La Cambusa is a wonderful wine and deli in the centre of Stresa, nestled on one of the alleyways behind the main street. Rosaria has been running this deceptively large shop for over 50 years and is still going strong. An amazing selection of fine...More

We had a bad experience in this shop. The seller screwed up us, she gave the change back wrong and she tried to do it twice! The sellers seems friendly but take care of your money!!

We went on a walking tour of Stresa with the Tui rep and finished off in La Cambusa - what a brilliant little place. Very deceptive from the outside and much bigger than it looks. It's packed full of delights, and although I bought some,...More

The owner and daughter will educate you on any wine. A friendly store. The balsamic vinegar is extra-ordinary. I bought three bags of bruschette and wished I had bought more. It was fresh and a good gift to bring home.

Really fine wine shop. Wines from all over Italy are available. The family owners have vast knowledge of Italian wines and will help with selections. Wine tasting events are always available. Great spot to have fun while shopping.

Looking at La Cambusa from the outside and just inside the shop, it looks disturbingly like a tourist souvenir trap with pasta, dried porcini and olive oil. But there is so much more to it. I had during out stay in Stesa developed a taste...More

The spice bag called bruschetta is wonderful, you just add it into any food, and it adds its flavour. The staff, the owners are very professional to help you choose olive oil or balsamic vinegar or wine for your taste and budget. This is a...More
