This restaurant serves the same menu every night. Each dish was delicious - amazing, fresh veggies, followed by fish, salad, chicken, cheese and dessert. It takes a long time but it's an experience. And there isn't a more beautiful setting!

This is just a really cool place - restaurant owned for 40 years by the same guy on a little island accessible only by boat. The food is really really good, but it's also just the perfect Italian holiday experience. Massive meal of excellent food, but it's the friendly, quintessentially Italian service from the proprietor in a wonderfully casual and... More

What a wonderful evening! We arrived by boat to a fantastic table by the sea. The menu hasn't changes since the restaurant opened in the 40's and it shouldn't! The service and hospitality was excellent. They even brought my 8 year old son into the kitchen to see how they cooked the fish! The food was simple yet amazing and... More

We came for lunch here on 29th July to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. To say it was fantastic is not enough...but it was fantastic! The food was good, light and filling without making you feel bloated! I hate that bloated feeling after you've eaten and can't move. Not here. The food was good the tomato starter everyone loved -...

Undoubtedly one of the nicest views in the area. It's lovely. You can even swim to the small island from the shore (just put your wallet between your teeth as you will need it when you get there). The food isn't great, but it's not awful by any means. They do a fixed menu, which is a little inflexible and... More

My boyfriend and i has lunch here after being recommended this restaurant by a few friends. The staff and owner is really friendly and welcoming, and the food was delicious. The 5 hour baked onion was unbelievable and like nothing we have ever tasted before, the fish was boned at the table which added to the theatrical experience. The food,... More

Theatrical but worth the corny banter from the proprietor! Our 8 year old daughter loved every moment. Although we enjoyed the 5 course fresh and delicious menu - much of which is prepared at your table - they laid on simple tomato pasta, bread, chicken and ice cream for our daughter. Free flowing wine made the lunch even more memorable!... More

Meal was superb, plentiful and a wonderful mix of flavours, wine was also readily available, no sooner had we finished one bottle, another appeared. Host and staff were friendly and professional. Good value for money and one of those memorable experiences.

The meal at Locanda dell'Isola Comacina was superb. They have been doing exactly the same menu for over 40 years, and it was well orchestrated and delicious. They bring heaping portions of fresh vegetables, a fresh salmon trout, fried chicken, an amazing presentation of fresh cheese, and ice cream. The whole meal is topped off with a presentation by the... More
