Excellent - Lovely Family

We had a lovely meal in Restaurant Rodrigo, having read good Trip Advisor reviews. Lovely food, and a good clean restaurant run by a young family who gave friendly service (including the little boy who served our bread, and was delighted with his tip).

We were staying at a ghastly hotel we were desperate to escape for the evening so came here for an absolute feast. The walnut pasta I seem to remember was exceptional, with wine in carafes and excellent service. Highly recommend.

We dined at the restaurant ever night whilst staying in Lake Como - it's a little gem of a place. The owner was very friendly and made us all feel welcome. The pasta dishes were so delicious and my husband said the pizzas were the best he had ever tasted. Well priced, comfortable surroundings and the best view across the... More

Were there for lunch. Took the pasta and pizza. Large dishes, good food, good service, price was ok and the view was great! One thing, though, you had to ask for oregano and parmesan from the waiter. I would have preferred it was on the table to begin with.

This restaurant is a little out of the way even by car but is well worth the visit. The steaks and meat generally here are fabulous and so thick and juicy. Service is good and friendly and if you are in the area it is definitely worth the effort to visit them.

Came here for light meal after a day out on our tour. Food served was of an excellent standard and their hot chocolate very impressive. Recommend - not 'fine dining per second but very good at what they do.

This restaurant is right opposite the lake so good views, partly under cover - good when raining! - and also has a beautiful old inside dining room if required. Quite good choice on the menu, had some lovely lake fish.

We had a meal here after spending the day exploring the lake. We walked past a couple of times as we were staying in the area and from walking past I would never have set foot in the restaurant. From the outside it looked run down and totally uninspiring, however thanks to Trip advisor and the good reviews we decided... More
