Great location, in a old medieval building between. Paolo is a "One man band": he catchs the fishes in the lake, he makes "carpione" and jams, he grows major part of the vegetables you'll eat. And obviously, he is the chef (and often the waiter!). So take your time and enjoy every dishes definetly fresh and homemade with a real "slow food philosophy" approach. Flaveurs of the lake of como, with an original touch. Good home's wine, good wine list. Good price/quality rate: three courses for 27€ plus wine. Ps: This is my point of wiev, but I'm not a tripadvisor professional, only someone who likes eating outside.

Great lake food dinner. Excelent. Bravi. We will be back tomorrow night to check the meat. This place should be in the top of the list.

If food is your passion then this is your Mecca. This is a one man show, the cook is your host and your waiter. But don't let that put you off as with only six tables to serve there is no risk of long waits. Rather, make sure you book so as not to lose a place. Consequently, your waiter's knowledge of what he is serving you is absolute, and what knowledge! If you so wish, your meal will be a lesson in the culinary traditions of the area as he is quite happy to talk about what he is serving and it's history. The ingredients are all sourced locally, he even catches the fish he serves.
I don't have enough words to say about this restaurant. The passion that he exudes is second only to the quality of the food.
On a more practical note, the prices are set according to whether you choose one, two or three courses and are considerably cheaper than other more ostentatious restaurants in the area (which can be on a par for quality but not with the same enthusiasm). The wine list is small but with excellent choices.
If you're in the area, don't miss it.

I totally regret not going back for a second visit during our three night stay in Lake Como. Far better than many of the unreasonably expensive 'starred' restaurants of the area. Tucked away in a narrow cobbled street of Mezzegra this real gem serves excellent food using locally sourced ingredients. The chef is very helpful, he took time and explained the whole menu to us in english and also recommended a very nice wine to us. He came to our table 2-3 times just to make sure that everything was ok! The wine list is moderately priced and has a few but good selections. Anything that you order is delicious but i will never forget the sweet aftertaste of the bottarga (fish roe from the lake) spaghettini and the rosemary and roasted garlic potatoes served with the main dishes (mine with goat - exclellent). The place itself is also very tasteful and super clean. Keep it up guys!
