Nice Pizza. Friendly service, not rushed, did not complain that one of us did not order anything to eat (since he had eaten at a conference just before our visit). Good price.

We went there by chance, the food was good as well as the service. But the prices way too expensive, they charge us 2,30 euro for a decaf coffee, no way!!! So be careful, as you can find the same food for way less money!

A great restaurant to have lunch or dinner. From 4days in Baveno we had four meals there and were always completely satisfied. The day menus were all worth tasting, everyday a different fresh pasta was served and it tasted always very delicious. In fact it was worth much more than the price. Very good quality for the money. The personnel... More

Had lunch here. Like a previous reviewer I thought the bread may have been mouldy, however that was the only real downside. I had the veal scallopini in white wine & the sauce was to die for. Friends had the schnitzel and found it good, if a bit dry - but they put that down to the size of the... More

I rarely write reviews but feel compelled to write this as the food I was served tonight was awful and a health risk. My wife and I ordered the mixed meat grill. The main concern was the pork sausage was raw in the middle and the rest whilst cooked was of very poor quality from how it tasted. I did... More

We attended this restaurant for a friends birthday and we all could not have been happier with the choice. The service is polite, attentive and fast. There is a wide array of traditional dishes that have been modernised alongside the tasty pizza's that the restaurant has made a name off. I certainly recommend and I plan to return.

We found this across the road from our hotel - Dino - and liked it so much we have eaten there most nights. The bruschetta fantasia was our favourite starter and changed every night. The set menu changes daily and we tried it each time. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Will definitely recommend.
