The steak is unbeatable

Being a foodie I was blown away by the steak. One of the best I've had!! The only negative was the amount of flies but I would be happy to tolerate these !

Had salmon pasta which was OK but not great, but second time I went I had stuffed aubergines which was much better. The best thing here are the puddings - had spectacular, huge, ice cream and fruit creation with fan on top - best pudding I've had in my whole life! Service good too. On busy, noisy road, but all...

Good location. Decent pricing, not much options. Worth the money. Good views. Child friendly place. Cars passing by very close, but its the habbit of the city.

This bar restraunt has good pasta and local dishes. I would recommend the Prawns, Veal, puddings and ice creams. A great MatreDi and always happy to help with suggestions for dishes and wine. This is one of the better places to eat along the shores of Lake Como.

We loved the atmosphere, quick service and little personalised half-litre wine bottles. Unfortunately the pizza didn't taste very 'italian'. It had a thick crust and *loads* of cheese, and felt much more like take-out pizza at home than that of an Italian pizzeria. I imagine some tourists might like that, but it was a bit greasy for my taste.

Visited twice and on each occasion found the food and service reasonable and friendly enough. But I've marked them down to 3 stars for a number of reasons - their menu is not as varied as an adjacent restaurant, their prices are higher, and on our second visit their service was a bit too quick, when the main course arrived...

We ate at Helvetia a few times during our stay in Tremezzo, and also got take out pizza one night. I would say it's slightly better food than the Red and White, with slightly more refined service. A great spot for a leisurely lunch or just an Aperol Spritz.

We ate here twice during a visit to Tremezzo. Food was excellent, plenty of choice, great service and good value. Really nice to sit outside overlooking the lake on a warm evening, even if the road is close by and can be a bit busy. If that bothers you the inside tables are better.

Myself, husband and friends visited this restaurant recently and was thrilled with not only the food, but the level of customer service which was second to none, such that we went again the following evening. The staff were extremely pleasant and friendly and made the evening truly memorable. Thanks to Lorenzo, Roberto and all the staff and we will definitely... More
