In the Italian part of the Lake, the small town of Arona is by far the nicest place to visit and if you go there, you must visit the "Taverna del Pittore"! The view over the lake is really nice and food and service is of very high quality. I've been there some years ago and I can say, that... More

The Chef is excellent with many creative dishes using fresh local ingredients. Most hospitable, excellent service, in a beautiful environment.

We had a fine dinner here by chance recently outside in the piazza. It was a very busy evening and the service was a little slow to start but once things were underway, all was fine. The food was properly cooked and well presented. I had a risotto with fresh porcini and another smaller mushroom which was excellent. All four... More

Good food, but let down by dismal service!! They even forgot to bring the wine, and blamed lack of staff!!!! When the lights are switched on.... You get attacked by insects!!!

The best meal I have ever had in Italy. Thank you for the perfect food, wine and service. Grazie. Shrimps as a starter, grilled salmon and creme brulee was just perfect. Thank you for the wonderful service as well, such a warm and kind attitude.

Had dinner here on the balcony overlooking the lake. Beautiful. Waiters were extremely nice and helpful, service was impeccable. We ate appetizers, starters and main courses. Delicious scallops, meat ravioli also great, sea bass, raw shrimp & fish. Deserts were also delicious. We'd come here again!

We went to Taverna del Pittore in 14 people as a part of a broader culinary week end started in Alba. They came well recommended and lived up to the expectations. The chef prepared for us a tasting menu made up of 9 courses. Every single dish was a little work of art. I am personally quite picky with food... More
