I just discovered this place with a friend of mine and I was amazed by the quality of food and the quiet place. I've never been here but it is really a great place to hang out with friends or in its separate first floor room to take your girlfriend.

We had a break from work and strolled down to the water front. Popped in and had an espresso. It was great-Great service, great ambience-the epitome of northern Italy. Highly recommend it.

Excellent! You find lots of good restaurants in Italy, but this is unique! Try, it's worthy the money (60 Eur/head, wine included).

I was invited there to have dinner with some italian friends the previous Sunday. I liked that place from the first moment l entered in the reception hall. Very warm, smelled very nice. It is actually an old house with small rooms. Big wooden beams on the ceiling, a fireplace and inspired decoration. The food was exellent, l also tasted... More

Very traditional menu, with dishes typical of the area. My first time trying Asino (Donkey) and it was quite good, to the point that I would have it again, but preferably here at Commercianti. Parking can be a little difficult, but even if you have to walk 5 minutes, this place is worth it. The locals in the know come... More

I found this restaurant through Trip Advisor because it was one of the highest-rated in town and I certainly agree with the reviewers. The service is very attentive and generous- I was brought extra tastes in addition to what I had ordered. Well prepared, quality, local ingredients and Novarese/Piemontese recipes and a substantial wine list, a romantic atmosphere but comfortable... More

We have visited this restaurant every time we have been in the area for the last 7 years or so, often twice in rapid succession. The atmosphere is intimate, the service exemplary and charming, the wine list long, interesting and better than reasonable - indeed the prices overall are a bargain. What really sets this place apart is the deftness... More

If you are looking for a romantic spot where you can taste the real flavour of the food of the province of Novara, this is the spot. it is located in the middle of Borgomanero, actually close to a bar I used to go in my school years. I believe it 's an old house converted to a restaurant. Good... More

The porcini mushroom season is in full swing and this trattoria had a page in their menu dedicated to this delicacy. It was amazing. Very fresh, homemade pasta with fresh porcini, so simple and so much flavor. The recommended slow cooked donkey was good, but lacked the wow factor. It was very intimate trattoria, not the simple family style. They... More

This restaurant works on so many levels, I could go here many times and never get bored. Authentic Italian food that's been refined to produce mouth watering food. The staffs knowledge on wine is brilliant. Just go there.
