Lake Orta, Italy - photo montage

Pictures and a few details of Lake Orta restaurants and in the surrounding area.



On the way to Lake orta from Malpensa, we found a very cheap meal (10€) 3 course set menu including wine and water. Very good simple food. Nice outside space to eat, peaceful even though it is very close to the road.

Berimbao, Via Francisca 12, 28028 Pettenasco, Italy

A family restaurant with Crabbia just down the road from our accommodation at L’Antica Colonia. Very reasonable prices for Pizza with a wide choice. Seafood was varying, was not that keen on the mussels.


Taverna Antico Agnello in Villa Nigra Via Solaroli 5 - 28010 Miasino

We went here twice, they have a great set menu in the week or you can  opt for the a la carte menu. Beautiful peaceful surrondings with excellant service.


Osteria San Martino, Vicolo Chiuso, 8 | fraz. Crabbia, Pettenasco, Italy

In the small area of Crabbia. An upmarket small, but very popular restaurant.  Good service with complimentary prosecco.  Interesting dishes, mountain food quite heavy but very tasty.

Ristorante Giardinetto, via provinciale, 1, 28028 Pettenasco, Italy, Part of a small hotel chain, met our landlady and most of the other chefs  in the area seemed to be there also.  Mixed results; appetizers great pastas were the worst of the holiday. Possibly we should have gone for the set menu which those in the know were devouring.

Monte Rosso, Località Cima Monterosso  28921 Verbania Pallanza VB, Italy
If you are willing to make the trip up to the top you will be rewarded with the most amazing views and hearty country cooking. The road is scary though 180 degree hairpin bends for 30 minutes.

Villa Crespi, Via Fava, 18  28016 Orta San Giulio Novara, Italy

5 star hotel with 2 star Michelin food, amazing food with prices to match. The photos do more justice than my writing. However a few notes quite surprised no charge for the prosecco to start the meal or the extra coffees we ordered, admittedly we did order the 150€ menu each delicious but far too filling for us both. See separate post for all images.

 Agriturismo Il Cucchiaio di Legno, Via Prisciola 10 Località Legro, Italy
A great agriturismo very close to Pettenascu train station. A 25€ set menu with a changing weekly menu, only open Thursday and Friday evening and Saturday and Sunday lunchtimes.  You get a  number of antipasti dishes, 2 pastas and 2 mains and then a choice of desserts. Rustic but with real charm.
