Good country fare

An interesting place. Not at all fancy, but good Italian country style food. The salume plate consisted of donkey, horse and venison sausages. All excellent. Tried the beef, venison and sausage stews - all served with excellent polenta. Very tasty. Suggest this as an alternative to the main... read more

We had been for a bit of a stroll in the nearby hills, an interesting trip, and on the way back in the afternoon we were looking out for a late lunch. We were fortunate to find the Chalet Gabriele. It was not particularly busy, the service was good and the food was delicious. There is an extensive menu with... More

You can experience a great view from this restaurant and a good polenta. It's a very popular place and sometimes quality depends from the number of people inside. I suggest to ask a table in the upper floor and not in the basement.

Just a quick walk up the road from the Jungle Raider Park where I was headed with my son. Came across it by chance, and was happily surprised. Midweek, and the restaurant filled up very quickly. It is August though. The decor is pleasant as was the service. The location, surrounded by green luscious flora and through the gaps lovely... More

To enjoy this restaurant a car is almost a necessity as it is located about 15 minutes from Bellagio at the bottom of San Primo in a little village called Piano Rancio. We booked a table for 15 and there were other tables with bookings of similar numbers. The chalet can seat around 150 people both upstairs and downstairs. The... More

We have Italian friends that live on the shores of Lake Como and they had been telling us about this restaurant for quite some time. This time around we got them to drive us there and it was well worth it. The dishes we had with polenta were all great. The polenta served was not the liquidy type that is... More

Although I am not a great lover of Polenta dishes this is a lovely restaurant, long steep drive to get to it but the view from the panoramic windows is wonderful. Faultless, friendly and fast service. If you're into Polenta you'll love it, if not choose a dish with meat in it :)
