Classic family run Como Trattoria in a great spot. Be prepared for just one menu... No choice.. But absolutely worth the visit for the slightly more adventurous who wish to taste real Lake Como cuisine. (watch out... Cash only no credit cards)

We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. Our waiter was kind enough to set our table outside while we ate our antipasto, and it was by far the best table in the house. Views for days. 👀 Food was outstanding, local fresh...More

We had a real nice moment at the trattoria del porto, me and my wife. When we arrived, unfortunately the terrace was fully booked. So we were offered a table inside, in front of an open window with a stunning view on the lake Como!...More
