Restaurant recommendations for Wedding (Lake Maggiore/Lake Orta area)


My fiance and I are trying to find a restaurant in either Lake Maggiore or Lake Orta for our wedding reception and dinner. I have been searching online, but don't see anything that seems fitting. Our wedding coordinator has suggested a few restaurants, but it's really difficult to tell if the food is any good.

A few details about what we're looking for (besides amazing food):
-Lakeside or lakeview important
-Does not have to be fine dining, but that could also work
-Large party 20-30 people
-Outdoor seating, or at least a terrace
-Would be a bonus if there were beautiful grounds

Thank you, Chowhounders!

  1. You might consider Ristorante Settimo Cielo which is high above the lake (Maggiore) if you don't want one of the lakefront hotels in Stresa.

      Thank you ejbjr, I'll look up that restaurant. I really want to stay away from the very touristy areas, which from my experience don't always have the best or most authentic food. I want our guests to feel that they really have a sense of the food of the Piedmont region.

        This might help.

        The Brovelli family is wonderful. The place is spectacular. The food is very good. A great place to have a wedding on Maggiore, if they do weddings.
