Sadly, we did not try this lakeside restaurant until our last day in Pella. If we'd tried their delicious savory crepes (stuffed with very thin bacon, cheese and green handfuls of rocket/arugula) earlier, we would have lunched their frequently during our week on Lake Orta. We could not resist the ice cream for dessert...it was the smoothest, silkiest chocolate we... More

Simply a lovely little place either for the gelato or cappucino or, if you want lunch, the crepes. Much quieter than the bigger restaurants, and the staff is very friendly. Just south of the dock, past the large restaurant/bar. If you are staying in Orta, it's worth the 10 minute boat ride

This is honestly the best Ice-cream place I know. It's all home-made and lovingly served. My favourite is the coffee and that wasn't available on our first visit this year. But when I said I had travelled from London for the coffee ice-cream, there was much sympathy though no promises. I left my phone number and a deadline and, blow... More

Dropped in to this restaurant late in the afternoon and had delicious crepes. Staff were very pleasant and offered, without us asking, maps of the area in English with suggestions for a walking tour. An absolute gem!

Beautiful view on the lake very good ice cream but the crepe are the best. It can be very crowded on the weekends. But during weekdays you can enjoy a relaxing ice cream break.

We visited the Torre a few times during our week in Pella - returning mainly for the amazingly delicious gelati. Violet gelato is a speciality, and unlike anything I've eaten before - delicious! The crepes were also exceptional. Highly recommended if you are visiting Lago d'Orta.

Nice small place in an ancient stone tower. Great view if the lake and Isola, delicious ice cream and crepes. Very friendly service. Worth the visit to Pella

I had a delicious ice cream here: macaron and viola. Nevet tasted them before. While you eat your 'cono' you can watch the lake. Nice!

Home made Italian ice cream with a few pluses. This is a small ice cream parlour just on the edge of the romantic Lake Orta. The choice of favours to choose from is varied and the service at the counter is fast. The ice cream itself is wonderful, sweet, cool with a deep flavour but it is the combination of... More
