It was really good. The chef has great style and savoir-faire. Chapeau !
My wife asked for some chilly oil to add to the fish carbonara pasta.
I expected the chef to be offended, instead he sent us a wonderful mix of extra virgin oil,
red chilly, green chilly and basil that matched the pasta perfectly.
We suggest they add this option to their menu :-)

A foodie destination on this charming little isle. Chef Angelo is a master and he offers an upscale, tasteful dining experience for the sophisticated palate. The centerpiece is several fresh lake fish (perch, trout and lavarello) perfectly prepared. Menu has creative twists on classics like carbonara with fresh homemade tagliatelle and a hybrid salmon-trout in a delicate butter sauce. Exquisite. Save room for classic Sicilian dessert prepared by a master, like cannoli and cassata better than you’ll find in Sicily! Outstanding meal. Attentive wait staff. Charming setting. Come if you can.

Excellent food. Started with fish carpaccio - tuna and prawns - the prawn carpaccio was excellent. Main course of salt-baked turbot was first class - beautifully cooked and presented with a light citrus sauce. Service was attentive. Ambiance a little disappointing being in an enclosed courtyard and two adjacent tables both smoking. Go here for the food though, it really is excellent.

A truly memorable meal. The ravioli filled with fish from Lago Maggiore, steps away from the restaurant, was unusual and good. It tasted like the best kind of local dish, unavailable elsewhere. The greeting from Eric was great, the service impeccable. Would go back in a heartbeat.

the place is amazing and the service is great! We were a company of 16 people, so the restaurant send a boat for us — and when we asked to pick us up from the place which was the most convenient to us and there was no problem. Everyone was very nice to us and food was unbelievably tasty.
And the place is great — other places on the island seem to me quite touristic, but this one, hidden in the streets, is really cozy and nice with great food and service.

Excellent meal of local fish dishes, prepared and served by friendly but relaxed staff.
Complimentary boat service to and from Stresa was very efficient and made for a very special evening.
