Fantastic delicacies and where to find them:
a careful selection of places we love

Trattoria Calianna

Was opened in Laveno Mombello in 1983 on the ashes of an old Lavenese inn. The cuisine is rigorously homemade and based on seasonal products chosen with care directly by the owner and cook Brigida.

Love for a healthy and traditional cuisine and continuous search for typical Italian flavors are constant elements of their way of working. Here you will find a comfortable and familiar environment where you can enjoy dishes of the Mediterranean cuisine characterized by a strong southern imprint given the origins of the cook, but there are also typical dishes of the area such as perch risotto or polenta. Reservation is welcomed.

La Casera

"The bottega with the tables", that's how Eros presents the tasting space within his company. Because "La Casera", from March 16, 2012 is also an opportunity to taste the best products directly in the shop. In the premises of "La Casera" you can find, buy, taste the great selection of products typically related to these areas. The proposal is also enriched by the very accurate selection of wines that, starting from the Piedmontese tradition, ranges to the most valuable national and foreign productions with particular attention to small productions. There is no lack of fresh and tasty local bread and desserts from the best recipes of the Piedmontese pastry tradition.
