Grotto Carza - Ristorante e Bar

Reviewed By Richard C

We climbed Monte Carza near Lago Maggiore in the morning up a pretty path and then went looking for lunch but expected that we would have to return down the mountain for food. We decided to drive gingerly along some more windy mountain road just in case we found a cafe. Instead we found an excellent family restaurant serving traditional Italian country food. It has only recently reopened after a fire which destroyed it. The local community arranged to rebuild it and now it has started operating as a full restaurant which is family friendly. Indeed they are building an adventure playground. They offer a fixed menu with an ante pasta of local ham and a choice of pasta (I had the homemade pesto sauce) and a choice of a salad or a tasty slow cooked venison dish. All excellent. And a truly delicious chocolate tart with lovely homemade pannetone with coffee. The staff were really friendly and explained in good English what all the dishes were and how they were finishing the restaurant. We will return. Thank you for this beautiful review! So happy you came by and looking forward to meeting you again anytime soon.

Agriturismo Il Torchio

Reviewed By sergiixx

Agriturismo familiare, decoroso e gestito con cura. Piatti tipici della zona, buona la preparazione, ma non esprimono sapori indimenticabili. Il pane è anonimo, non ha carattere. Gli antipasti sono piuttosto curati, ma non mi hanno entusiasmato per autenticità e sapori. Tagliatelle con ragù invece di buon livello. Dolci interessanti. Servono vini decorosi di Alba e di San Colombano.

Locanda Garibaldi

Reviewed By Meghan J

With over 500 “excellent” reviews and a smattering of “terrible” my husband and I felt safe in choosing Locanda Garibaldi as a new dining location. Usually in these instances the few outlying bad reviews relate to very specific events…a customer felt slighted, the kitchen’s timing was off, the chef perhaps had a rare bad night, etc. However, I really wish we had read through the bad reviews (in Italian) because many of them have common elements, which perfectly capture our night as well.Menu (or lack thereof)There is no menu, and the owner Giuseppe comes over, sits down at your table, and basically suggests what you’ll have. (Note: My husband is Italian, and I speak Italian. I have no idea how this process would work with non-Italian speakers!) When asked for details about certain dishes, Giuseppe’s response (in a jovial way) was, “it’s delicious; don’t you trust me?” I didn’t feel in control at all over my dish selection; however, due to the positive reviews, I felt safe that I’d probably like what arrived.Food quality/priceIn fact, the food is good, but definitely “casalinga”…think more “Grandma’s cooking” rather than “contemporary cuisine.” There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a good home-style dish, but I don’t think it warrants the prices charged. In regard to pricing, that too seemed very informal. Without a menu, you can’t be certain that your bill wasn’t influenced (positively or negatively) by how well you clicked with the owner.Service(This is THE “make or break” element.) As mentioned in other reviews, the owner Giuseppe makes a point to sit down and chat with his customers. And, in fact, after we had finished our meal, Giuseppe returned to our table, sat down and proceeded to talk for at least 20 minutes! By the time he was finished, it was getting late, and we decided to go. I felt what could have been a quiet evening with my husband turned into a table for three.I fully concede that many of the positive reviews are based on exactly the “friendly and warm” demeanor of the owners. So I’d say if you’re the gregarious type who loves (extended) banter with your host, this may be your place. If, like us, you prefer friendly but reserved service and straightforward selection and pricing, I would not recommend Locanda Garibaldi. I wish Giuseppe well, and I appreciate his passion for his work, but this just wasn't our type of place.
