An atmospheric wine bar tucked away just up some steep steps off the main road. Don't wear high heels if you intend to stay on to indulge in the vast array of wines on offer after the tasting! Wine tasting here was a delight! Informative session but not too technical. Good wines and nibbles on offer. I think we all... More

We spent the afternoon here last week during our trip to Lake Como after reading the other reviews. The staff had excellent knowledge of the wines and really looked after us. If you're going in the evening make sure you book as it gets busy, and you have to try the cheeses, the taleggio is amazing!!!

Had a lovely wine tasting session in here. Very informative on Italian wines. The owner was very good at explaining how wines are produced and everyone enjoyed it.

Wow - what a great night. We hired the venue out for some pre wedding drinks and we weren't disappointed. We had about 50 guests turn up during the night where they drank some great wine and ate from a well designed spread of food. Our host Joost and his staff were fantastic. Anyone looking for a small, quaint wine... More

After we had our amazing pre wedding party at Cantina Follie (where everything was superb.... Food was incredible, staff brilliant and so welcoming and surroundings fabulous) we returned with some our guests a few days later for drinks. Again Joost was so accommodating and we once again received top class service! I would highly recommend visiting this wonderful place :)

We decided to have our pre wedding party here and were not disappointed! Joost, the wonderful host, let us have sole use of the outside terrace which is a beautiful surrounding. We ordered the buffet for everyone and the food was wonderful. The staff were very attentive and friendly, and they provided a 'drinks card' system for the guests to... More

Truly worth the climb up the alley stairs. A wine merchant /restaurant offering a fantastic spread of wines of Italy and beyond. Excellent service and detailed explanations of what you're eating and drinking. All fresh dining under the grape vine on a small terrace. Exceptional experience should get 6 stars..

Great place to have dinner, or a drink, or a snack. We enjoyed the mini wine tasting menu - something different for an evening out, and the cheese and meat platter was great too. We had a little trouble finding it, but basically it's up the steps to the right of the Red & White wine bar, which is on... More

I went to Cantina Follie with my girlfriend while staying at Lake Como and we were very pleased. It's located up by the stairs behind the buildings on the main road. It's very cozy inside with a beautiful terrace. On the terrace you sit on long tables also with a small table for children. The personnel are very kind. The... More

We would like to thank all our guests that visit and reviewed us in our first 8 years of activity, Deborah & Joost.Our Winebar-Enoteca is specialized in platters prepared at the moment with local sliced cuts and cheeses.we don't not serve pasta, or maincourses because our philosophy is doing just a few things...but done in the proper way. Genuine ospitality and our motto "come like a guest go like a friend"
