Well worth a visit!

We were traveling as a Group, so we had a set menu. The ambience and garden setting is magnificent. Apparently this restaurant has been in their family for 120 years. Food presentation and service was very good. The highlight for me was dessert. Well worth a visit.

Though we enjoyed our experience at this restaurant, what is outstanding is the helpfulness and attention from the very personable owners as well as their staff. The restaurant itself is beautiful and a delightful place to spend the evening. The food is good but not great.

No trip to Como would be complete without dinner at Navedano. Our las visit was in October 2014 and we're looking forward to our next visit next week in October 2015. The food, the flowers and the staff attention to elegant detail make this a 5 star experience.

We travel the world and live in NYC. I can attest that this is one restaurant you must visit. Great food, first class service and the owners make you feel like guests in their own home. So attentive and they work their magic to make you feel so comfortable and welcome. A dish as simple as minestrone soup is taken... More

Both my wife and I came away from Navedano disappointed . Perhaps our expectations were too high given what we had been told about the restaurant . For sure the welcome was demonstrative but lacked warmth . Again there was nothing wrong with the overall service but just not the level of attention required between the courses . The food... More

We went for lunch and had a wonderful surprise. The place is surrounded by green and it is like arriving to someone’s home and we were welcomed as personal guests!! We learned that this restaurant is more for diner but it worked great because we were the only ones having lunch and had all the attention. After lunch, we saw... More

This was one of the best restaurants we have ever been to.. We were greeted warmly by the family, and we felt like guests in a private home. Food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The setting and property were spectacular. A little out of the way and hard to find, but well worth the effort. A wonderful experience.

After a dismal dining experience at our very pricey resort, we were pleased to hear that we’d be dining this night at George Cloony’s favorite Italian restaurant. That’s nice of course, but I still needed to make up my own mind. That said, I am with George. Actually I’m not sure why Navedano is not more highly rated. The restaurant... More

Went to Navedano and it was an outstanding experience. Manager was truly amazing. The flower setup is something unique. I had a fillet in chestnut sauce, served in a plate with rose petals. Best fillet ever eaten in a restaurant. The dessert was one of the best of all times. If you are in the area, find this place.

If you want an impressive place to dine try this one. The food is truly amazing, the property is gorgeous and the staff is top notch. It seems to get better every time we visit.
