We were the only guests as we arrived upon opening and the couple who own this restaurant were just wonderful to us. The food was very good and there was so much of it! A large group arrived later and we were still treated wonderfully. The food is home-style and local. I am sure there are fancier "better" restaurants in... More

Homey atmosphere, owners on premise. Very gracious and helpful hosts. Not too busy and received excellent and prompt service. Menu items varied, food we had was excellent, best Expresso ever. Good bottle of wine, all reasonably priced.....although not to be considered cheap. Will dine again before we leave after our two week stay.

Al Rustico is a small restaurant up above Stresa where the owners are very welcoming and the food is typical of the region, prepared home style.

Nice lovely restaurant just 5 minutes up the hill from Stresa. We were there for a week and went there most days. The owners were extremely friendly, always greeted us with a warm welcome. The food was great - home-cooked dishes with fragrant herbs and lovely desserts. The restaurant is nice and cosy with a lovely ambience. Highly recommended. David

Thank you to the kind Family who run Al Rustico. We've been coming to Stresa for 9 years in a row, discovered this little restaurant and are always happy. The decor, good food (very abundant too) and above all the warm welcome are always a treat and we hope to come again next year! Grazie!

Hello, A group of twelve of us stayed in stresa for a week and ate out a lot but this place was our favourite. The owners were brilliant to us and the atmosphere was great and very relaxing like eating in their front room- which it almost is. If you get bored of having the same dining experiences in town...

Al Rustico is located in the village of Someraro, up the hill from Stresa, Italy. It is a family-run restaurant featuring typical Italian dishes not always on the local menus. The owners speak limited English but have a menu in English to help you. It is fairly small (8 tables) and feels like a hideaway since it is on the... More
