Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a reservation for 6.30pm and showed up at 6.40pm as we had to look for a parking lot. Our table was gone and there was no other table available. I fully understand that they want to give the tables in busy times, however...to keep the table for 15 minutes for a reservation should be a must. If not, then just don’t accept any reservations in busy times. I obviously can‘t comment on the food and for sure won‘t come back after this negative experience.More

A small, easy to miss restaurant in a little steep alley off the beaten tracks. Extremely friendly staff. Welcoming and helpful. We chose the pulpo which was very tasty as was the mixed salad. As main dishes we took the lemon ravioli and a fish...dish. Both again simple but prepared in the best way possible. Add to it a very surprising Rose from Nebbiolo and Dolcetto. The desert and perfect expressi rounded the whole. A gem, and a must when in Cannobio.More

First of all, THIS is the place you must visit for a delicious dinner in Cannobio. It‘s the only place to get the most warm welcome, friendly staff and delicious food in town. The start with a nice glass of prosecco, an amazing appetizer of...Polpo Patate and a delicious dish of Entrecote, simply amazing! Excellent finish with a Torroncino - so their menu is a delight, period. Service is super friendly and nice. Winelist is great, for very fair prices. So don‘t go anywhere else except here, this is THE place and trust me - I have been to all the places in Cannobio for years. Thank you dear Ale & Vale team for this perfect dinner night 🙏👍🏻More

We were able to snag a table for lunch, thank goodness. I had the octopus salad and roast beef salad. My favorite meal while we were in the Lake Maggiore area! The young octopus was like butter. The roast beef was perfectly cooked medium rare...and sliced very thin. This family restaurant is well known for their pasta, but alas I am gluten free. I highly recommend this restaurant, but don't come expecting a lake view...come for the food!More

These folks love and know all about local Italian food and so clearly passionate about it. We were lucky to get the one cancellation so book ahead to avoid disappointment. All the dishes were done to perfection with local ingredients and clearly done with love...and affection.More

We are indebted to a recommendation from the Receptionist @ Hotel Pironi (see separate review) for finding this little gem. A Sunday, Market in Town and people everywhere. Only 50 metres back from the Market / Lake, but a Haven of peace and tranquility. Home...made Pasta, great service and wonderful food. My wife and I shared two dishes, Ravioli stuffed with Walnuts and another Ravioli dish but served with tomatoes, black olives and lots of garlic. Truly superb. We are much travelled and have always loved Italian food, but these two, simple, dishes are amongst the finest we have ever had the good fortune to savour. No room for Dessert, so just two cups of Macciato to finish. We thanked the Chef and his staff profusely and said the hotel had recommended him. His response was interesting, "we don't work with any hotels, we work for YOU our Customers". What a fine philosophy, no wonder his restaurant is 1st from 51 in Collobio. Hayling SeagoonMore

We stayed in Cannobio 8 nights in SEP 2021 and ate here, unfortunately, on our seventh night. We went back for our last dinner on our 8th night. The food is amazing, reasonably priced, and carefully prepared. We had two different pastas, the lamb chops,...and a fish plate. All were excellent. The deserts are not to be missed as a perfect ending. Great local wines by the glass or bottle. The atmosphere is quaint, quiet, and homey. The manager and the staff really work hard to make the experience wonderful. I’m afraid we would have e eaten here all 8 nights had we discovered it sooner. Be sure to make a reservation a day in advance as they are not huge and they do not want to compromise on quality.More

We enjoyed a fantastic dinner here. Pizza, Pasta and Seafood were top-notch!! Definitely the best trattoria in Cannobio and very reasonable prices. Make sure to book a table in advance - super busy and usually completely full.
