Amazing food, very attentive staff. If you can try to book a table in the rooftop with a amazing view on the lake. Really recommend this place

I've been there yesterday evening(28/05/16), I've not any special remarks but for sure it's not a pleasure to see the chef at the cash desk surfing on facebook during the service.. instead of taking care of his guests.. never happened with mr Mei, Berton, Sironi.. or others ..Cracco and Canavacciuolo too.. by the way the menu was amazing ( who's cooking ), dishes too.. the service could be improved for a one starred restaurant.
anyway I'll surely be back hoping that mr Tesse would take more attention to his guests.
favourite dishes were:
Fagottini di ricotta di "Seirass", zucchine marinate alla menta e colatura di pomodoro
but pay attention to dough..
Scamoncino di vitello cotto al sale grosso, salsa al miele, pepe di Sichuan e cipolline glassate
Zuppetta di fragole, miele e timo, crema gelata di latte

I'm sorry but Crispy egg was under expectation.. Cracco Docet

Set just off the main square off Orta San Guilio, is this tiny 6 tabled restaurant with 1 Michelin star.
We had forgotten to warn the chef that I am a vegetarian, with allergies, however from the very beginning he managed to create lovely dishes for me. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his dinner even though he stayed away from the classic French dishes of foie gras, frog’s legs and pigeon. The egg yolk in potato was a wonderful experience and absolutely delicious. There is only one waiter and sommelier/manageress and yet we had super service, (although a little more relaxed than what we had before at other Michelin restaurants) and sampled a lovely selection of Italian wines with our food pairing.
Our only complaint was that the brandy snap (not sure of the Italian equivalent) in my husband's dessert was very burnt.

The guide of our small tour group was a friend of the chef. As a result we had a special menu, perhaps not the norm. However, if it was an example of the food, the restaurant is worthy of its Michelin star. Given the opportunity, we would return to sample their menu.

We ate in the terrce restaurant which does a fixed price meal which is aboe the main michelin start restaurant. The food was very good but not fabulous and, for the 45 Euro price tag, better value can be had elsewhere. Tomato Bruschetta was lovely but as a whole course within a 45 Euro fixed price meal?
