We had lunch at Villa Crespi. What an amazing experience. The food is imaginative and exciting. The deserts are incredible and topped off a true culinary experience. I have to make a special mention of the service, which is immaculate, and the fake egg!

From the welcome through every course and bite, both the food and service absolutely lived up to Michelin's 2 stars. In our opinion, the few things keeping this outstanding restaurant from a third star...the dessert straw should have been edible, more elegant cutlery for the...More

There is a outside patio which is connected to the restaurant which may allow pets. Ultimately it will be up to Chef Cannavacciuolo.

"Our passion for hospitality and restaurants have led us to treat this fascinating work with the love, respect and respect it so greatly deserves. Our innovative Mediterranean cuisine is distinctive and we love to pamper our guests in the romantic rooms overlooking the lake where staff and surroundings reflect genuine harmony."

Antonino works on his cuisine every day of his life, drawing inspiration from life itself. His dishes also reflect and epitomise his journey northwards from the Sorrento coast to his wife, Cinzia, a native of Orta which is now his home.

These are the secrets of our two Michelin starred restaurant.
