With friends my wife and I dined at this restaurant last week during a short stay in Stresa. Our table on the terrace was ideal for people watching, the menu was extensive and of good quality, all washed down with a local red recommended by our waiter. We tried to go back two days later but it was unfortunately closed. What a shame!
To be recommended.

We loved this restaurant due to its eclectic menu ranging from rack of lamb to fish and pasta. Both times we visited, the service was excellent, local wines were wonderful, and the outdoor seating perfect for people-watching. Try the black linguini with shrimp, rack of lamb, or the mixed seafood plate...oh, and the warm octopus appetizer was scrumptious!

Arriving in Stresa I looked on TripAdvisor and made a list of the most popular restaurants, this was one of them and the first we came across walking from our hotel. We were so happy with our first meal we booked immediately for the following night. The first occasion we had a table inside (with air conditioning), the second outside on the narrow street terrace. The bread was the best we experienced on our trip. We couldn't find a starter that took our fancy, although we usually only manage a main and dessert. We had different main courses each night, but the menu is a bit limited so we might have struggled if we had gone back again. The food was really enjoyable, nicely cooked, presented and tasty. The service was excellent. We had a couple of desserts which were lovely. Good wine list (including some half bottles). Very satisfied and at a reasonable price.

We looked for a restaurant for dinner, after four nights in Stresa. We found La Seresa. A narrow side street. The service and the food were pretty good. We ordered fish. The fish are well grilled. Prices are suggested to the area.

Two of us sat on the veranda of this restaurant and enjoyed the good friendly service,and good selection of wines by the glass
We noticed many people stop and look at the simple and somewhat uninspiring menu and then go on elsewhere
On our experience they made the right decision!
The tuna tartare appetiser was large but lacked seasoning ,additional ingredients and texture although 3 small side sauces helped somewhat
The pastas were more successful but still lacked flavour
The mixed seafood grill was very large on the plate and while each fish was cooked , ok , they lacked again seasoning sauce and flavour
The sweet and sour tempura fish was poor
As a result we went elsewhere for desert
A pity because with a little more finesse this simple food could have been much better
