Food was terrible. It was cold and had absolutely no taste. The service wasn't great either. My advice would be to give it a miss!

Nice meal and reasonably priced, waiters spoke English, and would probably visit again. Located by lake, seating indoors and outdoors.

Our visit to Fontana d'Oro was a very pleasant surprise. We were escorted to a covered, outdoor, lakeside table and given the menus. English is spoken but my Italian was well-received and began an evening of relaxed, humorous, gustatory surprise. My wife and I were jonesing for some pasta. My wife chose a crab tagliatelle in a tomato cream, curry... More

I recently visited Lake Como and was very pleased to find this restaurant. The food is excellent, large portions at very reasonable prices, with a lakeside view for perfection. The service was exceptional as was the complimentary homemade limoncello at the end of the meal. I hope to visit again sometime soon.

We went to this restaurant based on TA and it did not dissapoint! The staff where friendly and and quick with their service. My wife had the Gnocchi and I had the Calzone - in the shape of a chicken none the less - the chef had a good chuckle when my plate was presented! The food was excellent.

Our family of four ate here based on TA recommendations and we were not disappointed. The service was very good, especially their interaction with the kids. The pastas and salad were very nice with generous serves, even our fussy eater was happy. We sat out the back, which was nice and cool on a hot sunny evening.

Nice view over the Lago and very efficient and friendly service. Food was good, not super great, but for the price it is very good.

Stopped at this restaurant on a whim, as we were passing, on our way back from the funicular. We had a table outside with a glorious view of the Lake. The food was good quality Italian dishes, served promptly and with a smile. Good prices. Waiters were helpful with the choices too. In fact, we enjoyed the lunch so much... More
