Description: Castagneto Restaurant was founded in 1969 in the green hills of Montrigiasco, a small village 7 km from Arona, by Lake Maggiore. It is run by siblings Antonella and Franco Spinella, fourth generation of restaurant keepers, with the help of their mother Franca. The atmosphere is friendly and stylish, with a welcoming restaurant room and a beautiful and cool terrace with a view that sweeps over the hills of Lake Maggiore and beyond, to the nearby Lombardy.Traditional Novara and Verbano cuisine are blended with imagination and originality and menus can vary daily, according to what the market offers and to the logic succession of the seasons

We took the way up the hill to have dinner in this restaurant. Very attentive service and the selected plates were excellent with a large choice of local and foreign wines. Worth the short travel and you want be disappointed!

A small detour from our destination but certainly worth while the extra kilometers. The courses are very generous and tasteful, all served in an amazing setting. Definitely go there if you have the chance!

This restaurant is located about 15 minutes drive up the hill from Arona. We took a cab and payed 15 euro. The restaurant is situated in a very beautyful place. Compared to Arona it's very peaceful and there's a stunning view from the terrace. You can actually see all the way to Milan. We came here for dinner, the staff are very helpful, welcoming and speak english. We had three dishes followed by great local red wine. Every dish was delicious and perfectly balanced. One of our best meals in Italy. Great value for money and well worth the cab drive. We will definitely go back next time we're in Arona.

Stayed at their B&B which is located over the restaurant, and included breakfast. Food and service was fantastic. The entire family went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one.

This is the kind of restaurant you dream of when you plan a visit to Italy.
The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming; the salle-à-manger is spacious and with a lovely view; the food is outstanding (choose whatever, you cannot go wrong) and the wine list is very comprehensive and divided by region, so you can find the same type of wine produced in different locales and you will be told what makes it different.
This is where I always take guests, as the chance of being made to look bad is less than 0%. And the chance of eating well is 100%.
