Great location directly at the lake side. But unfortunatly the worst food and service I every had in Italy in the last 30 years. Maybe they only had a bad day...

Since there is a new management (2015) the place has dramatically improved! The lake fish and fishy pasta are great, price for value very good and service is efficient and very kind. A good place to stay close to the water

This spot is just over the lake Orta water. Very nice view and relaxed. Excellent for an hot day lunch time as the terrace is cold and fresh. The food is not marvelous but good.

As other reviews have noted the restaurant is now under new management and it's a very welcome change indeed. The efforts of Julio and his team are well worth a visit. It is such a gorgeous spot, very special and very much known by the locals. The food is now so fantastic. Lots of fish and meat and interesting and... More

I wrote well of this restaurant under its previous management but standards later slipped. It is back on form again now, with a particular emphasis on fish dishes and some very reasonable wines. It is the perfect place for a sunny lunchtime or a warm evening under the ancient vine on the lake's edge. It tends to be quiet in... More

The Venanzio is now under new management after the flooding of last autumn. It's a wonderful place to dine under the vine overlooking Lake Orta on the quiet side. The new chef has changed the menu and it is definitely worth revisiting.

The restaurant is at the end of a road boring the lake. The service is perfect and the meal was delicious with the right quantity. In one word, one of our best quality - price ever.

The service was lovely,... More

Hidden away at the end of a cul-de-sac, down a seven-bend hill and through the tiny hamlet of Pascolo lies one of the most romantic spots in Italy. Sitting at stone tables under an ancient vine, right next to tranquil Lake Orta, you can enjoy friendly service and excellent food. Run by the Marietti family for more than half a... More
