Description
Castagneto Restaurant was founded in 1969 in the green hills of Montrigiasco, a small village 7 km from Arona, by Lake Maggiore. It is run by siblings Antonella and Franco Spinella, fourth generation of restaurant keepers, with the help of their mother Franca. The atmosphere is friendly and stylish, with a welcoming restaurant room and a beautiful and cool terrace with a view that sweeps over the hills of Lake Maggiore and beyond, to the nearby Lombardy.Traditional Novara and Verbano cuisine are blended with imagination and originality and menus can vary daily, according to what the market offers and to the logic succession of the seasons
