Really nice restaurant with a great lake view and super super friendly staff! Great Italian cuisine - not sure when I had such a great pasta last time. It was a bit random how we found this place when going for a dinner but we were super happy! It's a bit lost in the middle of nowhere, you need to drive there. For sure coming back to eat there if I come back to Lago di Orta!

A absolute 10 score for location, unfortunately due to the rain we had to sit inside. Food was good. Despite there was a big group before us, we got our food in a timely manner!

We found this very special restaurant more accidentially. Together with our children we had a wonderful dinner there and enjoyed the view over the lake a lot. Everybody - even our picky children - found a menue he/she liked. The service was friendly and fast and very charming about our strange italian language skills. The menue ist a good mixture of fish and general italian specialties.

Literally stumbled across this fantastic little gem of a restaurant, purely by chance...

It has amazing views over the lake to the very pretty, but always very busy Orta San Giulio and is well worth the 20 mins or so drive, even if that gets a little hairy towards the end!

The menu is limited to what is fresh that day and because the staff's English was as good as our Italian, what we had ordered was a complete mystery (and with 2 vegans in the party, it could've been a disaster!).

However, we needn't have worried because the food was amazing - simple, rustic even, but the sesame encrusted tuna in particular and the pasta sauces in general, were some of the best we had tasted during our entire trip (and the recommended wine wasn't too shabby either)!

Great location directly at the lake side. But unfortunatly the worst food and service I every had in Italy in the last 30 years. Maybe they only had a bad day...
