We had Rissoto ai Fungi Porcine for dinner that was delicious. The staff was very friendly. They had many choices of different foods, including pizza that looked great.

This should be higher in the trip advisor ratings. Based on ta reviews we were not expecting a lot, but were pleasantly surprised. Staff were friendly and welcoming and spoke good English. Wide ranging menu, with lots of unusual pizza toppings; I had pear, gorgonzola and walnut and my husband had sausage and chips ( on top of a pizza!).... More

The restaurant is located near the city center. Clean and tidy. The food is good and prices are reasonable. Good service. We enjoyed dinner very much. You should book in advance, otherwise there is a chance that there will not be a free table.

All we had was the house salad and pizza but it was just fine for us. No it wasn't the best pizza or salad I ever had but every thing was tasty and fresh. The service was friendly and helpful. We weren't expecting fine dining, just a fairly priced basic lunch so all in all, job done.

We decided to stop in at this little place after some people on our tour made a recommendation. When we arrived we had to wait a while as the restaurant was quite busy. What I noticed was for all the tables they were serving, there were 2 girls working the entire room, and Oh Boy! did they ever do an... More

Based on reviews on tripadvisor we were expecting a nice dinner. We were very disappointed with the food. The mushroom soup tasted from a can, the pasta was bad and one pasta (mushroom) was so bad we had to return it. The service was terrible and at the end we were surprised that we were billed for the returned dish.... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant with another couple and it turned out to be one of the best meals we had in our 11 day stay in the lake region. We ate several kinds of pizzas, pasta with loads of seafood, veal Milanese, tortellini, and all sorts of deserts. It was a 2 plus hour food fest... More

It is so hard to find decent restaurants in the touristic parts of Lake Maggiore, and Baveno is no exception. My husband and I recently spent a week there, and after trying various restaurants in Bavena, Stresa, etc., we ended up coming back again and again to La Trappola because of its good food. We had pizza at lunch, seafood... More
