“True Italian experience”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

This was a lovely little restaurant. The feeling of traditional, relaxed dining. The food was simple, but so very tasty. Would happily have gone back again

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

A return visit after 5 years, This time there was a torrential thunderstorm just as we arrived. You had to be there to believe it! Fortunately our outside table was under cover and we had a terrific evening as did the diners - it just added to the whole experience. The lady owner is a great character and takes everything in her stride. As other reviews say, this is a genuine place with good home cooking. Lasagne comes highly recommended - but other dishes our party had were equally good.

“Great homecooking”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Dinner is served on a lovely terrace with lake view. The food is excellent and much cheaper than the restaurants around the corner on the main piazza. The wine comes in 1/2 or 1/4 caraffes and in this location it's very hard to stop ordering...

“It doesn't get any better”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I have visited this restaurant five times in 20 years. The food is great, setting marvellous. On a warm day sit outside and you will understand why Lake Como is one of the most delightful places on the planet. It's the total package of food, wine and atmosphere that make this absolutely outstanding.
