Osteria Ara 3 in the heart of the small Isola dei Pescatori will conquer all your senses! It is a gastronomic experience that one does not expect to find in this small strip of land on Lake Maggiore. The osteria is located in a historic residence with frescoes dating back to the nineteenth century, where there reigns a tranquil, almost sublime atmosphere, and completed by enchanting landscape that surrounds it. Wonderful patio with pergola for a romantic dinner or a tête-à-tête meal.
A refined and warm atmosphere with a very careful mise en place, a menu card with genuine and prime dishes await you for a culinary journey all over Italy. Indeed, the menu offers not only fish from the lake but also from the sea, Piedmontese and Sicilian specialties. From appetizers such as Fassona steak tartare delle Langhe with black truffle, escalope of duck foie gras with Tropea red onions and fig honey, and the traditional first course such as beetroot and potato tortelli with mountain butter and poppy seeds, ravioli del Plin with Parmigiano Reggiano and Truffle. As for the main course you can choose the turbot in bread crust, lake perch with fried herbs and passion fruit. If you are fond of dessert do not miss the classic lemon cake of the island with vanilla ice cream! Generous portions and carefully prepared dishes will complete both a taste and a visual experience.
Let yourself be seduced by scents, colours and the warmth and friendliness of the staff but remember to book! If you arrive by boat from Stresa, the transportation will be free at scheduled times.
