It's probably over two years now since we ate here but we still talk about the food we had and even though it was very expensive we enjoyed every minute of it. Book in advance and give yourself a treat.

Cozy and romantic place in the center of Orta village. Wooden ceiling and few tables for a small warm restaurant. Very good quality food. Wide wine choice. Timorasso wine from producer Walter Massa highly recommended.

Wonderful tasting menu, topped off with the most refreshing tiramisu ever. Lot's of little extras - you will leave stuffed. Only con is the dining room itself. The plastic chairs and the lack of a/c are not on par with the food, which is a shame. You should not be on the verge of sweating for two hours while eating... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel and dined in their one star Michelin restaurant. We started in the courtyard and rain sent us all scurrying into the wine cave where we actually talked to other guests. We met a German and a Danish couple which enhanced our experience as we discussed the food and wine of the region, the EU... More

Wonderful food , amazing menu , very attentive staff and Sara the sommelier could not do enough to ensure a pleasant meal and evening. Would highly recommend this establishment , but you need to book as very popular with the Locals . Book at least 24 hours prior to arrival.

We wanted to try this Michelin star restaurant so went by to take a look and make a reservation. The sommelier was there to block our way and do her best to keep us out. When I asked if my wife and I could see the menu she refused saying it could be seen outside on the wall. Despite our... More

After passing the 'hole in the wall' entrance (that looked to be associated with the adjacent bank)--twice!, we walked up a staircase to find a beautiful oasis. Both decor and food are quite sophisticated. Our entrees are still vivid in my mind: lamb tenderloin with a licorice infused jus; perfectly prepared pigeon and Guinea fowl breast lightly confited and served... More
