The best in the area

You will feel like home while having the best meal in the area. No other words are needed, just go there! Make sure you know where is the trattoria because it's hard to find on google maps.

We happened upon this little restaurant down at the lakeside in Carenno, a short walk from Pognana or on the main bus route between Como & Bellagio. We had tackled the Strada Regia up on the mountainside that morning and were ready for some refreshment. We were warmly greeted by Armande & his wife who explained that there was no... More

Eating here is like a scene in a movie. The spot is so italian, so wonderful! Very nice owners. For fish lovers who want to taste the traditional fish meals of Lake Como.

This place has no menu - you will get 3 fish courses, a cheese course, and a choice of fruit salad or Creme caramel for dessert, with a bottle of what appears to be home produced prosecco on the side. Warning over- its amazing. so local and high quality. They will do ham to start for kids as the trout... More

as stated before: Antonio and his team do a great job! They serve a fixed menu with specialties from the lake. However, for our kids they made a little exception and served some prociutto&tomatoes for appetizer. Careno is a small village with only this one restaurant. We were lucky enough to live here, so getting to the "Trattoria" was easy.... More

You do not wanna loose the taste of historic Like cusine. It is far from the main road, 10 min down from Where you left your CAR to a very steep salope. Best to get there by boat. The menu is FIxed, choice-less: a couple of delicious entrees (cavedano paté is Over the top) and the signature 'Risotto col persico'.... More

Many steps to go down (when you come from the road) but worth it. Food is authentic fare - but you don't have a choice except for desert. Service was very personal. Book early to get an outside table on a summers day - but inside is still very nice.

We spent a very nice evening at Trattoria del Porto. Antonio and his team do a great job! They serve a fixed menu with specialties from the lake and the village. You have to like fish though as all courses except for the dessert contain fish. Also ask the team for the keys for the old church next to the... More

A truly authentic local dining experience. That's the only way to describe Trattoria del Porto. First of all, you should be aware that this place is not easy to find. You'll need to park on the main road and then walk down towards the lake for about 5 minutes, but the food,service and view is well worth it. We parked... More
