As a family of 5 with a small dog (Buddy) staying in Pettenasco near Lake Orta (Lago d’Orta), we were looking for a quality steakhouse in the near vicinity. We found Beba’s only 20 minutes away, in the small village of Ornavasso. We parked right...outside and went to our table which we pre-booked. As an English-speaking family, we struggle to understand more advanced Italian, and our waiter, Mattia, was very accommodating and explained the steak dishes to us in English. The food (steak in particular) was amazing and the service was second to none. We’ll definitely be coming back! Photo is of the Uruguay Grain Fed Angus Steak which was extremely tender and cooked perfectly medium. Well done Beba’s 😁👍🏼More

We saw an ad on Facebook, and being in the immediate vicinity decided to give this restaurant a try - which turned out to be an excellent idea. Beba's is on the main street of the small village of Ornavasso, parking is easy, and you...could probably even come by train, as the station is only a few steps away. Upon arrival we were greeted friendly and had a nearly free choice of seats in the very clean dining area, which is a fairly good interpretation of an American diner. The menu is divided into a "standard" part with quite economically priced meat dishes and a large choice of imaginatively named and combined pizzas - and a separate "meats of the world" menu with the more "exotic" (and pricier) items. Following the recommandation of our very kind waitress we chose a piece of Australian meat form the latter menu - and it was absolutely marvelous! Before the main dish arrived (we shared), we were treated to a very appetizing snack of "gnocco fritto" and Coppa. The main dish is served on a HOT stone plate, ideal for slowly enjoying the delicious meat which was cooked to perfection. The 300 grammes of meat fully lived up to the description - we have very rarely eaten such tender and tasty meat. It comes as standard with oven roasted potatoes, rice, and a skewer with grilled baby tomato and smoked Scamorza cheese - we had asked for an additional side order of grilled vegetables - both quality and quantity were more than OK. We finished with fresh strawberries and a lemon sorbet, plus excellent espressos - and decided to be back very soon. The bill came to 60 EUR for two, which isn't cheap, considering that we shared the main dish (but without any regrets - two main dishes would have been too much), but considering the quality actually good value for money. A VERY nice touch is that when you sign up for the restaurant's newsletter, and remember to mention the "magic word" when ordering, you're treated to not a "welcome drink", but actually a bottle of Prosecco sparkling wine.More
