This restaurant was such a delightful part of our trip. It is in a beautiful setting. I thought the menu was great. It is a complete meal they bring out family style. There is a ceremonial toast at the end! I didn't know true mediterranean food until I ate here and it is delicious! It was fun to look at... More

I have been to this restaurant at least 4 times and I have sent many other travelers to this restaurant on an island in Lake Como. They serve a 7 course meal complete with wine for about 70Euros per person. Every course is to die for, everything is fresh and the service is outstanding. You can go on line and... More

Expensive for what it is: a fixed menu that starts with good antipasti included a good trout too, buy all the rest was disappointing. Don't believe it's a 5 course dinner, you get some roasted chicken (hardly a delicacy!!) a small chunk of cheese, a scoop of ice cream and mediocre wine. In the end a coffee "corretto" ie with...

Do not take a private water taxi to this island off Bellagio because it is very expensive. Simply check the ferry schedule in Bellagio and enjoy the beautiful ride at a reasonable price. We had this feast under a shade tree with good views of the lake. The meal is pre fixe and is ample-salad, breads, untold vegetables, salmon, fried... More

This was a private event: Every plate that was served to us (family style) was better than the next! True Italian antipasti served by true Italian "old" men with smiles on their faces and stories to tell! There was enough food for an army and yet somehow we ate it all!

This is an experience not haute cuisine. A beautiful location with local fare with a bit of light entertainment as the host gives his ode to the island and it's long history. You're welcomed with a bottle of wine (all part of the 75 euro per head price) and an appetiser of tomato with lemon then a cornucopia of antipasti,... More

We ate here our first night o Lake Como. It is a bit difficult to get to if you don't have a car (we took the bus to the little boat), but it was a great experience! There are many courses and the staff was attentive. The coffee/fire ceremony was really neat and Benvenuto was a great host.

Me and my husband had lunch at the Locanda. The restaurant has a nice view of the lake, and the personnel is very friendly. Unfortunately, they only offer 2 types of menus: the light version (€53) or a full version (€73). The light version includes half a tomato with lemon as a starter, grilled vegetables, prosciutto and ham, a piece... More

Where do you start trying to explain the owner Benvenuto, or Ben for short, and his fabulous restaurant? This simply was the best restaurant experience we had in the three weeks we spent in Italy. Other reviewers have done an excellent job of detailing the 7 course fixed lunch/dinner menu which hasn't changed since the restaurant's inception in 1947. Let... More

Twice I've been with family and friends to this wonderful restaurant in the past 25 years. Each time: very nice welcome from people with character and a sunny disposition. Many antipasti dishes, simple, Italian, delicious. Fish course: yummm – this time rainbow trout simply grilled with perfect seasoning and olive oil. Meat course: roasted chicken, again perfectly roasted and crispy,... More
