This place has a limited menu. The prices were very modest. But cooked food was only OK. The lasagna was good, the polenta so-so. Green salad was good. Many couples with children. You could do better.

The pizza was soggy. Spaghetti arrabiata was over cooked, well passed al dente. Salad was not clean, with some sand on the bottom. Service was the worst in Stresa. It was under stuffed. You have to try to get the attention of the running waitress for a long time. At the end of this bizarre experience, we were charged for... More

We returned for lunch and similarly we were welcomed by a friendly waitress, shown to a table and immediately given menus. We ordered tagliatelle, one with perch and the other with mushroom and they were served promptly and the food quality and presentation was superb and at a €9.50 each, great value.

Situated on the square, this was an easy restaurant to find and to enjoy. We went on a chilly evening and sat outside. In addition to heaters they had blankets,for everyone in case of a chill. They had a specials menu filled with polenta and pasta in addition to a rather extensive menu. We enjoyed our meal and it's reasonable... More
