Recommended by the hotel staff and they couldn't have done better. Set in nice location on a small piazza, I sat outside under a covered terrace. Bread and salami was offered, which was tasty. I went for the tagliata piedmontaise con rucola - slices of perfectly cooked steak on a bed of rocket. the steak was seared, but at the... More

They have a lovely terrace, and the gnocchi was incredible. We spent more than a week in Italy, and this was undoubtedly our best meal. I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars, because I didn't like the dessert (the panna cotta), but everything else was great!

you'll have to look for this Piazza, but the restaurant is worth it! Situated in the historic centre of Intra, this place offers a nice terrace and a cosy interior. Fantastic winelist and great dishes; Try the Vitello tonnato and the Tuna fish salad for instance. Closes at 14.30 for lunch. Reopens for dinner.

We tucked into this cozy restaurant close to lunch time because of a sudden rain shower. The idea was to enjoy a quick glass of wine until the storm blew over. We ended up staying for lunch and we're sure glad we did! We enjoyed a tasty assortment of 'salumi', fresh pasta with artichokes, perfectly-prepared 'tagliata' and a luscious tiramisu.... More

Lovely restaurant comes to life in the evening once all the lights are on. Service was good as as all the menu was in Italian we had a lovely waiter explain some of the meals. Wine was exceptional and price wise average for Italy. Defiantly recommend a visit

We had difficulty to read the "Italian only" menu, but a very friendly Moroccan waiter was fortunately on duty to do some translations for us as we may have ended up ordering a wash-mashine.... Anyway my wife had a piece of fish and I had the potato/leek ravioli in a very strange and thickish brown asparagus sauce after finishing of... More

We have to wait 1h30 min for our main course. Not bad in quality terms but there are much better in the area. I Do Not recommend at all!

Fantastic location, service wonderful. House wine excellent. Vegetable soup to die for and a tiramisu that melted in the mouth. A little secret in this corner of Maggiore. Yum, yum.
