Food was amazing, service was second to none! Prices are good. Wine delicious, beautiful location, we ate there the night our friends got married, then went back for my 30th birthday. LOVED IT!!!

This place occupies a prime position near the edge of Lake Como, in Cernobbio. It was hospitable enough but we found the cuisine to be below average (for Italy or anywhere else that serves Italian food), and quite expensive too. Price would not be a problem were the cuisine somewhat better. Wine-list was varied but with very few medium-priced wines.

Located beside the lake this "bar" is in fact a restaurant and night and café by day. Given its location it has the monopoly and attracts plenty of custom unfortunately for this reason the staff appear to have become complacent and have very little patience and manners. One of very very few place I've visited where there is no menu,... More

We went to Harry's bar recently just for a light lunch. We wanted to sit in the shade but they refused to let us sit at a table meant for 4 (we were 2 people) which was in the shade and had to wait until they messed around with a parasol to give us a table for 2. We only... More

The food was very good! The atmosphere was very nice as was the service. The problem is that, if you sit outside, you'll have smokers around you. Inside, it was rather hot. Still, I would not mind eating there again:)

Beautifully located on a square overlooking the harbour and all passers-by! The perfect place for an evening drink as the sun settles. So enjoyable (also on account of the many snacks served with the drinks) that one then asks whether there is still a table available for dinner.. Dinner itself is excellent, with some traditional dishes, but some that are... More

The location and lake views are great. Not too many choices in Cernobbio, the food was ok and priced high due to its proximity to Villa D' Este and they know the room rates there. Our waitress had a great sense of humor and the people watching made for a very enjoyable lunch.

Four of us had a pre-dinner drink prior to having dinner here. The meals were excellent, the staff were efficient and the manager treated us like VIP. The costs were not outrageous for what we received. Entertainment (music) occurred later in the night. Great atmosphere.

Terrible service. There's so many nicer places in the area with much better service. They're rude with a real no-can-do attitude.
