Went with teenage family and worst meal we had on holiday. Restaurant is right next to road and at road level so noisy. Service was poor and seemed uninterested. Food was OK but ingredients were from tins / jars on our pizzas. Belle Isole restaurant down the road is far better with fresh ingredients.

We tried fish from the local lake; it was good but really nothing special. French fries and salad were worse than from McDonalds. Place feels overpriced.

We took dinner in this restaurant. The service was poor. The waitress was shouting. No customer orientation. Poor English!!! The waiters were shouting at each other in front of the customers. Very slow... It took us one hour to have our dinner. We do not recommend this restaurant at all

Had a plate of pasta , found it bland and a small portion to what you normally get in Italy , like others resturants around here not very good value . The service was ok , but the traffic being so close did not make this a pleasant meal unfortunately . I would not recommend

Dear sir /lady with regard to the small portion I must say that you are the first to say the portion is small ... our dishes are always very abundant the thing that don't always do other places. I think if you ate a homemade dessert you would be sweetened :) Thank you... More

This bar/ restaurant offers simple menu with basic Italian food. We tried ravioli with ricotta/ spinach and sea food pizza. Pizza was better. Maybe because we had a perfect Ravioli day before in Bellagio.

We are very happy we ate here tonight! A family restaurant, "la mamma" in the kitchen. Nice to sit outside with the view over the Como Lake. I had the risotto, my husband the pasta vongole and our 5-year old ate penne al ragu. We all were very content. The crème brulee as desert was different from what we know,... More

We dined here having seen the positive reviews and were glad we did. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was really lovely. We shared calamari and bresaola to start and both were delicious. We followed up with the clam spaghetti (as mentioned in a previous review-amazing!) and risotto with perch fillets. I am a huge risotto fan... More

We tried Ristorante Rodrigo on our 1 year anniversary of being engaged right here on Lake Como- we could not have made a more delicious choice!! The pasta with black truffle was to die for and we both had steak, Tagliatta con Rucola (sliced steak with Arugula salad) and Manzo con fungi porcini (Thick cut steak in a brown mushroom... More
