Very good food in a beautiful location on the banks of Lake Como at Cernobbio.
Excellent, friendly service and lots of fun!

The waiter had had a long busy day and was not shy about letting us know this when our party of four enquired if we could dine one evening. For such a top location, over looking Lake Como, the food and service were less than satisfying. The pasta meals looked and tasted like supermarket frozen take home and microwave dishes. The pizza faired slightly better.
The evening was bought to a close when we visited the poor parrot which has apparently graced the establishment for many years. It sits in a tiny cage near the toilets, a cage which would not allow the poor bird to stretch it's wings, it could hardly move! It was very upsetting.

We went for lunch to this restaurant which is well located in front of Come Lake thniking we would have a nice, simple meal. As soon as we sat at a table on the terrace, the owner came to tell our two (quiet) children to be careful with the tablecloth...quite surprising as a welcome word. Then we ordered water, and the waiter insisted on the fact we could order juices or sodas for the kids. We took pastas, and the food was really horrible (especially the lasagne and the pastas with cream and ham): we could not even heat half of it. We told the waiter that it was really bad and he did not seem to care...but what can he do? In brief, both service anf food are horrible. the worstexperience in a restaurant we ever had!

We chose the restaurant because of its beautiful location on the water for a light lunch. From the start the waiter was rude. He clearly wanted us to chose one of the specials of the day and when two of us chose pizza he was dismissive and incredibly rude. Although the two pasta dishes and the pizza were fine they were spoiled by not being served together and continually having to ask for water, bread etc.
Would not go back.

Went here for lunch today and ended up leaving before we had ordered. Waiter was rude obviously not happy that we only wanted pizzas (so why do they offer them?) and told us we couldn't have side salads as they only came with main courses and we hadn't ordered any! Will not go back. Plenty of other great places to eat nearby so don't waste your money. Bar Onda opposite served us great pizzas and salads with a smile.
