Recommended to us by the owners of our accommodation. The restaurant has fantastic views of the lake and many of the diners were clearly residents in the hotel. The ambiance is quite formal, and the large number of staff a little over-attentive at times. That...More

Beautiful terrace with spectacular view on the Lago Orta. Food is good. We appreciated the very nice assortment of cheese and the excellent wine list.

Location is superb, closer to the lake having dinner you can't get. Wine card is containing full choice of superb wines. Dining is a pleasure. Not only because of the choice, but also because of the possibility to ask dishes not presented on the menu....More

The restaurant, with its fine indoor and outdoor terraces directly overlooking the lake, is known for its regional and creative cuisine, its well-stocked cellar with over 450 labels and the friendly professional courtesy of the young well qualified staff. In summer the gazebo and tables outside, cleverly decorated with flowers and candles make for a cosy romantic atmosphere, special moments where style and taste are a byword. Our philosophy is to be found in our quest for the finest raw materials, their transformation with absolute respect for its essence and integrity, following the finest of Piedmontese traditions while introducing at the same time our characteristic creativity.
