We have been to this restaurant many times and have recommended it to many of my friends. It is reminiscent of Italian restaurants in New York City’s Little Italy. The food is excellent especially the veal. Prices have risen 30% in the past few years, and it would still be worth it if the quality of service matched that of the food. Unfortunately it does not even come close. In Little Italy, waiters treat you like you are a guest in their home. In Stresa’s they treat you like you are an annoyance to be tolerated. Service at this restaurant has been declining for years. When I’m paying nearly $60.00 per person (with tax and tip) I expect to be treated professionally. Our waiter was curt, condescending, arrogant and insulting. He literally ruined the meal. My guests were shocked because I had recommended the restaurant so highly. There are many other fine restaurants in this area, I will not be going back to this one nor will, I am sure, any of my guests. If the level of service that we experienced is now typical of this restaurant, I don’t expect them to remain in business much longer.

fabulous, authentic food, tortellini in brodo soup is over the top! grilled calamari I would rate it a 4 but very delicious. Worth trying again and other items
