To enjoy this restaurant a car is almost a necessity as it is located about 15 minutes from Bellagio at the bottom of San Primo in a little village called Piano Rancio.

We booked a table for 15 and there were other tables with bookings of similar numbers. The chalet can seat around 150 people both upstairs and downstairs.

The atmosphere is informal and relaxing and the service suits the ambiance. All 15 of us were very happy with our choices of antipasti, primi and secondi courses. Favorites included "Lardo", "Pizzoccheri" and anything with Polenta as we dining in a house that specialises in Polenta. The restaurant caters for those with a sweet tooth also.

Parking in the vicinity is always available and the menu is online if you want to check other options to Polenta.

We were all happy with the experience and found the bill reasonable.

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.

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 :)
