“Wonderful Dinner on our last night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We dined in the Garden on our last night in the area, and had a wonderful dinner, and excellent service as well. The view of the mountains behind varenna was delightful from this location as well as the sun set. It was nice to find this "hidden" charm, which we never would have found without Jennine's recommendation (from Bellagio Water Taxi's). The food was well presented, and most excellent. What a wonderful way to spend our last evening on Lake Como. It got even better when Jennine & Luca joined us for a glass of Wine at the end of the evening! P & J

“Nice view of Varenna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

A bit of a stroll from the hotels but the view is nice. My companions all ordered fish and liked it. Service was just ok - a bit uneven. Small local marina in front and a stone breakwater are scenic spots.

“Best view of Lake Como”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

There is a saying in the restaurant business, the better the view, the worst the food. This is NOT the case for La Punta. It does have an extraordinary view of Lake Como and that by itself is worth a visit. However, we found that their wine list is very very good and the food quality while rather slow service ( they were very very busy that day) it up the par with better Lake Como restaurants.
By all means try the Canua Sfortzato di Vaitellina - while on the pricy side.. it is an extraodinary wine of the region

“Lovely location, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The location is fantastic, but we were a little disappointed with the food. We are an Italian/English couple and unfortunately it seemed to be one of those cases where the location guarantees a steady influx of tourists so the owners don't see the need to invest in high quality ingredients or the best chefs. The riso con pesce persico, a usually delicious local dish, was particularly bland. In their favour, considering the location they probably could have inflated the prices more, it wasn't a lot more expensive than other restaurants in the area (apart from the winelist which had some exorbitant mark-ups). The service was good.
