As others have said, it is very popular with the locals. And I was with a local who swears it is the best pizza in the whole area ( we drove 30 minutes just to go there). I do recommend a reservation and it does help if you speak a little Italian....but not necessary. If you are in this area, it is well worth going here for pizza - if the weather is nice, sit outside because there are lovely views over Lake Orta!

We went to Berimbao three times on our holiday at the end of August, and had a very mixed experience. The first was on a rainy Monday, it was one of few places to open on Monday, there were few people because of the weather, the food was great, and service helpful and very attentive. We then came without a reservation on Thursday, were given a table but it was very busy and short staffed, it took us ages to get service, and one of our mains, a pizza, came 30 mins later than the rest of the food - and we had to keep asking when it was coming! Seeing that the food was still very good, we took a chance to make a reservation for Saturday, in the hope that this should give better service. Sadly this was not the case. Again the restaurant was extremely busy, which should be a good sign, but only 3 people were serving and saying that they didn't know when the orders would arrive because it was so busy! We waited 40 mins for our starter, and when I finally went to ask the waitress where it was, she said it wasn't available. During the time we waited for the starter, we were brought one of the orders, again a pizza (what else would a teenager order in a pizza place?!), the rest came almost an hour since we ordered. A very disjointed experience. The waitresses were short staffed and seemed stressed, and there aren't enough cooks either to cope with around 100 guests. Go there if you'd like good food and not too bothered about time or quality of service, or it's a quiet day / out of season. Such a shame because the food is actually very good, not only pizzas but pastas, fish, etc. The view of the lake from the terrace is nice too. They need to improve on staffing and service, and it would be excellent.

We visited Berimbao last night. We hadn't booked a table but were quickly shown offered a choice of 2 on the terrace. The restaurant was very busy and obviously popular with the locals. We ordered our meals and some bruschetta to start. The starter arrived quickly and was delicious. Our mains arrived separately, I had ordered the mussels in a tomato sauce, which I would highly recommend. My husband had decided to try the Calzone. This arrived a few minutes later but the food inside was cold, particular the mushrooms, which appeared to be tinned and not fresh. We complained and it was returned to the kitchen. The waitress appeared and stated a new one was being made, at no point was an apology offered. I finished my meal and then we waited for my husbands dish to arrive, which it did some time later. The Calzone was average at best. We asked for the bill, paid and left. Such a shame when restaurants do not take the time to address complaints, offering no apology or reduction to a bill is, in our opinion, very poor. Our meal was very dis-jointed and as such I would not recommend this place, the experience for us was very disappointing.

Very pleasant eating out on their terrace, and the pizza was excellent.
Check opening times - they were closed on the Tuesday we first tried to eat there.
