Last week it was my wife's birthday and where better to surprise her for a romantic dinner together? Villa d'Este of course and The Grill. The weather was nice and warm so our table
was outside in the garden with a spectacular view of the sunset on Lake Como. It goes without saying that the food and service were impeccable. We ate fish mainly and it was delicious. They also surprised my wife with a fresh fruit birthday cake at the end of our meal. The best I have ever tasted!!! Food and service aside there is always a sensation of a magical atmosphere when at Villa d'Este. Our evening was also enlightened with the presence of George Clooney eating at the Grill with friends.
By the way, the reviews I read about people complaining about the prices at Villa d'Este make me laugh. It's like buying a Ferrari and complaining about the fuel consumption !!! Ciao
