It was a recommendation of our host from B&B Lavanda e Rosmarino (please find in separate review) and in fact it was the best restaurant we've had during our stay at Lago d'Orta.

It looks very normal from outside but entering the house you will be lead into a very nice restaurant. The menu is either written on a blackboard or on a paper note but always handwritten because there are only a handful of choices within you can choose. But to be honest this is a sign for a good restaurant. The first evening we had a very delicious Risotto and the next day we had Tortellini and noodles.It was absolutely amazing and if you only order one main gear you pay round about 25 EUR incl 1 bottle of water and 1/2 l of vino della casa (4€) and either an antipasti (7 €) or a prosecco (2,50) and Aperol Spritz (3,50 €). Such a good quality for a price which is just gorgeous.

Highly recommended and easy reachable by car from Orta (10 mins) and other towns.

We got there very late by chance - almost 22h. They were welcoming and helping even if we don’t speak Italian. This was a great good surprise: very tasty, very perfumed and very good prices. The day after the whole family decided to get back there for dinner. The menu was different. The pleasure of fresh tasty meals is definitely there, with the kindness of these people. Don’t miss this restaurant if you pass by.

After reading the different reviews, thought we must give this place a go. It’s true, the outside of the building is nothing special but the restaurant inside is beautifully decorated. Staff were very friendly and very patient with our limited Italian. The menu of the day was read to us and we also had no idea on the price! However, the 3 course meal was lovely and very tasty and the price was good value (approx 25 euros per person including drinks), would definitely recommend.
