“Amazing Experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

A must when you are in Como! Worth the trip up! My family of 9 had one of the most memorable dining experiences this past Monday evening. First of all, we asked for the balcony overlooking Lake Como . They graciously set up a big table for us which was perfect. Our waitress was awesome! She recommended family style dining and suggested a variety of dishes which were perfect for all including my vegetarian daughter. The food was outrageously delicious!!!! We are all 100% Italian and know what authentic Italian food is and this was it. The polenta was amazing! The pasta with swordfish, olives and capers was incredible!! The wild boar was to die for!!! This restaurant is a must!!

“Worth the climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Amazing place with an amazing view from the terace. I can just say that those "Malfatti di zucca" changed the way I will look at pasta from now on. Delicious home made dish, one that you can have only in a real Trattoria.

As I said, it really did worth the climb.

“Heavily Overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Nice views of Como if you have a table at the window, food is edible at best, we had scallopini, very friendly waitress. They charged vegetables and potatoes ( both not worth the price of 4-6 Euro ) extra, which may be written on the menu in small print, but the waitress did not mention this when we ordered.
Appears to be a tourist restaurant , no locals.
If you have taste buds avoid it or you may try simple pasta.

I respect your opinion, even if it seems that you do not respect very much the opinions of a lot of or customers.
Unfortunately I could not put photos in this space, otherwise I would have shown the two pages of our menu containing scaloppine and grilled vegetables and potatoes written in the same way. Moreover, we use only fresh vegetables (not frozen ones) and we prepare the grilled vegetables at the moment, so I assure you that the cost of 6 euros for them is not too much, and to be precise you paid for the potatoes 3 euros.
I'm sure that if you forget your preventions, you would appreciate more the Italian kitchen.

“Don't miss this gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

My husband and I fell in love with this restaurant when we walked in the door and saw the view. The food and wine was delicious and the prices reasonable. The staff and the owner were so friendly and helpful. Don't miss a trip to the bathroom....bring your camera!

“Location, location, location .....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Great restaurant, appreciated our waitress who took charge of our menu selections of local wine & food. The recommendation from Vitorio (a local gentleman) for authentic food with a panoramic view. Definitely a must if you travel the cable car.
