This is a busy restaurant where the tables stretch out onto the pavement overlooking the main square in Stressa, so the ambiance is great with lots going on all around.

There is a very pleasant welcome on arrival and if they have a table free, you are taken to it straight away, but...you may have to wait a few minutes if you arrive later in the evening.

The waiters are unusually attentive, you get bread and crostini straight away with the menu which is full of good, traditional Italian dishes. The wine list is also pretty good - we went with the house recommendation which was perfectly OK.

The first course arrives within a few minutes and when finished the second course isn't too far behind - no rush, just about right. The deserts are excellent and can all be finished off with coffee and grappa.

When the bill arrives, it is not a shock which is a pleasant surprise for such a well located restaurant, so overall a great experience.

I recall that the restaurant has been in the family for a very long time - it shows - everything works well and you go away very satisfied thinking about possibly going again another night. Highly recommended if you want a good honest meal out.

Situated on the main piazza of Stress.
We ate four meals here and enjoyed all of them. The lasagna, cannelloni, fish, osso bucco with risotto, spaghetti with basil and a very tasty cabonaro - all recommendable.
We also enjoyed their torte de Maison and apple cake. The waiters are very polite and attentive without being overbearing. For a good "home made" meal Torino would be a good choice.

Nothing but good honest food as loved by tourists. The tiramisu was enough for two to share. Service was good. Closes around 8.30 as do all places in the piazza.

Must be the best coffee in Stressa. Returned for lunch another day and it was excellent. My husband had a pizza which he struggled to finish but loved it. I had lasagne which I also enjoyed. Found staff friendly although busy.
