Pizza? Yes, great. But fish? Excellent

Been there several times and my favorite dish, the mixed seafood appetizer, is always great, especially the smoked items. You can enjoy that with some white focaccia and maybe some of their house white wine (mosso, or moderately bubbly). As main course we had branzino (sea-bass) with artichokes... read more

Went there several times and this last time it really deserved 5 stars. The tuna tartare appetizer was perfect. The seafood appetizer good as always. Nice inexpensive house wire wine, un poco mosso. Had some pizza (probably a 4 stars). The focaccia is so good, and adds value and flavor to all dishes. Grilled shrimps were simply great, will certainly... More

This is our favourite restaurant in the area, run by three brothers who are always welcoming. Good food, served quickly. Highly recommended.

We visited the place twice during our one week stay in Lago di Como. The anti-pasta, the pastas and main fish dishes were exceptional. Special typical Italian deserts, friendly atmosphere. Reasonable price.

Tipical restaurant family owned. By entering you probably will start in thinking to go away, due to the anonymous visual impact. The forniture is old and the general feeling is remembering restaurants of 70's. The outdoor seating impact is absolutely negative, with a green old plastic roof. Bytheway, this restaurant is always full (it's better to book before) and that's... More

We found this place trying to avoid having to eat dinner in Switzerland so this is a great option to stop by and having an Italian meal before crossing the border. We were there quite early but by the time we left there were lots of locals placing orders. My gorgonzola spaghetti was faultless and all others were perfectly happy... More

Food is always good, prices are reasonable. Specialized in fish, but their vegetables antipasto and their pizza are also excellent. Family held.. All with a smile. Very basic and not nice decor... But go there for the food....

This is about as family owned Italian as it gets. Mostly frequented by locals, the pizzeria's shortcoming is a lack of ability to speak English, but really, if you can't understand the few basic words needed to order a pizza in Italian, you probably shouldn't be in Italy in the first place. Elementary vocabulary and sign language works just fine,... More

This pizzeria/restaurant is not elegant, but you can get the best pizza in Cernobbio. Also the seafood is well prepared ; In fact the owners are Sicilian and they know very well how to purchase and prepare it. They have not a large wine selection, but what they have is good and not too expensive (for fisf I would recommend... More
