We ate here twice during our week in Pella on beautiful Lake Orta. Right on the waterfront, it is perfectly placed for taking one of the ferries that crosses to the island or to the town of Orta San Giulio on the other side. On our arrival evening, we had spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams) which was absolutely delicious. Even though it was listed as a first course on the menu, we had it as our main dish and it was generously sized. We came back with a friend a few days later for lunch and had pizza, lavishly extending beyond the plate, with big chunks of artichoke decorating the delectable slices of ham. I never thought I'd be able to finish it but it was too good to leave any. As at all the restaurants we went to, there was a two euro cover charge, so big tips are not necessary. The large outdoor terrace, nice service, and delicious food made this restaurant a very pleasant surprise.

We tried this little restaurant on the banks of Lago D'Orta. The food was good and, as it was off season, we were the only people in the establishment. The dishes were delicious and reasonable.

We stopped off for lunch here on our way up to Madonna del Sasso. The outdoor area was completely full with happy diners, so we had to eat inside the restaurant, next to the window. As we sat down the aroma from fellow diners' fritto misto was so inviting that I just had to choose it for my main course, too! And my husband chose a variation of it as well. We were very happy to have done so. I noticed that a lot of diners were enjoying their pizza too. The atmosphere was perfect, the food was very well presented and delicious.

Great view of the beautiful Lake Orta as a background for very good meals.

La Piazzetta is a medium sized restaurant with a good choice typically Italian menu. The food is very good and the service is relatively fast. The "Misto fritto gigante" which is a LARGE fry-up of various seafood and vegetables is a, must try. Prices are very reasonable.

If you are in Pella or nearby this is the place to be for a relaxing evening meal by the lake.

Enjoy!

On the Lake but very basic. Prices are okay and they have good coffee. The Pizza is basic but satisfies if you are hungry. The house red wine is sour tasting but at 6€ for a half jug it is hard to expect more.
