Little hidden gem. If you like risotto then look no further. Those who have made it know how difficult it is to make. Let me tell you, simply amazing. Smerlado risotto was one of the best I had. A must try! Everything in total was...More

Being on the the authoritative guide" Osterie d'Italia" (Slow Food) , I was looking for an outstanding restaurant. Food was good , service really basic. Outdated place but a free parking just in front. A bit expensive.

Book a table, then motor up out of Luino on the quieter East bank of Lago Maggiore, snake up the hill to Poppino and follow the signs for Agra. It's a ten minute drive. 15 for the less dynamic driver. Enter through the bar, sit...More
