“Amazing location, decent food, appaling service”
Reviewed 14 October 2011

We were here with a large group, but due to space restrictions we were in a different part. The staff where very cold and unfriendly, and complained that our friends had ordered so much pizza that it would take over an hour for ours to come. IN fairness it was only about 20 minutes, but while we were consistently ignored other tables (locals I believe) received much warmer service.

Stunning location and the food was good, it's a terrible pity about the staff

“The restaurant with the best view”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

This lovely restaurant has tables in the square overlooking Lake Orta and the beautiful Isola San Guilio, so it's a lovely spot to linger, especially in the evening when the lights start to come on. The staff are great: I was part of the Poetry on the Lake Festival, which meant that there were often 8 or more of us eating together. The staff thought nothing of putting tables together, taking orders at different times, splitting bills and other complicated things. And the food was good: I usually had just one course, pasta, or salad - but all were excellent. In particular, they have a range of large and unusual salads, but the menu was generally imaginative. By Orta standards it was reasonably priced.

“Out of this world , the view , the food and the service !!!!!”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

Everything on the menu is excellent. Order the Zabaglione for dessert, now! The ambience and the food were complemented by superb service from the charming Maura. We will return as soon as possible.

Reviewed 5 September 2011

Just nextbdoor to the famous impolite Leon D'oro,s waiter; Venus welcome us with open arm, took us a nice table. Marco was superp with his politeness, taking time to explain the menu. Service was prompt and cuurteous. A wonderful experience highly recommended.
