If you want an authentic Italian meal and lots of it, then take the time, catch a boat/ferry and visit the island and its restaurant. You won't be disappointed. kerri, Australia

If you ever be in lake Como area, this is the restaurant you should go. 5 course very local meal including white wine with a great lake view from the inly island in the lake Como, at 68Euros per person (cash only!) will never disappoint you. The highlight however is the brandy burning ceremony after meal performed by the owner... More

This is an experience of dining and tradition! Service was excellent, food was very good. The view it beautiful. The owner Benvenuto is a great host and after the 5 course meal which is a set price and very reasonable there is a surprise at the end of your dinner. This dining experience takes 3 hours.

Best advice, don't eat the bread because you won't be able to fit in the food! Sensational, the theatre especially along with the amazing location and view. This is a set menu, so sit down and enjoy the ride.

A very special dining experience. Allow 3 hours to enjoy it all! Five courses, set menu, set price, small serves but you can have "seconds" of any of them. Very entertaining. Relaxing, friendly service, all-in-all one of the best dining experiences we have had anywhere in the world. My son went there 5 years earlier and his comments were the... More

We made advance reservations for lunch at this restaurant which was hailed as "authentic" "special" jewel of Lake Como. It was none of those things. Getting there from the Piazza Caravour I recommend taking the "slow boat" 1 direction and cabbing the other. The slow boat is about 1 to 1.5 hours back to town. It is a lovely ride... More

A very entertaining simple lunch @ the Locanda. A little like reentering the 1970s, complete with kitsch styling and a well rehearsed host but if you enter into the spirit of the afternoon it is so much fun. Delicious salmon trout and a view that's hard to resist.

If you're with a large group, this could be a fun activity. If you're with couples, as I was, I recommend against it. The food was fine, although not memorable, and as a party of four, we were forgotten once a huge group arrived. It was like eating at Disneyworld. We finally left, without our desserts, because our waiters had... More

A very special restaurant located in a lovely island. Very nice to sit out, and services are very friendly. Only thing is we had to pay 21 Euro for two adults and two kids to travel from Sala Comacina to the island, which was only a 3 min ferry ride.

We enjoyed dinner at the restaurant. The staff were friendly and when we commented it was too windy and cold outdoors, a table for our group of 10 persons was set up immediately inside. Good service, food portions were generous and the quality pretty good. We were impressed by how deftly the staff portioned out the salmon, dished out chunks... More
