I work in Verbania, so I go to Dam a Traa at least once a week. It's the office "local". The food is very good, and the portions are amazingly large. Like America (for you Americans). I simply cannot finish a prima piate, a segunda piate, dolce e caffe (a full lunch). I usually stick to a segunda piate and some water, though since it's Italy I sometimes have the caffe.

The meals are very close to traditional Italian cuisine, and that's why my Italian collegues will go there as well. If you're in town, go here at least once. If you hear Americans and accented French, Belgian, Brazilian and Italian, it's us. Ciao!

We found this little gem through tripadvisor when visiting family in Pallanza on Lake Maggiore. My father's Italian and comes from there and he'd never been, so we thought we'd give it a try.

Don't expect silver service here - it's obviously a family-run concern, though in my opinion that's one of its merits, not a downfall. There's a very distinctive Mediterranean menu, and the food that we ordered was very fresh and with ample portions. You really could see that this was rustic, good, wholesome Italian food, designed for the locals and beautiful with it. It was so good that we ended up going several times while on holiday there - even took some other Italian relatives and they absolutely loved it too, which is saying something!

I'd wholeheartedly recommend Dam a Traa if you're visiting Verbania on holiday, you won't be disappointed if you want to try something fresh and original, give it a go!!
