Very nice restaurant with authentic Italian cuisine with lots of local flavors and family tradition. The place is hectic to get to, but it's worth visiting. There is nice terrace with stunning lake view.

We visited Il Cardini on our first night in Someraro and loved it so much we returned on our last. The food was great and the hosts, Patricia & Lorenzo, could not have been more welcoming. We would love to return!

The Restaurant "Cardini" is located in Someraro, on the hills of Stresa, and overlooks the Lake Maggiore with a charming view on the Borromeo Isles and the surrounding mountains. The restaurant has a large dining room with 70/80 seats and a terrace where the view is the perfect backdrop for relaxation, tasting our local products and enjoy our homemade cakes. At 80 meters from the restaurant there is a road leading to Mottarone and from there to Lake Orta, places of great tourist interest. Not far you can find as well hiking and biking trails to reach the top of this mountain and stop to visit the Alpinia botanical garden.We look forward to seeing you!
