Unfortunately, whilst the reviews are great and the location is great (if off the beaten track), when we visited in mid-August 2015, it was clear the restaurant has now been closed for some time :-(

We ate here twice on our trip to Baveno. One of the party had seafood which was excellent and very fresh, whilst the rest of us had pizzas. These were freshly cooked in the wood fired oven and were thin, crispy and very good. The staff were very friendly and good humoured.

With positive expectations back at this restaurant at the end of season on 6th of september. I think business has been dificult due to bad weather season. We ended up sharing some dishes because supply was sold out. That's ok for fresh fish or so.... but meat?......and potatoes? Also one of the owners (Giuseppe?)was not involved anymore. Staff remains friendly... More

It was a perfect simple dinner at the Ristorante da Giovanni e Giuseppe. The restaurant is located within 10 min walk from the place we stayed in Baveno. I wish we discovered it sooner! We ordered two different types of pizza (the wood fired oven) - Margarita & Vegetarian, and both of them were very good. A simple desert: Chocolate... More

It was like walking into something from another decade... without trying. That said the food was good and the staff very friendly. If all you want is a good meal then this is the place.

we arrived late in the night; we had some trouble to find the place but the hospitality of the owners, the prices and the perfect balance of some dishes makes this restaurant a good choice if you are in Baveno. You will find well cooked dinner, friendly cosy environment, nice local wine, perfect nioci and pizzas

We found this lovely little restaurant recently while completing a local walk from Baveno and stopped to have a coffee. We returned today for a lunchtime meal, where we ate seafood, which is a speciality of the house and one of the chef's specials. My wife's grilled prawns were huge and a generous portion size - in her words "fantastico",... More

We were recommended to try this restaurant by the owners of the B&B where we staying , we manage to find it after a bit of driving around, parking is located further down the road from the restaurant. Sadly we don't speak Italian, but we received a very warm welcome from the owners and language was not a barrier. We... More

We chose this restaurant based on recommendations from Trip Advisor & were very happy with the meal. We are staying in Stresa and were getting rather bored of the standard tourist options available locally so decided to give Giovanni's a try. In short the pizzas available here were much better than other highly rated restaurants in Stresa. We started with... More

Superb traditional Italian restaurant used by locals and only expensive if you want it to be. It is a short walk away off the main lake side promenade in Baveno. Certainly well worth a visit; the owners and staff are very warm and friendly and the food is excellent. This restaurant is well worth a visit and deserves the Trip... More
