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 very delicious and staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

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 Outdated place but a free parking just in front.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.

are years that we frequent this great address, close to Luino (Verbano Lake). Family atmosphere and a great value for the price and quantity. Surely you do not go away with hunger.
The dishes are well presented and resume the ingredients of many recipes of the Lombardy region with a touch of innovation. Great the foie gras, homemade. They using fresh and seasonal food and they always updating the menu Excellent cellar with many different wines of all Italian regions. The Adriano's desserts are wonderfull, keep some place to try them.

The menu of the Smeraldo is not extensive, but more than sufficient, and I always find something delicious. From the Antipasti and Primi to Secondi and Dolce I honestly never had something I didn't like. If it's the right time of the year, you'll find quite a few dishes with fungi porcini and local herbs; and even if you're craving something that's not on the menu, the helpful staff will try to make it happen. It's a friendly restaurant with superb food, and the food is worth every cent.

It's very good traditional fine Italian kitchen, not as excellent as 20 years ago when the Mama ran the kitchen, but still really good and it offers a larger and more haute quisine menu choice than the usual Pizzeria. The place is idyllic and it's wonderful to sit outside, the densly forested area great for a quick hike and the air is smells as good as the food, enriching the taste of the food.
