Lovely lunch and great view

Our 6th day here and hadn't been to this restaurant because no menu on display. However, decided to give it a go and the food was delicious! On the front by the lake, lunchtime so keeping it quite light. Pasta with aubergine and ricotta was utterly delicious and the Insalata Pollo very tasty with... read more

The house salad is a nice combination of surf and turf, presents a healthy choice and is filling. But it is not memorable. House white wine is OK. The patio area is spacious, but not too close to the water or where the action is. Service is OK, a bit on the slow side. For a quick lung, it is... More

short break from the boat, have a look around, coffee was good, place relaxed and inviting with a good view of the lake, it was between meals, so can't comment on the food, but the birds liked it, as they kept you company

This is the only place in Cernnobio and around the lake that seems to serve food after 3pm. It was my birthday, and we tried serveral places before getting to this one. The owner was wonderful, the food and attendants were corteous and pleasant and I ended up having a great Birthday lunch, even with a complimentary Limonccello offered by... More

Arrived at our hotel too late for lunch so decided to look around for an open resaturant to grab some lunch. L'onda was the closest and they were still serving lunch past 14:30 so we went in. I had the lasagne with a side of roasted vegetables and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hubby had tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms which he said... More

Great location looking over the lake. Food was very tasty and fresh. The service was attentive but not rushed. We shared an entree and struggled to finish main course. Would recommend for a casual dinner

Tasty dishes, service is good, Italian I would say, they do not hurry you know. There are no many places to have lunch esp a late lunch in Cernobbio, so L'Onda is quite nice!

Went there for lunch and had a real surprise - one of the nicest salads and pizzas ever. Went back there the next day to have the same again, only to be told they don't sell pizzas. I said I'd eaten one there the day before and the waiter just looked at me strange. Very weird! Had the cuttlefish pasta... More

I rarely leave reviews, but this horrible place deserves one! The restaurant looks nice and relaxing with a good view of the lake, but service and food are awful! They are very slow and don't care about the clients. The pasta and seafood were disgusting, overcooked and not fresh. We waited 43 minutes for the food and the waiters were... More
