A great experience

What a dining experience and food theatre. Lots of courses so don't peak to early. Not cheap (cash only) and if you include the boat ride over as well but really worth it.

Love this place... Visit every time we're here. Menu may stay the same but the hospitality is unrivalled and the history is awe inspiring.

My friend and I were so excited to go here on the 2nd to last night of our holiday in Lake Como. We thought the island would be magical....and it was....but that is all - as the for the restaurant - just awful! On arrival, we were bombarded with plates of food and no choice over wine (Soave - which... More

I was skeptical when told there was one never-changing menu for lunch and dinner and what was on that menu. It sounded uninspired -- but that could not be further from the truth. Every item on the menu was super fresh, cooked plainly but to absolute perfection, and delicious. Every one in my group of 8 loved it. The terrace... More

We had a fabulous meal here...course after course. The ingredients are very fresh. The preparation is simple and on point. The wine as well as the food, just keeps coming. The setting is incredible! As evening approaches, the backdrop is a scene of twinkling lights from the houses across the water. The waitstaff fusses over you. The owner is a... More

This is all about theatre and the simply stunning view of the lake that you get while you dine. We chose to dine in the evening when it was a little cooler. Fine dining it is not and at 70 Euro per person I would not rate it good value for money (but neither is tea at the Ritz!). HOWEVER... More

If you want a one of a kind experience that will delight your palate for three hours, in one of the most beautiful surroundings in the world, come here for lunch or dinner! Located on Lake Como ( commonly called Lake Lario). Host abenvenuto Puricelli is a pure delight and the numerous courses served are as well. The homemade gelato... More

This place makes you travel back in time, in a strange way…. Was it the wine which is free flowing with your menu order, was it the old chalet resembling house in which the restaurant is situated, or the owner-host who has been doing the fire ritual for the last 40 or so years, I do not know, but all...

I went with a large group. The food and experience were like nothing I've ever seen before. The champagne boat ride to the island restaurant was amazing and the restaurant's host was flawless. You really need to experience this when staying around Lake Como.

The food is simple and fresh, the service was great. A real experience and well worth it. A must if you're staying near by - we traveled by taxi from Tremezzo for €25 each way and then took the small shuttle boat across for €7 each. Makes for an expensive day, but thoroughly worth it.
