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

Just found this place by chance, after been on speedboat rented just in front of the Cafe'. We only had some drinks and cappuccino's but meeting the owner and talking to the guy really made this place special. Lot's of funny stories and really funny guy. A presto!!

We found this place 5 years ago when dashing to escape a sudden rain and that time had one of the best meals of our trip. We know the area really well since I lived in Cernobbio as a child and this was definitely a hidden little gem - at first one thinks it's just a gelateria and bar. Prime... More

I went there and we were about ten people. The only ones sitting indoors, nobody took any care of us. After a while they had the decency to bring the menus and we had to wait more time to order. When the waitress came for the orders, we asked her to take away what was still on our table (there... More

We stopped at L'Onda for some post-dinner drinks after touring the area and while we enjoyed the atmosphere overlooking the pier and a bit of the lake. However, when we sat down, the service was very evidently not great. It took almost 30 minutes to be given menus, and when we were, they were essentially thrown at us. We ordered... More
