Elegant, refined restaurant within an antique setting (walls, bulding etc). The beef fillet was excellent though the medium cooking was more of a rare. Facing directly the Como Lake, it's definetely a great place for a good lunch

the atmosphere is very nice and chick, upper class. If you want to impress your business partners it is the right place. Service very accurate and multilanguage. Variety of dishes - mainly fish but also meat. Quality/price good average.

We selected this place based on a common indicator; it was crowded and did not seem touristy. Very good food and wines. Moderate pricing. Friendly atmosphere. Real local food experience.

We came across this restaurant by chance. A real success. The staff were welcoming and the service exemplary. We chose fish for both starter and main course. Beautifully presented and and of real quality. Reasonably priced and with a delightful ambience. To be highly recommended.
