the best dishes. Highly recommend the fish tasting menu and the meat tasting menu - all fabulous dishes made by the chef.

I booked a table in the morning for the same evening. They reserved us the best one in the veranda with a breathtaking view over Maggiore Lake and his Borromean Islands! Menú is very attractive with all his typical and traditional Italian food also with good choices for vegetarians! Quantity and quality are excellent and we very pleased the courtesy... More

We arrived as a group of 14, and had a lovely meal. Our dietary requirements (2 veggies and an aversion to cheese) were accommodated brilliantly, and the gnocchi and dessert trolley were amazing!

Restaurant of absolute high level. The chef Pino is a great cook, from her kitchen dishes out exceptional. And like all Italians is a great orator! :) The restaurant overlooking the Borromeo Gulf and thus enjoys an incomparable view! Highly recommended!

Beautiful view from on top of the hill - funny chef who cooks tableside and great food. We took a group of 30 there three weeks in a row and it was great. They all loved it.
