Room at La Sacca Hotel have satellite TV and free Wi-Fi, and a lake Maggiore-view balcony, with private external bathroom. Free parking at the site. Few minutes drive to Stresa center. Good breakfast with nice view from restaurant.

This was a lovely meal, a super find of a resutaurant away from the town, so a short taxi ride gets you there. It is family run and the food was all home made, including the selection of breads. There was also delicious lake fish, I chose to have mine fried and it was delicious. I had booked online and... More

Always am apprehensive when you enter a large restaurant with only a handful of diners, but TripAdvisor reviews warned me in advance. My spouse had the Prix Fix meal. The restaurant now gives you options when ordering rather than leaving it up to the chef. The chef sent a complimentary starter. Anyway, he had the Meat Ravioli appetizer, Veal Chop... More

Very happy with a memorable restaurant experience. We spent three nights in Stresa, went to TA # 1, 3 and 2 in that order. We ate at Sacca our third and last night. Everything was first rate: the welcome, the service, the ambience, the food. Fine dining at its best in a casual yet elegant establishment.

We had dinner in La Sacca as a family, and overall we are very satisfied with the quality of food. Limited menu choices but a very unique and nice selection that would suit every choice. Don't miss their Shrimp Spaghetti, zucchini and parmesan soufflé, and for dessert the Sicilian pistachio ice cream cake. The staff are super friendly and attentive.

We've read all the nice recommendations about this restaurant on the tripadviser and decided to go there. However, it was rather a big disappointment. Too expensive for the quality what was offered. First, we had scallops which were too salty, and then some of us - a sword fish and some - a steak. The steak was really just burned... More

We visited La Sacca for dinner after seeing it held the no1 spot on trip advisor for restaurants and we were not disappointed. The service was perfect and our waitress had a good knowledge of both the wine list and the menu. We were given a selection of homemade breads and butter to start, and then a small plate from...

We'd researched restaurants ahead of our 3 nights in Stresa and struggled to find restaurants in the town that met what we'd ideally like (romantic atmosphere, top notch food and a good standard of service for a fair price) but struck lucky with Battipalo on night 1 and then struck gold with La Sacca on night 2! Despite a road... More

I don't usually write reviews but on this occasion I thought I should. We just had the most amazing meal. The service was brilliant. We met the owner and the chef. Kristina our waitress was fantastic. Top food and top service, I would totally recommend.

Followed tripadvisor and booked here for 5 for dinner. Charmingly attentive staff made us welcome with a nice table. The menu is not particularly extensive, but it is quite ambitious. A really good mozzarella and tomato amuse bouche, great grissini and lovely breads started us off. Two of us went for the meat menu. The 12 year old shared some... More
