“Don't go for the tourist menu”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We went here because of TA reviews. Ordered the tourist menu. It was not more than ok. We didn't like the trout and vino de la casa not so good.
But it seemed like other guests liked their pizzas. We regretted out choice!

“group visit”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I have been to this lovely restaurant in Como and they are always so lovely to me and my people, that I HAVE TO write something positive about them, because they deserve it...
I am a tour leader for a German company and I always bring my groups to the Don Lisander for lunch. This place is really good because they understand German, it's really welcoming and the food is very nice. We actually agreed the booking by choosing one of their menus on their website, where you can see the prices and what's included and the important thing is that when you bring the group there, your people get exactly what was agreed on the menu (which doesn't always happen in many places) and there are no hidden extra costs!! When you go you will see that you receive a good amount of food for a very good price. The restaurant is at a walking distance from where the bus can stop near the lake and it's also practically in front of where the boats leave to go to Bellagio and other places on the lake.
I can certainly advise this restaurant to all my colleagues that are looking for a good place to take their groups and keep them happy !!!

“Retro pizzeria”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This place should work on the retro feel with its barrel booths, lighting and spacious it has a good antipasti bar and the pizza's we had were fine but just need to go up a notch. It had those terrible food photos though which put us off and a tourists menu which usually make me turn on my heals. I cannot comment on any other food as we only had pizza it just wasn't good enough to make me want to go back.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

Situated in a basement on the lakefront, it was a great find!
Seemed like a family type of restaurant and had a great atmosphere.
Good home-cooked meals too!
