    So glad to have found a new restaurant in our area. The food was excellent and the staff were very nice. Their attention to detail was outstanding. Will certainly go back.

    Excellent food. An interesting twist on traditional Italian dishes. Menu on an app was not easy to follow. Extensive wine list. Doors to kitchen make too much noise as staff crash through.

    Terrible service. Average food. We wrote a detailed story in Google maps. Service was rude. We waited more than 1 hour for our food. Really bad experience. Worst in Stresa

    Good quality dishes, polite service and nice atmosphere. Worth trying the fish plates as well as the stuffed ravioli. We will be back.

    After all the great reviews I expected the food to be stellar but unfortunately it was pretty mediocre. The pumpkin ravioli was just ok, a bit bland and the swordfish came across as a bit dry and flavorless. The lake fish dish came with one shrimp and was simply ho hum. They excelled with the deserts, pistachio chocolate concoction and the crepe brûlée was fine. I am so accustomed to excellent Italian food but this unfortunately disappointed. The service was a bit slow, which could be overlooked if the food was stellar, but in this case it was not. Generally trip advisor reviews are a bit more accurate but not in this case.

    This small restaurant does very good food. There are only a few tables inside the rest are in the street so do book for an inside table. The atmosphere and service are better inside. They have a good fresh fish selection . They use local in season ingredients . The wine list is comprehensive . We had a good meal and a good time.

    Lo Stornello was a really welcoming and enjoyable restaurant to visit. The food quality and value were excellent. We can really recommend the quality of the beef.

    Food was nice. Would recommend it. However, service appeared to be not prompt and pretty disorganized: no bread basket until repeated reminder., wine arrived when we almost finished our meat (which was good). Overall Impression mixed.

    Warm welcome and creative choices. Serious kitchen unlike many of the tourist traps in center city Stresa. Went following concert at 10 PM and the restaurant full of locals.
