It is a absolutely wonderful place. Our favourite is the room with the birds on the ceiling and the view over the lake. Now the food: it is outstanding with ingredients of quality and special regional dishes, great wine list too. In the evening there...More

If you are the only restaurant on an island, then I guess customers will come easily, but I found this place to be unwelcoming, and in fact rude.

We sat on the terrace and it was a great view. The food was okay but not noteworthy. This is the only food choice on the island, and we are glad we stopped here for lunch. The chicken salad was good as was the bean...More

A great place for lunch when on the island. We had great service and enjoyed caprese salad and cantaloupe with ham. Take a break when on the island. Great view back to the mainland while you are there.

Charming restaurant overlooking the water on the Isola d'Orta - the only place to eat on the island. There are either formal dining rooms overlooking the water or the nicer I thought shady downstairs terrace. Dinner is complicated as it involves getting a ferry there...More
