Lovely Lunch

Had a lovely relaxed lunch on the last day of our holiday in Lake Como. Had just visied Villa Carlotta and were a bit tired. Staff here were quite happy for us to enjoy our lunch and then stay on a bit longer with a second glass of wine and our books. Good food and friendly staff - a great... read more

While waiting on a Servizio Rapido (speed boat) to Como we walked across the street to have something to drink. Wow. Cappuccino for me and a Coke Zero with lots of ice for my wife. Life is good.

A visit here will ensure that you leave feeling as if you could not eat anymore! The portion sizes are large and the staff are very friendly.

Good food at a reasonable price. We ate the veal which was particularly delicious. The local wine was also cheap and well worth trying. Good service and location at the lakeside. We managed to survive a particularly heavy storm with thunder and lightning during our meal sitting outside!

We did have a nice meal here, we sat outside, its overlooking the lake, but unfortunately the restaurant is on the road, so a little noisy. We ordered our food, waiter nice enough, but we had to wait at least 20 minutes before we got drinks and then they didnt bring out any bread, so we asked and he was... More

Lovely family run cafe/restaurant, food is nice and great value, excellent service from all the staff there. You can tell its a family business as they are there from morning to the last diner. Great place for good food at a reasonable price. One of the best on the lake i would say.

We ended up here 3 nights during our stay on Lake Como. The first night the food was very good, the second was the same and the third was outstanding. We had to laugh on the second night the waiter asked a couple to move tables to a smaller table while they were still eating. (I could see some people... More
