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!

Why pay for cooking classes in Bellagio, when just across the lake at Locanda Sant'Anna Restaurant is waiting for you to have the best cooking experience ever. A party of 4 made a reservation. We had one of the dining rooms to ourselves and the owner's (brother and sister) Lino and Bruna accomodated us. First we got a tour and... More

Just a few minutes drive up the hill from the busy road around Lake Como is the village with two hotel / restaurants side by side. We went here and had a late lunch following a morning in Como. It was a lovely quiet location with extensive gardens. Food was very good with some interesting choices on the menu. On... More

Food was excellent local cuisine (fresh pastas, homemade boar sausage, etc). The waiter made an excellent recommendation without trying to up sell from the (surprisingly extensive) wine list. The terrace was cleverly engineered to provide an outdoor experience, even if it rains. Well worth the drive up the mountain to escape the crowded lakeside scene.
