Just wondering what the food and drink prices are like to eat in the hotel restaurant and in the area? Any advice is much appreciated
I'm not sure about the hotel as we didn't eat there. The main square in town has lots of good food for €7 upwards for a main course and the quality and service can be pretty decent.
Cocktails on the terrace are good value. Dinner is very expensive - we didn't eat there as there are some nicer options in the town.
Hi visited Stresa and worked there as well many times. In the hotel you wouldn't really eat apart from breakfast. The choice of places in stresa to eat is very good. Papa Gallo a pasta pizza joint, Mama Mia a good authentic restaurant. One of the hotels the Fiorentino just off the square is a very good place that serves excellent food. Ristorante Piamontese is very good but a bit more expensive. Il Vicoletto and lo Stornello. These along with osteria Amici just off the town square are also very good. To be honest it's difficult to fault any of the places I have mentioned. Try the Ristorante in the Fiorentino Carla the older woman who owns the hotel has her family all working husband and son as chefs. Worth a visit wherever you go. Enjoy.
