We had to check twice the adress, but finally found it. Hidden in the old heart of Pettenasco. A friendly welcome of the owner and a good looking interior with classic elements. The menu showed a nice pallet. We had as starter an excellent carpaccio of smoked goose. A real surprise. On the contrary was the duck breast a bit dry and not so surprising. The deserts gave us back the positive mood we got from our first course.

This restaurant is a bit remote and off the main road, but certainly worth a visit! A very professional and accurate staff (English spoken) helps you through the delicious menu. After a beautifull plate with all kinds of Italian starters, we had the duckbreast and the rabbit as main dishes. Perfect portions, very delicious side dishes and sauces. Accompanied by very tasty wines. A perfect dinner.

A big and rude noisy group of people really disturbed our diner as they didn’t care about the others, smoking in the lovely patio... too bad....

Wonderful local osteria in Pettenasco. Elena speaks English, is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu and actually assists the chef with some of the food preparation. Small but varied menu of local dishes. Great antipasto sampler, bagna cauda and pasta. Courses progressed at a relaxing pace, food cooked to order. Good wine list.

We looked for a restaurant to try during our stay on Lake Orta and turned up on a Saturday night without a booking. They were full so we booked for the next night. We were so glad we did. The menu was small but exciting and both our starters were lovely. Bruschetta and Prosseco were presented whilst we chose our food and both were delicious also. We both had duck. It was cooked just as we liked it and was melt in the mouth. The wine list was large and all reasonably priced and the recommendation given to us was just perfect. The restaurant is small, intimate and perfectly formed. The staff lovely even though our Italian is limited. Can you tell we loved it? We really did. Go out of your way to go here!
