“Great local Recommendation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We have Italian friends that live on the shores of Lake Como and they had been telling us about this restaurant for quite some time. This time around we got them to drive us there and it was well worth it.

The dishes we had with polenta were all great. The polenta served was not the liquidy type that is prepared in other parts of Italy, but firmer. In my opinion this version is infinitely better. Make no mistake, the place does not only serve polenta, and the polenta actually crops up with a lot of other things. We had the house special polenta which was excellent together with a selection of starters. Good wine list, service and incredible views at a reasonable price.

“Food with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Although I am not a great lover of Polenta dishes this is a lovely restaurant, long steep drive to get to it but the view from the panoramic windows is wonderful.

Faultless, friendly and fast service. If you're into Polenta you'll love it, if not choose a dish with meat in it :)
