The food at Venus was good and fairly inexpensive given the fantastic location on the side of the lake overlooking the island. Very romantic setting and one not to miss when in Orta

Simple Italian food, tasty, good value given the location. It is on the main square at the water front with great views of the Island. The mushroom pasta was excellent, and the pizza too.
