The service would be funny if it was not pathetic to Olympic level. Totally disorganized to the point of craziness. Even the simplest food is inexcusably awful. I trust people end up here due to the lack of alternatives. This is the worst experience of our holidays in the area. DON'T GO!

We ate here twice during our week in Pella on beautiful Lake Orta. Right on the waterfront, it is perfectly placed for taking one of the ferries that crosses to the island or to the town of Orta San Giulio on the other side. On our arrival evening, we had spaghetti alle vongole (spaghetti with clams) which was absolutely delicious.... More

We tried this little restaurant on the banks of Lago D'Orta. The food was good and, as it was off season, we were the only people in the establishment. The dishes were delicious and reasonable.

We stopped off for lunch here on our way up to Madonna del Sasso. The outdoor area was completely full with happy diners, so we had to eat inside the restaurant, next to the window. As we sat down the aroma from fellow diners' fritto misto was so inviting that I just had to choose it for my main course,... More

Great view of the beautiful Lake Orta as a background for very good meals. La Piazzetta is a medium sized restaurant with a good choice typically Italian menu. The food is very good and the service is relatively fast. The "Misto fritto gigante" which is a LARGE fry-up of various seafood and vegetables is a, must try. Prices are very... More

On the Lake but very basic. Prices are okay and they have good coffee. The Pizza is basic but satisfies if you are hungry. The house red wine is sour tasting but at 6€ for a half jug it is hard to expect more.

Me and my husband had dinner at La Piazzetta – veal cutlet, lamb chops, grilled vegetables. The veal was hard, dry, cold and unseasoned, lamb chops consisted in 50% of bones, 30% of fat and 20% of meat – old and tasteless. The grilled vegetables were also cold. We paid 42€ for nothing really. And the waiter! Arrogant and upleasant.... More

Great service and good food. We ate one unchtime and also one evening on our 2 night stay. Prices are good, plenty of food, clean, lovely view to the island. You can watch everyone walking by. We came here also in July 2011 for an afternoon and had our lunch here. Pizza, pasta, paninis - great.

Great pizza, not all restaurants serve pizza for lunch (except for big tourists places), this one does :). The pizza was really great, thin, crispy and large. Pizza prosciutto EUR 6,- and piccante salame EUR 6,50, bottle of water EUR 2,- ans coca cola EUR 2,50. What i don't like is that the charge EUR 1,- per person for service... More

A cut above the average pizza joint. Nicely done and serving really first class pizzas. Pleasant, friendly service. Good value (even with a €2 per person cover charge). One of the best pizzas we’ve had in Italy over the last couple of months. Try a nero tartufo for dessert. Overall, highly recommended.
