It was my 5th visit at the Glicine and the owners and chef are just becoming better and better. I have decided to write a review after I took American guests to eat at the Glicine and, once more, it was an excellent dining experience all together. One of the guests needed gluten free food and there was so much... More

Man can these people cook. the food was amazing and my wife had the most amazing truffle pasta, the only downside is that it is a little bit pricey so be prepared, but if you are a foodie and you are in the Como area you have to eat at least once here.

We stop by while we were travelling around, and we were surprised with a great meal. We have ordered risotto and ravioli, and both meals were tasty, well done and simply enjoyable :) The only issue is that there are not so much parking spots which might be a challenge..

Excellent food with wonderful service. We went on a rainy day with kids and we all enjoyed a long lunch. There was no rush to leave. Beautifully cooked regional food. Reccomend taking a taxi from boat ferry but walk down. Bookings advisable as always busy. Enchanting setting

Myself and my husband dined here in September, it was beautiful. The staff were helpful and polite. The food was amazing. It is worth a visit, and we would rush back when we return to Como.

This is a great restaurant, faultless. Location is absolutely spot on in a quiet area beside hotel Asnigo up in the hills from the main town. Food quality is five star, service equally so. Friendly helpful staff and they should be proud of their establishment. Very much recommended.

Perched atop the Cernobbian hills, this restaurant is a fine example of why it pays to venture off the beaten path. Great regional cuisine, light and delicious - and relatively inexpensive. Pur choice was the ho,e made past with the rabbit ragu - superb - as well as the ravioli with porcini mushrooms - excellent. The starter - tuna tartare... More

Near the Hotel Asnigo above Cernobbio. Wonderful food and service. We had the tuna in red sauce with pasta, a salad, and Sicilian wine. Salad was very tender, recommended wine was perfect! Pasta and sauce were a delight! The best meal we had in Italy! The restaurant is up a flight of steps behind a gate you must open. At... More
