  • 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.

  • 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.
