We found this restaurant purely by accident when we moored our boat here. The view is stunning and the staff are so friendly. The food was simple rustic done perfectly. Fresh salads were a welcome change from pizza and pasta. Only down side is that it is quite pricey for what you get and also they... read more

An entertaining night. The menu is set a five course meal which is unchanged since 1947. The cost is 70 euros with an 8 euro boat fare. The food varies from standard to good I would mention the onions and the trout. I enjoyed every plate but my companions were less enthralled by the desert and some of the starter.... More

When I was first told that our management group would take a boat to our restaurant, I was excited! We were told on the way though, that historically, everyone that ate in this place, died horribly after!! Well, someone seemed to have lifted the curse and all is well. :) There is no menu, so do not be surprised when... More

If you are going to visit Lake Como you should try to put this on your itinerary. You must take a ferry which run quite frequently to this island. Once there you are greeted by an friendly wait staff who allow you to choose your seats. From this moment on you will be treated to some of the best food... More

The Locanda della Isola is located on Isola Comacina in the middle of Lake Como. You must take a boat ferry to get there. Once there, you are transported into a world of traditional Italian hospitality that is a true pleasure to experience. The host, Benvenuto, welcomes you as you enter, and becomes the star of the evening at the... More

Take the small boat to the island, walk the island (follow the path to the left of the boat dock). Enjoy the show that is your meal. They do one meal, and they do it great!

We were told you should go once to this restaurant however the reason only materilised after that visit. Lovely staff but the food was very basic and very expensive. We are happy to spend money on a lovely meal but this was not the case. Go to Tiralanda if you want beautiful food and good wine.

We arrived by boat from Cernobbio (50 min.) and walked up the stairs to the outdoor dining room with AMAZING views of Lake Como. Bring cash (€70), no credit cards accepted, and sit back and enjoy the parade of delicious, freshly prepared food. Tomato lemon caprese, 7 types of vegetables including fabulous roasted onions, whole baked char, chicken, and vanilla... More
