What a beautiful, special place…. The food, the wine, the atmosphere - but above all, the gracious owners who took care of you as if you are family. The food is all local and fresh. The owner is also a wine expert with fantastic recommendations...- locally, nationally and beyond. Most of my trip was solo, and especially with my limited Italian language abilities, they kindly assisted me with a number of travel-related questions and guidance. This is the rare place you hope to find in your travels…. I’m so glad I did. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a warm, beautiful place to spend time in Italy.More

Went here a couple of times, based on reviews read on trip adviser and were not disappointed. The restauarnt is tucked away in the cobbled streets behind the centre of Argegno - nice and cool and shady. We had the best lasagne and delcious local...meat and cheese platters - the cheese and potato dish was excellent too. The chocolate/nut dessert was amazing and the beer and wine were great too. The owner who was serving, spoke good English and was very helpful and knowledgeable about his products. It isn't cheap, and the portions are quite small, but what you get is delicious and very high quality. Highly recommend.More

Five of us as a 3-generational family found this hidden gem of a restaurant on our first night in Argegno. The owners are friendly, helpful, and willing to explain all the menu options. Homemade pasta for the delicious lasagna that one of the children had...will remain a great memory for her since she ordered it again on our 2nd visit. We started with a plate of hors d'oevres that included three kinds of cured ham, one of which was blueberry-encrusted. All of our dishes were beautifully presented and appetizing. The quiet atmosphere of a back street helped to make both dinners even more enjoyable. We all voted this restaurant our very favorite in Argegno.More

My wife and I have been back here multiple times during our short stay in Argegno. A gem of a place, as others have said, with such kind and sociable hosts that are also clearly so knowledgeable about their products. We’ve tried many new foods...and drinks and honestly can say we’ll make sure we return one day to Argegno specifically for the bistro. Go, and enjoy! :-)More

We had a lovely glass of wine served by the lovely owners of the place. Very friendly They advised us to visit the La P'osteria for food which did not live up to their recommendation

This is a real gem in Argegno. Premium wines, a simple menu with excellent genuine Italian food and a great, warm atmosphere. Absolutely recommended for a light dinner or drinks.

Very low key back street restaurant, away from the lake front but very much worth a visit! Lovely staff, and superb food. We had the mixed meat plate for a starter, and then the lasagne and the ravioli. This is not like lasagne you get...in the UK, this is proper Italian lasagne, many layers of beautiful light pasta with minimal cheese and bolognese sauce. The whole thing was fantastic, I cannot recommend this place highly enoughMore

This is truly a “hole in the wall,” but oh what a delight-inexpensive, friendly, and tasty. We piled in as a hungry family, and the owner was exceptionally kind and generous. After serving up our orders of cappucino, coffee, and hot chocolate, and after we...ate up all his croissants, he threw in a plate of tasty biscotti and a small loaf of bread. Avoid the pricey cafes on the street in front and explore! It is so worth it - the food is better and the prices are much more reasonable.More

Visited for a few drinks early evening. They have a good selection of both cocktails and wines, all reasonably priced. The Bar is located down a quiet back street a minutes walk from the lakefront. Atmosphere is relaxed and service was great. Owner was very...friendly and served us a variety of snacks with our drinks. Would highly recommend!More

The bistro has a lovely atmosphere with a lot of interesting information about Lake Como. I love the deli and the variety of Italian products available. The bistro is ideal for a drink and light meals.

Stumbled upon this great little place. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff with a very large stock of wines which are reasonably priced. An intimate atmosphere and I would highly recommend going there. Often they will also supply free nibbles.
