This place is great for its pizzas: more than 100 different variations on this theme. Nice staff. Seating is possible both outside with view on lake and inside in nice trendy atmosphere. Very well organized. We had dinner here about 5 times, never had to wait longer than 10-15 minutes. Unfortunately no wife. Entrecotes were not excellent. But pizzas are... More

Came back to Arona to stay at the Giardino hotel for a week, and as the restaurant is next door it makes sense to eat here. First night, a decent pizza. However it is a little disappointing to see every table in the restaurant given bread apart from ours. Not sure why. Other nights the pizzas are always good, but... More

I was fortunate to be able to spend a few months in Arona over a couple of years and was able to wander through most of the restaurants in town during my many visits. I found the Giardino Ristorante Pizzeria to be the place I visited most often. The Staff has always been extremely friendly and, except for during special... More

This place is always busy, the food is good, yet locals have told me that it is not always fresh, I beg to differ. I have never had a bad meal there and find it a good place to have a long lunch.

We went to Arona for the day from Milan and noticed this restaurant was pretty full which is always a good sign. It was busy with Italian families all out for a relaxed Sunday lunch.

The restaurant was full in late October. Very few tourists and many locals, especially what appeared to be construction crews. Unfortunately when I asked (in Italian) for the same dish as the man next to me I was informed that was only for the "the workers." They had the same dish for me but it was much larger and more...

Nice restaurant close to lake Maggiore in the centre of Arona with some outside seating. Huge choice of dishes on the menu, including 100 types of pizza, traditional Italian cuisine and local specialities. Helpful and friendly staff.

All fresh and delicious, great portions, creative dishes, big choice of menu, great pizzas, nice busy ambiente, modern large space next to the lake. This restaurant, considering the food, was by far our favourite restaurant at lago maggiore and we tried out many traditional italian restaurants around the lake.

The food was average quality and so was the service. The atmosphere was not what we expected and it did feel a lot like a tourist trap. I do wish we had gone to a different place.
