The best of Italy!

What can I say... Angela and her parents are beautiful people who make you feel like you're part of the family. We're traveling Europe from Australia and this has been one of our best memories.

We walked the Sentiero del Viandante from Mandello del Lario for about two hours, arriving at the Agriturismo in time for lunch. When we were later paying the bill for our family of six, Angela told us that she does not always open on Wednesdays but, because we rang from Australia to make the booking, she opened especially for us!...

This was an experience. I organised lunch on probably one of the hottest days in June for friends travelling from South Africa, Mauritius and France- all with very different palates! The first part was finding La Selvaggia- it felt like we were climbing Mount Everest, as the longest part of the trip is walking up a steep hill but all... More

I booked this restaurant for 4 people. We have 2 people who have difficulty walking. But was helped by been taken up in a jeep. this ride at night in the dark was worth the trip up. The food was fantastic. I was taken back by the hospitality well worth a visit. But not a easy walk down for any... More

This hard to find gem lived up to its billing when my partner and I visited. We parked were others recommended, walked straight down the road, until it turned gravel and followed it up and up. Other way, up the stairs, it harder to find, but a good way to go down. The menu is fixed, so just set back... More

As a part of our motorcycle tour around Europe, one of our stops was the Moto Guzzi museum in Mandello del Lario. We found a great new B&B as well and asked the proprietor if there was anywhere local to get some dinner. She said there was a local place that we may like, and she could check if they... More

I read all the other reviews so I had decided we had to find this restaurant. However, we'd gotten lost trying to find our hotel and my husband was not enthusiastic about yet another expedition or adventure. I insisted. First (despite having a GPS voice assist) we got lost finding the cemetary in Somana. So prospective guests need to find... More

But in case you are lost, the easier is to ask a neighbour, italian you may cross like us on the road which will... More

Where to start. First, La Selvaggia is extremely difficult to find. Having been I still don't believe I could give decent directions. There are no signs in the village from where you have to find the path! When you do find the right path it is a 15 minute, fairly steep climb up stone step pathway. In fact we hiked... More

Visited there in September 2013. We got 9 people and difficulties to get taxi there. Angela arranged us an great boy to pick us from near village and get us there. After 10 minutes walk we were there and the meal started with bread and wine. Everything was perfect. There were one German couple and we from Finland. One hour... More
