We arrived here after walking from Cannobio on the shores of Lake Maggiore, which is to be recommended as it is an easy walk up a pretty, wooded valley beside a cascading mountain river. It took us just under an hour to reach the picturesque church of Santa Anna with the restaurant sitting behind.

We had a delicious lunch of pasta and a dessert, both courses beautifully cooked and presented by a friendly English speaking waiter. Wine is available by the glass and is very drinkable and good value.

This restaurant is to be thoroughly recommended for either lunch or dinner, although the latter would involve a short drive up the valley from Cannobio.

What a marvelous spot! Hiking to the Grotto for lunch from the town of Cannobio is our favorite. But, dinner at the Ristorante is charming, too. They offer a seasonal array of locally based dishes plus several standard continental choices.

We dine out quite a bit and this place is really average. The best thing about it is the picturesque location, behind a church overlooking the gorge. But the food is really mediocre, I did not find tasty or particularly well-presented and the services was sooo incrediblyyy slooooow. Mediocre experience.

Ask for antipasto, first course, second course and dessert, otherwise you will starve.
