We met friends here for drinks one evening. The courtyard at the back of the place is lovely. Cocktails were a bit disappointing and drinks (as in the rest of Stresa) are not inexpensive. The atmosphere was great. Staff were friendly enough.

Very nice patio, small and private ambient. Good pizza and the greek salad was amazing, very good staff. We enjoyed so much even suffering the extreme warm weather, it was an oasis in the town center.

This cafe was a real find. There is a cute covered garden at the back with tables and chairs. The staff were friendly and smiling. The food was delicious, freshly made, and quickly served. It was a very hot afternoon, and this place and the...More

We stopped in for an early lunch and had a great, meaty meal and beer in the covered garden. Attentive staff and nice food overall. Would recommend especially if one needs a break from the typical pizza and pasta that's plastered all over the country...More
