We went there for lunch and as we started looking at the menu we were told that if we ordered a la carte, it would take much longer so we decided to go for the fixed menu of the day. We waited for our food...More

Excellent small restaurant. Nice food, really friendly service, mind the translation on the menu, but if you ever have been in an italian restaurant, you will find your way around.

Despite having made a reservation, two parties of three (without reservations !) were seated before me. I was then told a table was available on the terrace where I could only have coffee. This type of treatment is unfortuanely not uncommon for solo diners around...More

Great find! Visiting for the day, we went to the market and then for lunch here. This is a warm, friendly place, the family owners were very hospitable. We had a party of 10, the food and service was superb, we will be back!

We stopped here on the way home. Even though the staff was kind, the service was incredibly slow. Important to say that the restaurant was not crowded at all. Nevertheless, about 20 minutes just to place the order. Then half an hour to get the...More

Sito nel romantico angolo di Domodossola, la Trattoria La Motta si trova proprio in piazza Fontana dove arte, cultura e storia si fondono per regalare magiche atmosfere in un luogo fuori dal tempo.Piccina, raccolta, trasmette un senso di intimità e piena convivialità in una zona pedonale recentemente restaurata. Le due sale rispecchiano il passare del tempo, il camino seicentesco scalda l'atmosfera e la giovane età dei proprietari dona all'arredo la freschezza della novità. Possibilità di mangiare fuori nella completa tranquillità e coccolati dal ruomre della fontana.Il RistoranteUn servizio raffinato, la gestione famigliare e la continua ricerca dona all'ensemble delle proposte per accontentare qualsiasi palato, con piatti che spaziano dalla tradizione locale agli accostamenti più arditi, redatto con fantasia e buon gusto dallo chef/papà Alberto.Altrettanto fantasiosa e interessante è la lista dei vini, con una simpatica curiosità su ogni bottiglia raccogliendo un'ottima selezione di Rossi, Bianchi e perchè no, anche un pò di Bollicine.Come TrovarciSe il fiuto non vi inganna, non sarà difficile farsi trasportare...ma per i più premurosi non rimane che cercare l'imponente chiesa dedicata ai Santi Gervasio e Protasio, patroni della città e allungare lo sguardo verso le magnifiche balconate medioevali, proprio lì: ci saremo noi con un aperitivo pronto ad accogliervi.
