“Great view, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We really enjoyed our lunch at this Osteria. We showed up on a Sunday afternoon without a reservation, but managed to get a great table at the front of the terrace with its beautiful view over lake Como.
I don't eat meat but found a few options on the menu, one of which was a typical local dish and was very enjoyable. For dessert we shared a slice of their chocolate cake which was delicious.
The staff didn't speak much English, but we got by. They were friendly and made a fuss of our 10 month old son, even asking if we wanted a highchair, which came along with a nice cushion in it to make it extra comfy!
I would definitely recommend a visit to this restaurant, and we will certainly go back when we're next in the region.

“Awful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Not sure if we were unlucky here but this completely spoiled an evening of our holiday. The waiter was surly and abrupt and the service was shocking.
I think it was probably because we mentioned being vegetarian and this was clearly a carnivorous establishment. There were a couple of meat free dishes on the menu (as the waiter sulkily pointed out to us!). We were going out of our way to be polite and try to have a nice evening but we were more or less ignored and left to wait while he chatted to the large table next to us who were spending more money on huge meat dishes than us.
He offered us ice cream for dessert eventually and we thought it strange that there was no desert menu or other options offered. A few minutes later he reeled off an exhaustive list to the table next to us!!!
You'll love it if you are a meat eater though. What food we did eat was delicious. The view here is spectacular as well which almost made up for the rude behaviour.
Vegetarians beware, this place is still in the dark ages unfortunately!

“Eclectic find high in the hills.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This gem in the mountain is worth the climb, even for vegetarians. Our energetic chef created a family style vegetarian feast for our party. He was passionate about his food and was a suburb, creating a fresh gnocchi with herbs and cheese locally sourced. I'm sure it was spectacular on their terrace in the day, but surly enjoyed my evening of food wine and friends. Cheers, Cin Cin

“Perfect and authentic Italien lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

We were 4 people who had lunch on this beautiful located restaurant near Lake Como and it was perfect. We all had the chefs menu for 30 Euro including water, wine and coffee. The menu included antipasti - many different things, pasta - two different kinds, a meat course and a small dessert. There was too much food but everything was great and homemade. Go to this restaurant as soon as possible.
