A unique italian experience on the shores of Lake Maggiore, from the moment you step in the Hostaria La Speranza you are transported into a luxurious setting with a great attention to details. Fabrizia the owner welcomes you warmly and guides you through the menu. Starters are second to none for variety and taste but the best dish we had was a wonderful Barbaresco Risotto.Highly recommended and one of the restaurants I will always book in when in the area.

MiraLago Ã¨ un locale tranquillo e caratteristico dedicato agli amanti della buona tavola nella suggestiva cornice del Lago Maggiore. Il ristorante offre una romantica veranda, disponibile tutto lâanno, affacciata direttamente sul lago da cui godere di uno
Pity we haven't managed to eat pasta as we got there a bit too late for lunch, but pizza was really good (capricciosa and tirolese). We also ordered a big caprese salad which was tasty as well.Really nice being on the lake side while eating some good food.Just, be careful as there are bees coming to you. I personally do not mind as I grew up with bees, but some of you might find them annoying.

Had a dinner with fish (zander) and ratatouille and desserts - tiramisu and crema catalana. The fish was ok, not fabulous, but ok. When the desserts arrived,we both wondered if they were taken from the freezer and served. At least, they did not taste as fresh. Service good,attentive waiters.grazie,bacchetta renato

Was here in early June with a group of 10 business associates for our global planning meeting. Location was close to the lake with beautiful views. The accommodations were very good. Meeting room was super for our group. Food and service from staff was really super. Would return again.

The village of Ranco is much quieter than places such as Arona and Stresa on the other side of the lake, primarily because there's no lakeside road; you have to make a conscious decision to go there. Since it was our day of departure and we had plenty of time to kill we drove to Angera, wandered round the Rocca (fantastic!) and, with the aid of the Michelin site, came across Il Sole di Ranco just in time for lunch.Turned out to be a wise decision. A glass of Prosecco and we opted for the 3-course menu. The food is very good here - a starter of Risotto Milanese with fresh-water perch fillets, 'maialino da latte affumicato' (smoked suckling pig) and a superb dessert based on peaches and toffee. At 50 euros a head it's not a cheap place to eat, but you know that before you order. A bottle of Scalabrone turned out to be a great lunchtime accompaniment (by the way, their wine list is absurdly long and contains some outrageous stuff which is frankly way out of our price bracket, but maybe the people whose Aston Martin and Ferrari were stood in the hotel car park buy it...).Since we got home I've been reading the reviews on this site and was very surprised by the criticism of the service. The staff couldn't have been nicer to us; patient, helpful, friendly and tolerant of my admittedly basic Italian. It might be a different matter when the entire terrace is full for dinner, but there were just 5 tables laid for lunch so the whole atmosphere was very quiet and relaxed.I'd certainly go back. I'm intrigued how their 100-euro tasting menu would be and would love to try it, but driving to Malpensa Airport after that would be out of the question...

This restaurant is very popular and booking essential. Time should be left to find a car-parking space as well!The view is towards the east over Lake Maggiore. Service was attentive and the locally made breads were excellent. The octopus leg was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. The raviolis were good as a secundi. The main tempura vegetable and fish dish was huge and the tempura slightly on the thick side. The other main course was slightly under-seasoned for my taste.A pleasant evening as acouple enjoying nice food on the lakeside

The setting of this restaurant is fantastic, with big picture windows overlooking Lake Maggiore. We were here on a quiet night, serenaded by an eclectic mix of Italian love songs and Queen. The food was beautifully prepared, interesting and flavoursome. We took the sword fish (fabulous) and asparagus ravioli (very good), followed by the fillets of perch with aubergine and tomatoes set off by balsamic vinegar (beautiful - just a little oily - but that doesn't spoilt it). OK, its not cheap (98 euros for 2 people, 2 courses, a bottle of wine, a bottle of water and two coffees). But you will enjoy it.

Going for lunch on a perfect spring day, the patio had an amazing view over the lake. Service was attentive and efficient and friendly, without being intrusive.The prices are as stratospheric as the views, but the food is absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, with attention to detail in all manners.Very old school (chauvinistic), with the male (me) presented with a menu that has prices, and the female (wife) no prices, despite the fact that my wife was the one paying for dinner today!

I have been hearing about this place for a few months now so we have decided to test it out. We had family sunday lunch with small birthday celebration.The menu was excellent offering good variety of dishes. Not too many dishes as I get suspicious whether products are fresh. It has offered a diverse choice suitable to all tastes and the products were certainly fresh and carefully selected. The wine choice was also very good (pity I was designated driver but my husband has indulged).The highlight was maialino dish; very tender and juicy. Compliments to the chef.We had three/four course meal at very reasonable price. Superior quality, lovely interior and super nice service. It was our first visit but certainly not the last. We loved it :-)Thank you! Sorry for my bad english but i desire to answer you. I wait you and your family to taste our specialities that change every month and the special menu for the event like next woman's day or Easter or to taste our new Young proposal IL GIROPASTA
