Description: The Restaurant "Cardini" is located in Someraro, on the hills of Stresa, and overlooks the Lake Maggiore with a charming view on the Borromeo Isles and the surrounding mountains. The restaurant has a large dining room with 70/80 seats and a terrace where the view is the perfect backdrop for relaxation, tasting our local products and enjoy our homemade cakes. At 80 meters from the restaurant there is a road leading to Mottarone and from there to Lake Orta, places of great tourist interest. Not far you can find as well hiking and biking trails to reach the top of this mountain and stop to visit the Alpinia botanical garden.We look forward to seeing you!

Cardini is an excellent restaurant. The location with wonderful views across Lake Maggiore, the relaxed atmosphere, the high quality local food & wine and the very pleasant, attentive service make this a truly perfect venue for dinner or lunch. we returned more than once and will definitely recommend it to friends.

This family run restaurant is run by a husband and wife who seriously care about making the dining experience very personalized. There is a varied menu with fresh fish from the lake, house made pastas, veal, and something for every taste. The view over looking the Borromeo islands is lovely and the quality of the food is excellent. If you are in Baveno and looking for a beautiful (although uphill) walk, it takes about 30-35 minutes. It is well worth the trip. We can't wait to go back in May when we are back in Italy!

Tough to navigate your way there however is well worth the effort. Sitting high above Lago Maggiore in the village of Someraro it has awesome vistas from both the dining room and patio. The menu is fine dining but the pricing is incredibly reasonable to the point of being underpriced. The veal scallopine in a white wine mushroom sauce and risotto carcioffi, all locally sourced were phenomenal. The wine list was filled with local and regional wines priced very reasonably. Patricia, our hostess (maybe the owner) was as gracious and warm as to be a long lost friend. This si truly a hidden gem.

We stayed in Casa Bellavista just down the road from the restaurant so we went there for breakfast and supper several times. The owners are so nice and friendly. The view of the lake from the outside terrace and from inside the restaurant were beautiful. The owners speak English very well. The food was delicious. You must eat here if you are in the area.
