We stayed in this area four days and my son made us find pizzerias every day. I am very glad we found this place. From all the places this has the best pizza in the area. The locale is very charming. We sat in their inner patio. The atmosphere is inviting and the service very good. I ate a pizza... More

My husband loves escargot and he swears the ones he enjoyed here are the best he's ever had. We enjoyed a nice meal outside in their courtyard even though it was a cool night, since they had heaters. All of the food and wine was delicious and reasonable.

Located in Stresa near the Piazza; it was a hotel recommendation. The pizza was excellent, the sauce was not sweet and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the lasagna and said it was the best he had on this trip. The menu offered many selections and it was reasonably priced.

When I've been in the summer always felt rushed and food seems to be small portions and not always attractive. In the winter, perhaps because not so many tourists, food definitely is worth going to. Pizza is great all year

A group of six visited Pappagallo for diner. We were lucky to get a seat as we had no reservations. Would advise visitors to make a reservation. A variety of dishes from pizza and pasta were ordered and everyone raved about their selection. Tried to go back the next night but alas no reservations. In short great food and atmosphere... More

Everything we tried between four of us was delicious. Atmosphere of typical Italian family style taverna. Busy with locals and tourist. Lovely veranda. Good service.

The place is quite packed, and the waiters have a stretching notion of a 2-minutes wait. Once seated the food was promptly served. The desserts seem all homemade. The place seems to have more seating after 9pm.

Went here on local recommendation of the hotel. Well service was good so all stars to that. The food ordered was a classic Italian fare menu( u have to try hard to go wrong with this) Pizza Margherita Pizza Salami And Penne al arrabbiata Pizzas were nice and thin. A bit too thick on the edges and with not much... More
