We visited Baveno for 4 days and ate at Il Portico every night. We loved the people and the food. The service was great and no one ever rushed us through dinner.

If you love meat, try the "Grilled Meat Platter" , but ready to eat alot.

We are at Il Portico on our first night in Baveno. It is predominantly a Pizza restauarant, there are a few other dishes on the menu, not a huge selection. We both ordered Pizza, it was ok - the downside was the amount of Mozzarella - far too much, made it very greasy. Did not compare to Pizza's in other local establishments or takeaways.
There is outside seating but it is directly on a busy main road.

We visited Lakes Maggiore, Como and Garda in July 2011 and this was by far our worst meal. The restaruant is right on the main road, but that was not the issue for us - the food was bland - I've had better frozen pizzas and the seafood pasta meal was equally uninspiring. The service was also underwhelming. Our view is that it's one to walk quickly past and try one of the many other options.

This became our 'stock' restaurant during our stay in Baveno. It's a shame that the busy main road detracts from sitting out the front but the service is friendly and the food is a cut above the more touristy outlets on the lakeside. There's a small 'service charge' automatically added to the bill.
