On this trip to Italy, we have had the opportunity to eat at a number of quality and special places ... Navedano is certainly one of those and right up the top with the best. It is a beautifully presented and elegant fine-dining restaurant with huge floral displays ... particularly orchids. Our tour organiser (Sense of Italy) had recommended this... More

Great food and attentive service. A beautiful venue with amazing flowers. Family run for 150 years with 5 generations. We had scallops and bacon to start - amazing. I had home made lobster pasta special and my husband had lamb - both perfect. Dessert was pear and chocolate and the biggest plate of cheese ever. We asked them to recommend... More

The restaurant itself was beautiful inside and out - and the orchids and other flower arrangements were HUGE and absolutely stunning!! Only to be rivaled by the food and the presentation! We were warmly greeted by the owner when we arrived and were surprised to be the only ones in the restaurant. We were even more surprised to be the... More

A secret no longer, but most probably you still won't find it without navigation - just outside Como, in the middle of nowhere! But what a beautiful nowhere THAT is! Tugged away in a sutropical jungle, the NAVEDANO is a family affair in its 5th generation. Taking its name from an officer in Garibaldi's army called Navedan, who picked this... More

Though we enjoyed our experience at this restaurant, what is outstanding is the helpfulness and attention from the very personable owners as well as their staff. The restaurant itself is beautiful and a delightful place to spend the evening. The food is good but not great.

No trip to Como would be complete without dinner at Navedano. Our las visit was in October 2014 and we're looking forward to our next visit next week in October 2015. The food, the flowers and the staff attention to elegant detail make this a 5 star experience.

We travel the world and live in NYC. I can attest that this is one restaurant you must visit. Great food, first class service and the owners make you feel like guests in their own home. So attentive and they work their magic to make you feel so comfortable and welcome. A dish as simple as minestrone soup is taken... More
