Wonderful local osteria in Pettenasco. Elena speaks English, is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu and actually assists the chef with some of the food preparation. Small but varied menu of local dishes. Great antipasto sampler, bagna cauda and pasta. Courses progressed at a relaxing...More

A gem in a small village above lake Orta. Small family run but the food and service where fabulous. Not a large menu but sufficient for all needs. Will definitely visit again

A pearl by lake Orta. I bit distant from the village, definitely not a generic "tourist" place, very nice service, excellent food, and extremely romantic environment. Based on our experience, the best place around Pettenasco.
