“Just 15 minutes from Lake Como”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We were with a local friend in Lake Como when he suggested we venture to Switzerland for lunch. Always up for an adventure - off we went. What a treat! They knew our friend so we were treated to great service, wonderful food and a fantastic wine cellar that included a post lunch tour.

As I watched the food coming and going, I realized - everyone is treated to great service and great food.

The atmosphere is open, happy, great for business or pleasure. Must be romantic at night as the windows are three of the four walls. Multi languages spoken and everyone is pleased that you are eating with them.

Usually, I enjoy a restaurant several times before reviewing....but this is also one of those places that you will talk about for a long time after the meal - because it is a wonderful experience.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Now, THAT is a restaurant!
a) The "Conca Bella Restaurant" part is a complete surprising experience, both for your taste and for your eyes.
b) Opt for the (new) "Bistrot Conca" area if you prefer a more informal money-saving meal (in that case just go for "Sedanini Panna & Salsiccia", they are so delicious!)

“You're the best !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Have eaten last night - it was just perfect! Congrats to owner & host Ruth Montereale, Chef Andrea Bertarini and the serving crew! The 'beignet colla schiuma di parmigiano' and the 'semifredo di gorgonzola' are two great new dishes never eaten before!
