Very busy and popular pizzeria... Even on a very wet and windy night in November, this place was packed hence my advice to arrive early ~7pm (which is late if your English dinners).
Plenty of selections of pizza and pretty good w/o a strong tomato sauce that can sometimes ruin a pizza and their cappuccinos were up to par!
I learnt the Italian word 'Rocket' ~> lettuce as one of the popular toppings for pizzas; although I need to learn Italian word for the 'check'... but they understood "l'addition". :)

Ate dinner at Aldo's while in Arona on business. Excellent food, and nice location right on the city square, next to beautiful Lake Maggiore. Full of local people, so you know the quality is good.

So many great dishes but not enough time to try them. It is also highly rated by the locals in Arona, and rightfully so!

One of the girls at the Hotel suggested we try this place. We parked near the station, and walked , and walked , and walked [was't that far really], we asked a couple of times, and then saw it on the left. We were given a table outside, and asked for a Seafood dish, followed by a Pizza, to share. The kitchen was closed, but they said they would do it anyway. So in a few minutes the Seafood came, fried, nice, and before we had time to blink, we got the Pizza, both were very good. Definitely worth going back.

We dined here last night after booking a table earlier in the day. Our table was good and service as well. We ordered the Cockerel with rosemary and potatoes, buttered spinach and fresh salad. A bottle of house red completed our meal. We both enjoyed our meal very nice flavours, not over cooked and salad very fresh. Our wine was brought to the table while we waited for our main course. A minute or so later we were provided. with a basket of bread, bread sticks and what seemed like small pieces of very plain pizza. Nice to enjoy while our meal was being prepared.
We had an approximate idea of what our meal would cost. However when the bill arrived it seemed quite high. We found we had been charged 3 euro for the bread which we did not order and would have refused. Also there was a 4 euro charge for copature. We let this go. When I checked to see what copature is I found out is is virtually a charge for table linen and cutlery. Strange as we are in a restaurant! We have been travelling for 10 weeks in 9 different countries and this is the first copature charge we have come across. It may be only 7 euro extra but for that price an excellent pizza can be had from one of the pizzerias in town.
