I probably had the best spaghetti with clams and lots of it. The waiter was very attentive and nice.

This restaurant's history dates back over 100 years when it used to be an "international" bar. However, the food is simply superb. The dishes are your staple Italian variety, but with a twist and a complexity of taste that is surprising. We highly recommend the minestrone and the penne arrabbiatta!

I find it hard to understand the rating this establishment has on tripadvisor. We had lunch there one day whilst staying at Cadenabbia. We were the only customers, in fact we passed the Rodrigo on other occasions and there were no customers, all the neighbouring eateries were quite busy. This was probably explained by the mediocre food that we received... More

I you want a 'real' pizza done in a 'real' pizza oven in a really pleasant pizzeria then visit to Rodrigo's is a must. Not only is the food and drink first class, the family who own and run the pizzeria make your visit a really pleasant and rewarding experience. They are 'not in your face' but we think add... More

Rodrigo easily accommodated a group of 12, and with only one chef on duty, managed to get our food out quickly. The mussels were AMAZING, and the pizza is one of the best in the area. The bill is also very reasonable. I highly recommend Rodrigo for a casual, great meal and experience.

We were at Lake Como for a friends wedding. It was absolutely gorgeous. We all stayed in hotels around Cadenabbia so spent a lot of time in Rodrigos and the bar next door (Victorias I think) but are great but the pizzas hee are simply amazing. Great value too, and they do take away. Not much going on in Cadenabbia... More
