  • Fantastic location with lake view. Rocca Borromea not always open, ruined by a semi modern restaurant.

  • Majestic manor house dominating the Rocca di Angera, with spectacular view on Lake Maggiore, with its Museum of dolls, which I hope to visit very soon

  • Unfortunately I found that up to March the visits are not possible. Although I heard noises coming from inside the fortress of girls who spoke English. From the shore of Lake la vista della Rocca is gorgeous, shame the white and I think belong to the bar/restaurant. A real punch to decency.

  • Actually I'd give two points for the scenic views, but the ground settling €1.5 for the cover charge per person (coffee and cake) takes the biscuit. Coffee is an impudence. Actually every Italian should feel personally attacked when something would served him. Cake looks much like freezer and tastes the same.

  • Location with a unique view and spectacular! A visit to the Rocca di Angera makes you hungry and this café is perfect for a snack with a piece of pie or a little spumante before lunch. feel free to stop by!

  • The setting of the Castle helps withstand bloodletting two freshly squeezed orange juice at 10 euros. And to think we wanted a simple coffee cream but not made ... and thank goodness that it is called Café.

  • A lovely place and a service to match. Should be more publicized.
