Excellent, family run restaurant with superb views of the Lake.

Superb restaurant with a very simple menu and good quality wine. The Florentina steak is the signature dish but also try the lake fish.

We reserved a table for 5 at 7pm and arrived at 6.50pm - we were told to wait while the owners ate their dinner in the kitchen. The restaurant was stuffy and the view was obscured by electricity poles. The rude staff we put down to local character but the evening got worse. No wine by the glass and warm... More

Authentic local food with excellent flavour in a rustic Italian location. Away from main area of Tremezzo but that adds to the atmosphere of the place.

La Figurida reminded me of dinner at my grandmother's in southern Italy, not necessarily because of the food, but because of the ambience and attentiveness. There were six of us in our party and we were seated on the rear balcony of the restaurant with a tremendous view overlooking the hillside of Tremezzo below us and out across Lake Como... More

La Fagurida has the most fantastic view of Lake Como from the hills. Watch the sun set on the mountains whilst sipping on delicious house wine and eating authentic Italian food. They don't serve pasta & pizza as it's not traditional - order the antipasti and the lake fish! Cheaper than lakeside eating too!

Bad service, average food and no view. Staff are rude; chef adds too much salt to everything; signature polenta dish had no taste at all. Not sure what all the hype is about!

An extremely difficult place to find in an ancient village. A fantastic view of Lake Como. Known for it's meat. Attentive service, rustic ambiance. The driveway is extremely narrow so don't bring your Cadillac Escalade as it is too big! A well known local place to take important people to give them a taste of the real rustic Italy!

The menu is all in Italian, but you can't go wrong with anything you order. If possible, try to order the rich polenta and the roasted rabbit. They're scrumptious!

We came here on a Friday evening having booked in advance. We ate on the terrace which had a lovely view over the lake - it was September so the terrace was enclosed with picture windows.The menu reflected what was available locally and was cooked fresh. The standout dishes included roast rabbit, a mixed plate for starters (very large portions!)... More

The location of the place is not ideal. In a way a normal restaurant expected for walk-in or drive-by clientele will have a hard time with such a location. Somehow La Fagurida survives and doing very well. We were recommended by the hotel for a local style restaurant that specialize in meat. The restaurant is located halfway up the hill... More
