We enjoyed a very tasty 'bar snack type' meal here overlooking the lovely Lake Maggiore. Watching the trout and ducks below was a bonus. Our meal was served promptly by a friendly and professional waitress. Good value for the money too. Worth a visit if looking to eat in the area.

Stopped for a quick lunch having just been up the cable car. The waitresses were very efficient. Ordered pasta, mixed salad and a sandwich, all were served within 10-15 mins. The Mediterranean Pasta was a simple mix of pasta with courgette, tomato and basil. The salad had a good mix of vegetables. Fitted the bill of a quick, simple lunch... More

This lovely Restaurant is right over the water a short walk around the lake from the La Palma Hotel. Right next to the cable car entry. Our lunch was fresh tomatoes with Mozzarella served with the best complimentary bread ( so fresh) ! Try the non alcoholic Aperitvo!

We found this place, while looking for the entrance to the Mottarone cable car. The cafe is right next to the lake, with amazing views of Isola Bella (well worth a visit). We ordered a salad and a flat bread which were really nice and tasty. The place was very busy, with a couple of reserved tables - so some... More

We happened across this place whilst walking around the lake. Wonderful views from the balcony and very relaxing meal. Staff were very friendly and the food was lovely.

What a find! We were staying nearby and couldn't be bothered to walk into town to join the tourist crush. Strolled down to the waterside and found this great little cafe/bar, full of locals, all knowingly chowing down on a small but quality menu of pastas, grills and salads. Everything we ate over two dinner visits was tasty and fresh... More

We returned after 6 years to one of our favorite restaurants and were again blown away by the amazing views from the restaurant. The restaurant sits on the lake front at Carciano and due to the fact that its in Carciano rather than Stresa is much quieter than restaurants within Stresa. However you would struggle to get a better view,... More

Go here for drinks and enjoy the view to the Islands and the lake in general. Don't go here to eat. The food is at best mediocre. But the view makes this place worth a visit!
