The restaurant was crowded and we took that as a good sign but then this is high season in Orta. We waited for a long time at each step of the meal and they forgot to bring our antipasto. I didn't ask for it when out pasta arrived because by then we had waited an hour. The food was okay,... More

Was quite busy, so took this as a good sign. We sat for 20 minutes waiting for a menu. I eventually caught the waiter's eye and requested a menu, it took another 5 minutes to arrive. It appeared to me that they were more attentive to the locals. When the food arrived it was tasty, and quite good value for... More

This was followed by Filetto di Maiale in a wonderful gorgonzola sauce...delicious. I have to complement Franco, the owner for his excellent recommendation of vini, Davide for taking such great care of me...he was so attentative,... More

I had a chicken stew, my wife a mushroom pasta, both very tasty. In fact hers was better than we had the following night in a more upmarket restaurant on the main street. (The pasta al dente and the sauce more subtle0 The atmosphere was very friendly - family run with a lot of locals - we all ended up... More

Seeing mixed reviews makes me think this place is a little erratic in its service. Our experience was fine, really surprised the restaurant was as quiet as it was (us and 3 other couples). The reality check is this is a family restaurant, and so expect 'home cooked' rather than 'haute-cuisine' - but in a village where the touristy restaurants... More

Not worth wasting words on. Crap meal. We had pasta alla carbonara. Anyone that knows about this simple dish would tell you that the egg sauce shouldn't be scrambled eggs. Bacon shouldn't be undercooked fat. Parmesan shouldn't be tasteless cheese from a plastic bag. Everything about it was disgusting.

We went there yesterday to stay for a while in Orta... and later decided to eat somewhere around the lake... we were attracted by this nice restaurant immersed in green trees and... edera! You eat nicely.... and feel surrounded by ancient atmosphere and nature... in old suburbs breathing an ancient air... the place is well organised... the food is good... More

We tried this place once during our stay in Orta but were rather underwhelmed - the food was OK but not as good as other places, the location has no view, and yet it was more expensive: we felt it had pretensions beyond its capabilities.
