Came here to soak up so much needed sun in the square. We came here daily for pre dinner Aperol Spritz. Lovely staff, lovely drinks. But the best part is sitting with an uninterrupted view of the lake. Delightful and peaceful.

I have been a couple of times at "Retro". It is not properly a restaurant but it is more a snack-bar and cocktail/wine bar. The "panini" are fantastic. The quality of the food is great and they are very original. There is the possibility to eat directly on the square with a direct view on the lake. The waiters are quick and nice. One of the best "quick" solution in Arona

This is not traditional Italian food, but the food is quite good. It is a mix of burgers and fast food. Not economical but tasty.

This is a lovely, friendly, relaxed eating and drinking experience. The staff were very helpful and the food is delicious. Good to go and watch the world go by and eat delicious food. Good value for money.

Not a big burger eater but it was delicious and the chips in their jackets almost tasted healthy. Sitting in the sun with that beautiful view and very attentive waitresses.
