“well worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Difficult to get to without a car (or taxi) but worth the journey. No pizza or pasta but just lovely imaginative food and marvelous views over the lake. Our mixed starter which was 12 euros and which we shared could have fed 4 people! Highly recommended!

“Enjoyed the food and the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

You will probably need to take a car here since it is way up on a hill. Specialties include polenta, rabbit, steak. Don't expect pasta or pizza; they don't have it. The food is pretty heavy so you may want to share portions. We enjoyed the house wine. Ask for a table on the patio so you can enjoy the view of Lake Como.
Reservations are suggested.

“special restaurant in the hills overlooking the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Best place in tremezzo with lovely views and food. House speciality is mixed antipasta and beefsteak Fiorentina.
Not cheap (60 euro for 2 with wine) but well worth it.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Best Polenta on the lake and really good food, especially meat. If weather is good try reserve a table outdoor.

“Mains outshine rather bizarre starters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

A mile or so from lake comos shores, suggest a taxi or strong calves for the trek! No choice with starters, just assorted cold hors d'oeuvres and a guessing game as to what they were. Restaurant is proud of not serving pizza or pasta. We had braised beef and roasted rabbit of which both were excellent.
