Description: The attractive landscape of the Alps, the ancient tradition of stone houses, the woods and the embrace of a quiet nature would be sufficient reasons to visit the typical restaurant Divin Porcello. Designed to preserve as much as possible the local traditional stone houses in the Ossola Valley, the place has been restored recently, creating eight distinct environments, each with its own atmosphere and features.You will immediately be won over by the unique flavors of our products and dishes, such as gnocchi Ossolana style. The most popular dish is the Lauscera, soapstone served table-side with baked potatoes and house sauces. Though it may seem typical, it is the symbol of our success: selected pork meat is cooked right at the table, on hot stone, and served in a compartments dish with roasted potatoes and sauces made from mayonnaise, curry, pepper, parsley and garlic. Our cellar will give you the pleasure of unforgettable tastings with wines selected by patron Sommelier Massimo. Divin Porcello is also production of salami, made with artisan techniques and great care.

We visited this restaurant July last year, but I still have the night clear in my mind. The location is probably not the most visited in the region, but this restaurant is definitely worth a detour itself. (The restaurant also rent out a few rooms. We were not aware, so we book an Airbnb close by instead).

It’s a family driven business and the atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable. The food is mainly local or even homemade. The service holds a Michelin standard even though the prices are still very resendable.

By the way, don’t forget to check out the family’s small whole sale down along the main road, before you leave the village next morning. There you can buy several of the delicious items from the night. To be more specific: Well aged ham, fantastic salami etc.

Strongly recommended!

First, the menu only exists in Italian, but that is a very minor detail.
Superb dinner and wine at very reasonable prices.
Will visit again!

We got picked up at the Domodossola train station by a complementary shuttle bus. We had the apero outside with a bottle of prosecco and dry meat platter. Delicious! After followed a scrumptious lunch and great wine. They have a good wine selection. We finished off with espressos outside before the bus took as back for our train.
