We had diner at this restaurant based on the numerous good recenses. The restaurant indeed serves great dishes, but you have to choose the right one. I am aware of the different courses in an italian meal, but a roast beef secondi platti consisting only of some vegetables (without dressing) and two thin slices (like on a sandwich) of (cold)...

Stayed here one night on a business trip but the hotel is not geared up for a business related visit. Cramped room, desk barely big enough for my big laptop, nowhere to put my suit case. I had a double bed and I did wonder how on earth two people would have coped. I don't think the hotel offers WiFi... More

I loved the deserts, but also the minestrone was great, as well as the pasta with mushrooms! The breakfast here is also very nice, not a huge amount of choice, but just right. What they have is served with quality and appealing also to the eye.

We were the only patrons when we went and felt like we members of the family! The food was delicious and the restaurant was beautiful. We sat outside but it was equally as charming inside. We toured the spotless kitchen and the small hotel attached to the restaurant. The wines and pasta were great.

When staying in Lake Como, we ate dinner at La Griglia because the food is supposed to be delicious and is said to be where the locals dine. After dining here, I can say that both of those statements are very true! Even though we had to drive up the mountain on a very narrow, we would definitely do it... More

We went to la griglia for Sunday lunch, it is a short drive from the charming village of Argegno. As you ascend to the village of Sant'Anna the air freshens and there is a tranquil atmosphere. The restraint is surrounded by pretty gardens and lovely views to the mountain and the lake below. The food is stunning a short menu... More

We were recommended La Griglia by a local as a porcini specialist during the height the season. The food was very good, the owner extremely hospitable and the prices fair. €60 for three with two courses plus a €30 wine. It had one of the best wine lists we had seen and the owner selected an excellent local wine when... More

We had been recommended this restaurant for its good value food. It is situated about 3km up the hill from central Argengo. Try the pocinni polenta and veal casserole - fab!
