Via Prisciola, 10
Orta San Giulio, 28016
The restaurant of the Agriturismo Il Cucchiaio di Legno ("wooden spoon") at Legro above Lake Orta provides a really special gastronomic experience at an incredibly low price. The handwritten menu offers delights like seafood risotto, salami and cheeses from the local valleys and home-grown produce from their farm. The desserts are homemade, too, and the wines are all from Piedmont. In summer, there's outdoor dining on the veranda or in gazebos scattered around the garden. Open Thursday through Sunday only; reservations recommended.
