Amazing vegan options

A very special Michelin food spot with amazing vegan options, all clearly labeled. Our highlight definitely was dessert, the mousse au chocolate and the blancmange are next level!

about the vegan options-
we ordered the tofu with rice + broccoli soup (The soup does not appear in
the vegetarian menu, but is also vegan).
Both dishes were amazing and made so deliciou, that is why we did double order of these dishes.
The wines are also excellent and the service.
Highly recommend.

Pros: couple vegan dishes, yammy

Cons: a little bit expansive, because its fancy

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le dessert (red velvet cake vegana). La carte propose quatre vrais choix véganes. Les deux plats que nous avons choisi étaient très bons.

Pros: 4 options de plat végane, 1 très bon dessert végane , Serveurs agréables

Great meal in stresa

Came to Stornello based on the previous Happy Cow review and I was not disappointed. The menu's dedicated "vegetarian corner" section offered 4 dishes, which are in addition to another couple of other vegetarian (not vegan) dishes on the pasta menu. The beetroot gazpacho with spring onion, daikon, and tumeric was absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend it for those who like gazpacho. The vegetable tagliatelle (vegan) was also very good, served with a vegan ragout and cherry tomato sauce. I ate at Lo Stornello for lunch and it was not busy at all. It is possible though that a reservation is needed in the high season.

Pros: Delicious food

Smart restaurant at reasonable prices

We were delighted to come across Ristorante Lo Stornello. The restaurant is smartly presented and located in the town centre. There a quite a few menu options that would suit those following a vegetarian or plant-based diet. In particular, there is a great little section on the menu called “Vegetarian Corner” (see photo July 2018). There is a choice of 4 main course dishes (two of which appeared to be completely plant based). We both had the tagliatelle and whilst I’m not usually a big fan of vegan cheese, it was used sparingly and complemented the dish which worked really well. We had a choice of 3 different flavoured sorbets for dessert. I had grapefruit and my wife had mandarin sorbet both of which were delightfully fresh and refreshing. The staff were charming and efficient, spoke good English and made us feel welcome. We both enjoyed our meals so much we came back again the following evening.
Highly recommended but would advise making a reservation at weekends or during peak season as Stresa can get busy.

Pros: Choice of plant based menu options, Helpful staff, Reasonably priced
