During the week long stay in Como we had dinner twice in La Colombetta. We loved it, the food, the wine, the ambience, the service were all very good. The friendliness and attention given was above par and most welcome. On both occasions we had a three course meal, for our mains we had both fish and beef and in... More

I would recommend this place. The family who runs it is wonderful. The setting is an old church. Don't miss in Como. The best lunch we have had in Italy.

The service, food, and comfort were fantastic! 1 brother and 3 sisters from Sardinia. Gave a glass of Proseco to start and finished us off with a glass of limoncello and delicious meringues. We shared the mushrooms, the homemade black pappardelle with red prawns, and then the sliced fillet with vegetables. The meal was delicious! The setting is modern in... More

Special night at this restaurant. Meal was exceptional and they kept on bringing over complementary items such as Prosecco, limoncello and meringue cookies. For a NYer there was true value in this meal! We ate beef filet, ravioli and tagliatelle with truffles. It has earned its #1 rating in my book.

We thoroughly endorse all previous reviewers who gave 5 star rating without any negative comment. For the record for main my wife and I shared the sea bass baked in salt. Expensive but worth it.

This restaurant is a rare gem. The dining room is very typical and elegant. Service is impeccable. As for the food, it was outstanding, and given the price, it is more so. No Michelin star but in my view, they more than deserve it. Perhaps the dishes are not the most creative, this is traditional Italian cuisine. The truffle pasta... More

Greeted at the door then served a complimentary Prosecco we went with 3 courses. Between the 4 of us we just had to share. Staff were fantastic and we were not disappointed. A... More

Just an incredible meal. The space, once a church is modern and warm inside. We sat outside on the patio and were treated like family by the lovely staff. Black tagliatelle with red shrimp was incredible. I have given up ordering Branzino because it is seldom cooked correctly, usually dry and tough. This fish was perfectly cooked in a salt... More

I think it deserves its name as the best fish restaurant by Lake Como. We had the most fantastic dinner! Very nice service and plenty of english. We had octopus and asparagus starters, both were extraordinary! Afterwards we shared a lobster main course. Wine list is quite good but very pricey. It has been one of the best meals and... More
