Ristorante Bar Imbarcadero at Pella Lago Orta

This is a small restaurant/bar situated on the shores of Lake Orta, on the other side from Orta San Guilio.

I love this place for a number of reasons, the top one being sentimental. A brought me here when we were just getting to know each other and he invited me to spend my last few days in Italy vacationing with him in Calabria. If he hadn't asked me, I would have gone my way, he his and our story would have ended. Instead.....

You can't beat the setting -- waves lapping at the shores mere feet away; small town village with stone towers (turned into a Creperie) and colorful old buildings with 'peeling' paint.

There is a play-ground for small children. Parents can stop for an aperitivo and still keep an eye on their vivacious offspring a short distance away.

Gaze at the island of Orta S. Guilio across the lake while dining outside, or wonder who might be looking down at you from The Madonna del Sasso sitting on the enormous rock above. That church, by the way, is also worth a visit.

If you are in the area, they are at Piazza Motta in Pella
Tel 0322 91 80 03

Usually closed Mondays and Tuesday evening but from June 1 through October 1, they are open everyday.
