Very good food in a beautiful location on the banks of Lake Como at Cernobbio. Excellent, friendly service and lots of fun!

The waiter had had a long busy day and was not shy about letting us know this when our party of four enquired if we could dine one evening. For such a top location, over looking Lake Como, the food and service were less than satisfying. The pasta meals looked and tasted like supermarket frozen take home and microwave dishes.... More

We went for lunch to this restaurant which is well located in front of Come Lake thniking we would have a nice, simple meal. As soon as we sat at a table on the terrace, the owner came to tell our two (quiet) children to be careful with the tablecloth...quite surprising as a welcome word. Then we ordered water, and...

We chose the restaurant because of its beautiful location on the water for a light lunch. From the start the waiter was rude. He clearly wanted us to chose one of the specials of the day and when two of us chose pizza he was dismissive and incredibly rude. Although the two pasta dishes and the pizza were fine they... More

Went here for lunch today and ended up leaving before we had ordered. Waiter was rude obviously not happy that we only wanted pizzas (so why do they offer them?) and told us we couldn't have side salads as they only came with main courses and we hadn't ordered any! Will not go back. Plenty of other great places to... More

It was at 6PM and we asked for food. The waiter was polite and mentioned that he can offer only "primi piati". We ordered penne con prosciuto and tagliatelle con gamberi. Both good! The beer from tap was just ok, as were the deserts: nocciolla. A head waiter noticed our interest in the birds on the outdoor grass and explained... More

We stopped by for a quick lunch - wanting just a pizza to share between two...the very rude waiter tried to upsell us (as he did to the a nearby table) .. when they bought the pizza, it was the wrong one. Also ordered a beer which was flat (from the tap) and when we complained, again, just rude service.... More

Extremely disappointing restaraunt, I am not normally overly fussy, but when a restaraunt tries to take you for a ride and take advantage of you being a tourist, it gives me good grounds for complaining! Great location, looking out over Lake Como and quite pleasant sat outside. Waiters were at first friendly, but when they brought our meals one of... More
