This little restaurant is away from the main centre of Stresa by about 100m. It has an outside terrace and the establishment was full on the evening we visited. Booking seemed essential. It was staffed by ladies who worked brilliantly as a team, all looking...More

Don't be put off by the fact you walk through a car park to get to the front door! We peeked in on a Thursday evening about 11pm and it looked very nice and was still pretty busy, so we booked for 9pm Friday. On...More
