We were intrigued by the menu at Ristorante Posta which included chocolate ravioli, so had to give it a go. The converted post office has many pictures and other mementos from its previous history. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service very attentive and helpful. Our waiter gave us some excellent recommendations, including the ravioli, not actually filled with chocolate, but marscarpone and gorgonzola and cocoa in the pasta mix, and very tasty. We both had rare beef (cut into thin strips and in a mound) and coated in balsamic vinegar. The entire menu had many original dishes and was reasonably priced for the quality. The wines too were not over-priced. There were plenty of locals (or rather Milanese) and a few other tourists for a Wednesday night in late October.

I recommend this restaurant most highly and plan to return.

We were lucky enough to secure one of the 5 rooms in their B&B atop the restaurant, so ate here 4 of our 5 nights in Baveno.

This is a busy place. I should think a res is almost always necessary. They serve lunch and dinner daily except Thursdays. Located in the small square along with the town hall and a couple of shops you can dine inside in one of the 3 rooms or outside at one of the few stationary tables.

The menu is varied. Our #1 choice was the beef fillet with sweet balsamic sauce (not on the english menu and maybe not always available). The fresh brushetta with tomatoes is huge (we shared it) and delicious. the 'two eggs on a plate' is cute and yummy for dessert. the swordfish with pasta was excellent. the veal pate with blueberry jam was fabulous. the carpacchio of beef was abundant and delicious (main course).
No pizza is served.

The house white wine is a slightly effervescent delicious light addition to any meal.

This is the kind of family restaurant one comes to for a delicious unhurried meal. Don't plan to rush in and out.

The rooms are warm and evoke a friendly feel. The menu contains something for everyone.
