Visited again for a second time with colleagues, a great setting with equally good food. Well worth a visit and only a few minutes from the lake with stunning views. Recommend the veal....beautiful.

I was there with my wife in June and this was the best dinner we had in Cernobbio. We shared a great home made foie gras then both had wonderful ravioli topped with porcini mushrooms and braised duck breast. The food was over the top and service was very warm, the ambiance is cozy. The wine list deserve a particular... More

On our wedding anniversary we had dinner in this family run restaurant. A friend of ours recommended the place and it was worth to try. The staff was very kind and Mario the owner and also the chef of the restaurant welcomed us personally. We had a bit of a friendly chat which made our stay even more unforgettable. On... More

Had a really nice meal here while staying nearby. The waiter was extremely helpful choosing wines, the rabbit with pasta was cooked well, and tasty. The artichoke salad with shaved Parmesan was refreshing, light, and delicious. The entrees of duck with an orange sauce was perfectly cooked, with a really nice sauce and tasty potatoes. The swordfish was the best... More

We dined at this restaurant this evening and it was lovely. The terrace is beautiful with a magnificent 159 year old wisteria rambling over it. The staff were very pleasant and the food was delicious and there is an extensive wine list. The boss man Mario Pozzi welcomed everyone personally. It was reasonably expensive but we thought worth it compared... More

First impression was good and starters were great but with a 40 minutes wait. Main course sounded promising but after another 40 minutes wait our Pasquetta main meal was ice cold making it a very disappointing experience. Cold dish and wine we're not charged thankfully.

I live not far from the Trattoria del Glicine, and I often go there for dinner. I like it especially in winter, because I find their cooking, and the atmosphere, and the furniture, are more suited to the cold months. If you can, I suggest you to avoid saturday, because sometime on saturday the restaurant can be crowded and noisy.... More

Best osso buco and risotto! Dinner was very delicious - we had a car bring us from the villa d'este and the restauraunt called when we were ready to be picked up. While there were a few tourists many appeared to be regulars. Service was very good and food and wine was wonderful. Highly recommend.

Quite a way from the main tourist attraction the trattoria is very typical to serve the transatlantic taste. You will enjoy the very attentive staff and the menu with "local" specialities - even the sweet water fish. Choose any dish from the menu and you will be happy both with taste and artistic serving

We booked this for our wedding anniversary because of Trip Advisor reviews & were not disappointed. Friends had recommended Catto Nero but due to the very differing views we went with this one due to the consistently positive comments here. Food was incredible, nothing über fancy but the chef seems to know flavours & how to combine them well. Home... More
