Description: “Dinner’s ready!” I can still hear this booming voice clearly in my head, the only way to summon us all together once round the table, over loved or loathed dishes, began the tales of the day’s adventures while our brains unconsciously absorbed the wonderful tastes and smells that only traditional Italian cuisine has to offer. Today, we’d like to share these tastes.

Fantastic pizza. Beautiful views, nice atmosphere, great hospitality. Next to pizza, great homemade pasta's and fantastic risotto with fish of the lake. The lemon cake you will eat with the plate! Very child friendly.

“Homey with good food and great pizza.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is the restaurant for the Hotel Orso Bruno. The food is all homemade....including the pastas, pizzas and deserts. Good quality and good value in a relaxing and friendly environment...made it hard to try anywhere else.

“Excellent food, great service all while overlooking the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The menu was varied with many options to fit any taste. The food quality was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. We ate there multiple times during our visit and am still dreaming about the pizzas, lasagna and lemon sorbet for dessert. Delicious!

“Family owned and run, restaurant and rooms, charming on Lake Como”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We loved this place!!! We were staying at Pognano across Lake Como, where there is one restaurant, and a Bar/Tabacchi (that is closed on Thursdays), and always looking for new places to explore...just across the lake is Carate Urio, a short walk from the "Clooney Villa", truly a quieter part of Como. A young couple borrowed and saved to buy this place and are living their dream here, working hard to make it work. They have a young son who they love to show off, also. We found all the food to be fresh and the service was as if we were family. Room rates here are a fraction of fancier places along Como...SUPPORT THE LOCALS and the YOUNG HARD WORKING PEOPLE of ITALY, and give Il Filio d'Olio your business and euros!!! What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, as we did, or an entire evening!!!!

“Fine location superb views of lake Como”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

After a long drive from Rimini arrived mid afternoon pleased to find the bar downstairs open!

Ordered some paninnis and sandwiches all freshly prepared nice terrace to sit in,sipping an ice cold beer or the house white wine which is delightful and fresh.

Service was ver good.

Would highly recommend the restaurant upstairs as in my opinion it's probably the best pizzas in the area.


Keep driving along the lake rd and you will find numerous private as well as public beaches and little hamlets!
