My grandmother was born in Santa Maria Maggiore in the 1880's. We visited looking for roots. By chance we ate meal at Le Colonne. At age 70 you can imagine how many meals we have eaten in our lives. This simply was the BEST, most original, most delectable food we have ever eaten anywhere! Thank you for the treat. Elizabeth Rassiga, Reno, Nevada

We decided to come to Santa Maria Maggiore because it would be cooler than Valle VIgezzo. Well, a little bit yes. We reserved a table at Le Colonne for lunch because it got good reviews. And they are well deserved. First, the restaurant was cool and quiet. Those eating here were savoring their food, as we did. The presentation was excellent, the flavors perfect, and an excellent slow food experience. Our good friend Rosaria spoke with the Chef and maître d' and then described everything to us. And all the food had its origins in Valle Vigezzo, of course.

Le Colonne is a must if you are travelling between Domodossola (I) and Locarno (CH) in Val Vigezzo (a.k.a. known as Centovalli). As testified by the comments on Le Colonne predominantly being written in Italian, this is a restaurant favored by the Italians as opposed to those restaurants mostly attracting foreign tourists. And yes, this a 'ristorante', not a 'trattoria' or a 'pizzeria'. The menu includes excellent, less common items. The salad with rabbit tenderloin as a first course was simply great. Veal cheek as a main course had been prepared superbly tender and delicious. Bread selection is also beyond the usual, including black grissini and several other types of tasty bread made in-house. I was met with very attentive and friendly service. Despite the rain pouring for several hours the evening I visited Le Colonne, the townsfolk were also plenty. Considering the food, the wine, the service and the ambience, the prices are well in balance and a visit is most recommended.
