In Stresa for five nights and saved this place till last, because of reviews here and in Lonely Planet. It was a bit of a mixed bag though, unfortunately. We went for two courses. First courses both good although the gnocchi was pre-cooked/shop bought whereas I had hoped it would be made 'in house'. The polenta with porcini was excellent... More

We made sure we arrived as this restaurant opened as we had heard that it was very popular, and it did soon fill up. We were out of season so I would recommend booking in advance if you would like to eat here. The restaurant is small and rustic with friendly staff and good home cooking. The portions were generous... More

We were only in Stresa for 5 nights but we ate dinner here twice. We just had to go back after our first great meal. The food is excellent and comes in hearty portions. My husband's mixed grill was a true feast! Delicious local dishes served in a small, welcoming setting. Matilde, the lady in charge, is wonderful. This little... More

Very cose to the lake, just a few steps from a square in the town centre, La Botte seems to be a popular choice for good and simple food. We opted for various types of pasta - with mushrooms, creamy sauce and some cheese, and both options were very tasty. So were grissini, a part of coperto. Wines were fine,... More

My zuppa di fagioli was very good, I highly recommend it. People with me had spaghetti aglio olio and gnocchi di capriolo, they were also very good, especially the gnocchi. My fish (misto trota) was only OK. Deserts we had were good Service was friendly, but little slow.

I was headed for a dinner to a place just down the street when I walked by La Botte and something told me that I have to change my plans. So we decided to change the dinner plan and try La Botte. We were not disappointed. Mozzarella with prosciutto from the oven was great. Lasagna was excellent as was tagliata.... More

We had a fantastic meal. Service was good and the food was excellent (and local). It stood out among the restaurants that we ate at in Stresa.
