It's probably over two years now since we ate here but we still talk about the food we had and even though it was very expensive we enjoyed every minute of it. Book in advance and give yourself a treat.

Cozy and romantic place in the center of Orta village. Wooden ceiling and few tables for a small warm restaurant. Very good quality food. Wide wine choice. Timorasso wine from producer Walter Massa highly recommended.
