Fodor's Expert Review Hostaria San Pietro

$$ Ascona Italian

If you're looking for a bite in the Old Town, take out your map and try your best to find this charming restaurant, tucked away in a maze of tiny streets. This little gem serves creative Italian-influenced pasta and fish dishes—sample its fresh local catch (often a fish fillet in lemon-basil sauce) or any of the grilled specialties. The most romantic tables are in the intimate garden that's between the walls of neighboring houses.
