    This was a lovely experience from start to finish. The staff very friendly & welcoming, the food a delight to eat. Would highly recommend for that something a little different to the average trattoria experience. A family business where it is evident that everyone works hard to make dining out enjoyable. Value for money too. Grazie Mille team Botte. .

    Cheerful, capable, cozy little restaurant. There is a bistro vibe. Our racks of lamb were done perfectly. Nice wine selection, including some half bottles. Creative desserts.

    My wife and I booked a table at 'La botte' based on a recommendation from the owner of the B&B we were staying in (Il folletto del Lago) and we were not disappointed with the tip. Service was very attentive and professional with good advice given when asked. The star of the evening was most definitely the food, where each dish surprised us in the way it was prepared and presented. The finishing touch was a Bill that was very democratic (65€/pp) for what was an excellent meal composed of aperitif, starter, main, dessert, water, 1 glass of wine, one aged grappa and a coffee. We will definitely be going back here on our next visit to Stresa and would recommend it without hesitation!

    Food was good and well presented. It's a very friendly family owned restaurant. The dessert menu is changed regularly and they are very creative. We love it there being there twice so far.

    Friendly hostess & waitors who can speak English. The dishes were delicious, and coulourful with a modern and creative touch. We had to order extra side dishes to complete a plate of pork meat with very little vegetables. But the Iberian pork pluma was good, almost like roast beef. I had the fried fish wirh tempura veges and fries in betweenehich very crispy and yet soft. The desserts were pleasant surprises and a real treat to the eyes and the taste buds.

    Nice casual restaurant, music was a bit intrusive but OK. Food was outstanding, service was good. Good choice of wine. No menu for pudding and hard to hear what was on offer so missed out on that.
