We arrived by boat and were welcomed by the very friendly and unpretentious staff who showed us to our table at the edge of the patio area overlooking the lake. The food was rustic as it was intended to be but having served the same menu since 1947 everything is done to perfection. As the sun went down our first... More

There is not one aspect of Locanda dell'Isola Comacina that can be labeled the best...it is the combination of the whole experience. From the time you board the boat,till the time you walk the path saying goodbye, this is something you will not forget. The architecture of the building, the courtesy of the staff, sharing of traditions, the big personality... More

We were on a boat trip around the Mennagio area and got extra tickets to go Bellagio to the island and wow was it worth it! It was 68 euros each and I was a bit scared that we were going to get ripped off and we were taking friends so I really hoped it wasn't rubbish. We were running... More

The food is simple, tasty, served in a fun manner and there is lots of it. It was a fun evening out. We were made to feel very welcome by our host Benvenuto sporting his tartan waistcoat and wooly hat! It was quite expensive but worth every penny for the experience. he boat trip to the island deed to the... More

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

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
