“Unbeatable View and Ambience”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

While on an excursion to Lake Como from a business trip in Milan, I stumbled across this fantastic restaurant.

First, the restaurant itself is located right on the water's edge. The dining room is gorgeous, and has an indoor-outdoor feel. The music selection set a nice mood and the wait staff were very friendly and attentive.

The food was very good as well. I recommend the ravioli as a first dish, and the cheese cake for desert.

Anyone traveling around the town of Carate Urio should make a point of experiencing a dinner here.

“Superb location and very helpful staff”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Just had a wonderful meal at Acquadolce. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive and nothing was too much trouble (even when it came to assistance with mooring boat). One of the best location on the lake - would not hesitate in returning.

“It was all about the ambience and the view!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We met friends there on a recommendation and the setting was perfect. Right on the lake's edge, with a view up the lake and the shimmering lights made the ambience faultless. Food was OK but you pay for the position and the ambience. If you are a foody and don't care about ambience then there are better choices for food quality and value. We had a fabulous time, the food was not the centre but it worked and we all left feeling terrific. In summary, if food is the sole reason to come then you will be disappointed. However, if you want affordable ambience Aquadolce is perfect and highly recommended. Service was excellent, parking across the street in their car park and accessible by boat for a lovely lunch setting.

“Lovely view, good food, but...”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The view is superb, you'll be sitting directly on the lakeshore looking down towards Como, so you get the glittering sun if you're there for lunch.
The menu offering is good and the food itself is really good.
The service was disappointing. The wine was served a environmental temperature, i.e. 33c. Had to chill it in ice, not so special for a good bottle of red. The waiters seemed sleepy.
Upon booking I had pointed out a special recurrence for one of us, nobody seemed to care although we were recognized for having booked. And all together there were 8 guests...
