Worth a Visit

This was a 10min cab ride from Como. Very old world atmosphere. Appeared to be quite a few locals/Italians eating here which is always a good sign. Excellent menu and would definitely recommend for a special occasion.

This was our best meal for a while & definitely the best in our Italian trip this time. This trattoria was run by a family in a converted former community hall away from Cernobbio centre & Villa D'Este(20Euro taxi away up the hills). All dishes were very well prepared with the freshest produce, the standouts were many: all pasta dishes,... More

This restaurant is not easy to find but the internals of the restaurant are lovely and the service very attentive. But having eaten elsewhere in Cernobbioa it came third out of the three places we visited on menu extensivity, quality of food and price. The courses were probably too complicated and needed quite a bit of seasoning to add taste.... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful restaurants in the area. Large rooms, but intimate at the same time, with gorgeous views. You can sense the love that the owners put into the place and by the kind, friendly smiles and care taken by the lady at the front who sat us and by the chef who came... More

This place is a MUST visit if you are visiting Como. Situated in the higher part of Cernobbio (10 minutes car from centre of Como), you can actually have a nice view on the lake which is spectacular on clear sunny days and stone cold winter nights. Having said that, if the weather isn't appealing then this place will definetely... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the villa d'este and it was a great tip. Located in the hills in a residential area it would be hard to find ( and harder to drive the narrow twisting road) without a local driver. It is a family owned and operated restaurant. The family/staff were all delightful and the food... More

We visited on a Thursday night when it was relatively quiet. The food and the wine selection was excellent - the waiter/sommelier spoke with us for about 10 minutes about the local wines and it was obvious he had a real passion and knowledge of the wines in the region. All food impressed and the wine was very good. A... More

It is always a thrill to walk into a place with very little expectation and be blown away. This was our experience of this gem of a Trattoria. The food was delicious with a menu that read so well it was hard to choose. We over ordered as a result but cleaned up every last morsel of deliciousness. Service was... More

We went to this restauran with a friend recommendation and we really enjoyed the food, service, people and view. It was such a nice experience. First of all, you can see the owners have definitely thought it thru to create a nice atmosphere by the decoration. On the food, we had shared all the food we ordered and it gave... More
