Description: 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.

An absolutely fantastic place. Caterina and her husband and their managing son Ezio are among the best hosts we have ever met - and we travel extensively. First - Lake Orta is just phenomenal. It is clean and pure and gorgeous - as is the entire area. Totally relaxing.

Second, Giardinetto was clean, and comfortable, and the restaurant was excellent - in an area that was loaded with great cuisine, we ate at Giardinetto three times! and it was excellent every time. The staff at this hotel really are just superb - friendly, helpful, always smiling - always there when you need them and not there when you are relaxing.

Mostly, Giardinetto is one of those rare places that have that ability to make you feel like you are entirely welcome, and that it is their pleasure to have you there, and somehow you feel as though you are among your family...or they somehow make you feel part of theirs.

Finally - this place is entirely special...if you get the opportunity to visit here - don't pass it up. You will be VERY pleased that you went.

We have just returned from a fantastic relaxing holiday from hotel giardinetto. We were on half board and twice we ate a la carte as a special treat.
All the food was delicious and the waiters were very helpful and explained what everything was and how it was made. I think we all put on a stone each but well worth it, would recommend the restaurant ambience and food - we will definitely be returning

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary, and sitting in the same hotel we were staying was obvious, the menu is very nice and food is excellent, we could not have all what was there....but, we certainly enjoyed every item we asked.....great place, they deserve a Michelin star, ....great experience.
