Service unfriendly and poor. Bread was stale. Fish tasted off. Out of our party of 5, 3 spent the next 24 hours suffering from nasty stomach condition. I recommend avoiding this restaurant.

Terrible service: waited over 1 hr for starters; waiter argued that the old and stale bread had been freshly baked. Waiters were abrupt and impersonal. Food: shrimps looked and tasted "off". Salmon was undercooked. I recommend avoiding this restaurant!

During a one week stay in Stresa we had the opportunity to try a number of restaurants and no doubt the Lastresa was by far the best. The food is excellent, we had tuna tatar and smoked salmon as appetizers and rack of lamb as...More
