When you mention Belgirate to Maggiore Lake regular goers, you’ll see they are overcome with emotion. Stresa and the Borromee Islands with their lively social life and their natural beauties are nearby. In addition, there is the nearby Mottarone Mount where you can enjoy pleasant walks, and the Campo dei Fiori Park - an extraordinary background. That’s the outstanding setting you will enjoy on for over a century. Mariella Mugnai, the landlady, warmly welcomes her guests, indeed.
Buon Ricordo speciality
Ravioli alla trota salmonata
You will be impressed by this dish for its pastel shades and the intensity of its taste the same shades of our lake scenery. The main ingredient is the salmon trout with its pinkish fleshy pulp that is used both for the ravioli filling mixed with chive and the sauce made with shallot, sweet marjoram, and tomato. Alternatively, ravioli can be served with butter, sage, and a pinch of sweet marjoram. A glass of Erbaluce from the Colline Novaresi perfectly copes with this dish.
