We were a group of 4 adults and 2 kids and the friendly, helpful staff found us the best table by the lake and plied us with excellent food at very reasonable prices. This wonderful old restaurant by the lake gives you a central spot in this lovely medieval town. We enjoyed the fresh picked forest mushroom pasta, it was absolutely delicious.

I have visited Leon D’Oro which is next door many times and planned to revisit however on arrival the restaurant was empty and Venus was full and buzzing which attracted me to ask for a table. The service was quick and friendly and the dish of the day of fungi con tagliatelle was superb. I will go again.

Great place for morning café and croissant, when the town is still quiet. Wonderful views of the ducks, Lake Orta, Piazza Motta, the fishing boats and the ferries.

THE place to eat, watch the ferries, and enjoy this wonderful village. Great service, pizza and wine list featuring a full range of the local wines. Some of the best views in the Lake District--and that's saying a lot.
Choose outside sitting or the upscale restaurant inside, also on the lake.
Caveat: You can only order off the gourmet menu if you eat inside.

We ordered an 18 euro bottle of wine. The waiter told us it was out of stock but brought an alternative bottle. When we came to pay the bill, the wine he brought as an alternative was 48 euro. The food was also disappointing. Cold potato served with steak. Chipped crockery. Would not go again.
