Most expensive meal I’ve had since we moved to Italy but well worth it. Gorgeous setting and views and plush decor and fantastic food - especially the veal Milanese. A great way to visit this legendary place without staying here.

Imagine a candle-lit dinner on the waterfront that is Lake Como. We loved sitting a few tables back from the front. People watching over the candlelit ambience. The serenely gorgeous Lake Como. Live piano in the background a rather appropriate mix of Etta James and...More
