“One of the Best in Baveno”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Baveno is not a big town and so the choice of restaurants is limited. Tried La Ripa based on Tripadvisor rating and it did not disappoint. The restaurant/hotel is a few minutes walk from town square along the main road. Decoration is quaint and homely. Service was personal and friendly. We were served a glass of rose as soon as we sat down. Food was very good and portions were huge. We are not big eaters and theoretically one entrée is enough for two people. We did not order the typical Italian desert and went for the "apple muffin" which was surprising good, with big chunks of apple inside.

“Great food - compliments to the chef”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

If you want to have a nice dinner with great view of the Borromeo Islands, delicious rose wine - book a table at La Ripa. You can order lake or sea fish - everything is great (and huge). The home rose wine is so tasty, you can drink it every day.

“Wonderful Lakeside Restaurant”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

My husband and I ate here one evening based on the warm recommendation of our hotel proprietors in Stresa.. We were joined by friends of ours and were looking for a nice, quiet evening with good food. This restaurant met all of our expectations. The restaurant belongs to a hotel of the same name, and it is situated at the back of the hotel in the gardens overlooking Lake Maggiore. The views from the restaurant at night are amazing and very romantic. The waiter was happy to assist us in choosing from the menu, and everything we ate was amazing! Three of us ordered sirloin steak, which was huge, and my husband had fish. We all enjoyed our meal tremendously and were in no hurry to get up an go. It was such a relaxing evening. The price was not cheap, but the quality more than made up for it. Highly recommended.

“Good food, service, and lovely views. Not cheap but worth it.”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

My wife and I ate here twice during our stay in Baveno. On neither occasion was it quite warm enough to sit fully outside in the lovely garden, but the semi covered area was nice, and the view over the lake excellent. Ideal for a nice romantic evening.
The food was excellent. While the service could be described as slow, I would prefer the description 'unhurried' allowing you time to enjoy the ambiance.
Not cheap, but this is a fairly expensive area anyway, and you get what you pay for. I think the fact that we returned for a second time is proof enough of the quality. Very enjoyable!

“Exclusive-feeling, refined”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

Discreet service, quiet (almost too quiet), good local fish. Fairly expensive but probably worth it.
