It was raining on the night of our visit but we were very comfortably accommodated under cover in the garden and delightful it was too. Excellent service from a rather firm multi-lingual waitress who efficiently managed the entire 'room' on her own, We started with a Parma ham & fruit skewer plus pasta with cod, cherry tomatoes and olives (a...

We ate here one evening during our stay and went for the set menu and were not disappointed with the food we were presented with. Had the feel of homemade Italian cooking in a traditional setting. Service was pleasant and efficient and the surroundings unique. We could sit out by the lake all evening and enjoy the amazing view. Would... More

Baveno is not a big town and so the choice of restaurants is limited. Tried La Ripa based on Tripadvisor rating and it did not disappoint. The restaurant/hotel is a few minutes walk from town square along the main road. Decoration is quaint and homely. Service was personal and friendly. We were served a glass of rose as soon as...

If you want to have a nice dinner with great view of the Borromeo Islands, delicious rose wine - book a table at La Ripa. You can order lake or sea fish - everything is great (and huge). The home rose wine is so tasty, you can drink it every day.

My husband and I ate here one evening based on the warm recommendation of our hotel proprietors in Stresa.. We were joined by friends of ours and were looking for a nice, quiet evening with good food. This restaurant met all of our expectations. The restaurant belongs to a hotel of the same name, and it is situated at the... More

My wife and I ate here twice during our stay in Baveno. On neither occasion was it quite warm enough to sit fully outside in the lovely garden, but the semi covered area was nice, and the view over the lake excellent. Ideal for a nice romantic evening. The food was excellent. While the service could be described as slow,... More

Discreet service, quiet (almost too quiet), good local fish. Fairly expensive but probably worth it.

Since today we have passed Ripa because it seems difficult to get into via a car because it is situated in a corner of the road and there is no parking in front of the restaurant. One has to park opposite and it is difficult to pass the road as the cars come around the corner from Baveno center sometimes... More
