Al Sciucc is a small restaurant in Stropino, just above Stresa. Well-frequented by locals, it's better to make a reservation, especially on a Saturday evening. We happened to go on a Friday night when they had a themed evening featuring paella. We enjoyed appetizers of seafood salad and octopus and potato salad followed by two servings of paella all accompanied... More

What a treasure located across the street from our B&B! We called the place "Vera's" and went there two times for excellent dinners. The food was great, the atmosphere was cozy and charming and it was across the street!!! It doesn't get much better than that! There are usually 2 items being cooked each night and we were never disappointed!... More

We asked a local and this was there recommendation. Very glad we tried this place. The owner cooks and wife waits tables. Everything fresh, home made style cooking. I got the feeling that the menu changes with what is available fresh each day. The key sign for me is that this is a place the locals eat. We arrived early... More

This was a special dinner with friends who also know the owner. She usually only has a choice of two items for a primo, and 2 or 3 for a second course. I had fabulous spaetzle with zucchini speck and cream and then grilled toma with speck and rosti. Wonderful desserts too all homemade. This is a lovely little jewel... More

We ate here 4 nights out of our 3 week stay in Italy. All the food was good. Very reasonable cost. The owner/server was very helpful and friendly. Some English is spoken, but few Americans dine here. We felt very much at home in this casual spot-we even played cards! The owner greets you with that days specials and you... More

We stayed nearby at La casa del Giardiniere & David assuredly recommends this restaurant which truly lived up to his reviews. Vera does a great job and the food was first class at very reasonable prices.

This was our first visit in 2015, and as always the welcome, service and quality of the food was just as good as ever. We had a simple starter of Linguine con cipolle di Tropea, followed by a mouthwatering succulent costine al forno, and Tortino di cioccolato . Absolutely delicious, a big thank you to Vera and Sante for their... More

We had a very good dinner there, The restaurant does not look impressive, but the food is excellent for a very good price. If you are around Stresa looking for a "real" Italan restaurant at an affordable price, do not miss it (and book in advance, the place is often fully booked!)
