A view to die for, basic Italian home cooking done well. Lots of food nice flavors,rustic presentation, friendly service,drinkable house wine.loved it.
The dog and kids are all over the place , it is like one big Italian family all together with mamma cooking GREAT.
You have to take this place for what it is and you will love it.

Stunning setting up very winding and narrow mountain roads with views of lake como. Very vast quantities of food brought out- anti pasti, pasta, meat course, dessert... Had to refuse cheese course. Unfortunately aside from the pasta, much of the food was disappointing and my espresso at the end was burnt. Service was lovely though and it was a good way to experience lots of different foods.

I had read the trip advisor reviews before choosing this place. It certainly Iives upto the other reviews . A crazy drive up there , get a local taxi who knows the score! Family run place ,no menus , traditional and authentic local experience. About 8 starters , 3 pastas, 3 meat dishes, cheeseboard, lemon sorbet to die for covered in vodka!!! Coffee and then Fuits of the forest grappa, actually nice grappa if such a thing exists. Go and visit them, look for a real experience and have some fun. Sadly too dark to se the lake but would be stunning!

We were really looking forward to eating here and asked our hotel if we should make reservations. I was told that before 8pm on a Monday would not be a problem. We drove up the narrow winding road to find a very dark restaurant. The only website I could find said they were closed on Tuesday's, not Monday. There was no sign on the door with their hours so for all I know they were closed for the season. Typical of Italy and not the end of the world but a word of caution for others...Call yourself or make sure your hotel calls ahead of time!

A secret place for a unforgettable dinner with a view over the lake como from the very top of the mountains.
A typical and very friendly Italian place to dine out with a "woaw" effect! Must place!
