We generally go to Il Pozzo when we are visiting as it does very good Pizzas at a fair price. Further into Orta itself of course the prices go up and I would say the Pizza becomes less authentic. It is true that Il Pozzo caters very well for the locals and to be honest unlike most of the other... More

I have earn here on numerous ocassions over a number of years but was extremely disappointed when I went this month. Unfortunately it's been about 18 months since my last visit and I was very surprised with the change. The wine per glass didn't even touch the bottom, when we complained they were very dismissive, the pizzas were very poor... More

We were recommended here as the best place in town for pizza and although it was very good pizza, not the best in town. I had the Inferno, really good but beware very very spicy. It's out of the main town by the car parks so good if you don't want the hilly walk to town, service good and very... More

The food is good, not great by any means, but good. The prices are very reasonable and it gets really hopping by about 21:00. I have no idea if anyone there speaks any other languages and the service is pretty relaxed, so it may not be the best for stressed tourists with kids or someone seeking something refined. That being... More

Kind staff, good service, simple but good food. Both inside and outside sitting is good. Perfect located near the parking with a nice view over the lake.

We ate a lovely lunch here on our visit to Orta San Giulio. The cafe has a great play area outside which kept the boys entertained. The menu is simple and cheap, we all had pizza and gluten free pizza is also available. It was delicious and the staff were very friendly.

Although the seating gives decent views of Orta the seats and tables are cheap plastic and of low quality. We were served pretty quickly (no English translation menus, then again I should probably have learned more Italian). Waiter was quite rude. I had the indecisioni (or something like that) pizza. It tasted good but within a few minutes of leaving... More

We walked by the restaurant earlier and saw the sign on the gate said 6:30 p.m. So we came back at 6:35 and walked in a young man, maybe the manger, said we would have to come back at 7 p.m. We came back at 7:05 and he waved us toward the dining room. It was cool outside, so we... More

It's a great name and the pizza and focaccia were very good. You'll likely have to ask to place your order, but it's taken cheerfully. Looks like a place where locals sit and sip for hours. Pretty interesting and worth a visit
