Best meal in Como

We've been traveling all around the lake for a couple of weeks, and this meal managed to stand out in a sea of spectacular meals. We had a simple buckwheat pasta with tomatoes, and a rolled fish ravioli .... both were outstanding! Also an insalata mista (made it off-menu and it was one of the... read more

Superb cooking with an unmatched view across the lake. Very friendly staff. What are you waiting for? Also one of the most romantic locations I can think of. Ask for a table on the balcony and you can hear the water lapping just below you and - if you are lucky - a boat will arrive bringing guests.

Great views of the lake from a table on the terrace but slow service and very ordinary food- the pasta was fine but the sea bass was ordinary- good value Italian wines

Service is top, very limited menu, but out of this world. We were lucky to be on the balcony, and having the lake all to ourselves. The owner was very pleasant and proud of his wake board champion son.

This is a great restaurant in a great setting, food looked exceptional on paper, yet did not really wow on flavour. The house desert was wonderful and the service was excellent.

This was by far one of the best meals we had in Italy this year. The chef's menu consisted of 5 courses both pleasing to the eye as well as the palate. Do not miss this restaurant while on Lake Como.

We booked here on the basis of two local recommendations and had some delicious and different food, delicately flavoured with herbs and spices, bring a fresh, Asian twist to the Italian menu. The main courses come with the perfect balance of vegetables and although we couldn't manage desserts, they looked delicious. The food and service were very good and we'd... More
