Nice wine bar, family owned. In a good location for people watching. Small with a tiny outside area but it is a really nice place for a glass of something cold when the sun shines.

Spent 3 nights on the run here. I wasn't "on the run" but I think you know what I mean. Lovely little wine bar with a fabulous selection of Italian wines. Great friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. The wines were all reasonably priced but I have to say the food was a little over-priced. Would go back in a heart-beat.

We visited Al Buscion several times during our week stay in Stresa in July. The food and drink are amazing, there is a good atmosphere, the owner was very friendly. We also walked past Al Buscion on our wedding day on our route back to our hotel just after getting married in Stresa and were greeted with a glass of... More

Great little wine bar, a fun spot that serves wonderful wines by the glass. Franciacorta is my favorite. Massimo and the staff are a pleasure to get to know. Congrats on your new son, he's a delight.

A very relaxed and friendly bar in the centre of the old town, the mixed platters of food are very nice and good value for money. The staff are very pleasant and do speak good English. A wide range of local wines are stocked and the owner is very happy to recommend one.
