We landed by chance in this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by the establishment, the large garden and the food. The staff was good, welcoming and spoke English well. We've enjoyed our fish dish and pistachio pasta in a nice surrounding with the view on the relaxing lawn and pond. The home made ice cream was lovely. I wouldn't mind... More

We stayed here on the second stage if a three stop family cycling trip around Lakes Como and Lugano. After a long uphill ride from Porlezza it was a delight to reach this beautiful property set among the serene countryside between the two lakes. The gardens and ponds are lovely. The rooms are large and extremely comfortable. Our room at... More

We are a Canadian family who travelled with another family on a cycling tour near Lake Como. Part of the tour spent 2 days in the mountains. I loved our two day stay at La Locanda del Notaio. The hotel was more like a like B & B than a hotel. The rooms were very clean and the service was... More

Twisty roads terminate at this nice little hotel thats serves expensive, but very nice, small portioned food. Would we go again....maybe. Would we eat there, probably with one eye on the cost. It is very nice and extremely peaceful and has an individual character of it's own. The gardens are lovely

This restaurant is over priced for the quality of food provided. They are trying to be 'Michelin star' quality, but fail miserably. The food was at best mediocre and the ambiance of the restaurant is nothing short of a disaster. Take my advice - eat in one of the local village restaurants!

The narrow roads of the ticino region can be unsettling in the night, expecially with a full size car. But we arrived there without a dent. The hotel is small and welcoming, the crew friendly and the food delicious (one Michelin star). Only the breakfast is italian style: No great buffet, a simple affair, compared to the multi course dinner.... More

We found the hotel, especially the restaurant, to be lacking in atmosphere. The staff had a good comprehension of English and certainly the reception staff were helpful if not rather amateurish. It is cleanly kept. The restaurant staff appeared inexperienced and certainly the menu was limited and not of the high standard that the hotel like you to believe. It... More

This hotel is situated in a very quiet location in the mountains about 15/20 mins between Como and Lugano. It's small, in beautiful gardens, with magnificent mountain views. There is a famous goldfcourse next door and you can go riding if you wish (no swimming pool at the hotel). It's very peaceful and a good spot from which to explore... More

We stayed there for one night on our way back from Lago Maggiore to Switzerland. The staff is very friendly a speaks a good english. The room was comfortable, although this was a bit small and not really my style. The bathroom was large, modern and nice. The park looks really great and the breakfast outside was very good and...
