Superb traditional Italian restaurant used by locals and only expensive if you want it to be. It is a short walk away off the main lake side promenade in Baveno. Certainly well worth a visit; the owners and staff are very warm and friendly and the food is excellent. This restaurant is well worth a visit and deserves the Trip Advisor rating it currently benefits from. We are going again tomorrow night.

The pizza is very good. It was described to us as "out of this world". Quite frankly, I've eaten better pizza outside of Italy which does not mean that the pizza is not good. In fact, it is very good. If you go here for pizza, this place is definitely worth recommending.

The place is run by the two owners and another person making the pizza. They are friendly, the atmosphere could be better. Our starters were good (although a bit pricy at 10 Euro each). The red wine della casa came chilled. The dessert (ice cream with crushed meringue) was chilled through with ice crystals inside. We have eaten better and at the same time cheaper in Baveno.

It's worth finding this restaurant! The pizzas are very good and cooked in the wood fired oven located right in the dining area. If not ordering pizza, they offer a good variety on the regular menu. What makes this restaurant stand out is the friendliness of Giovanni and Giuseppe. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of prosecco when we arrived and had a taste of delicious limoncello before leaving. And, because we like our pizza picante, the chef brought us his special red pepper mixture from the kitchen along with a fresh chili pepper! We wish we could have dined there again before leaving the area.

Located up the hill on a side street on a quiet piazza in Baveno. We enjoyed our meal so much that we went back 2 nights later, some thing we never do on vacation. The 2 owners, Giovanni and Giuseppe are perfect hosts and made us want to come back for the hospitality and great food!

We felt like we were "regulars" on the first night!
