Description: We would like to thank all our guests that visit and reviewed us in our first 8 years of activity, Deborah & Joost.Our Winebar-Enoteca is specialized in platters prepared at the moment with local sliced cuts and cheeses.we don't not serve pasta, or maincourses because our philosophy is doing just a few things...but done in the proper way. Genuine ospitality and our motto "come like a guest go like a friend"

My wife and I had a free day in Milan in October 2012 and decided the day before to go to Lake Como. In trying to find what to do, I stumbled upon the TripAdvisor page for Cantina Follie and saw the excellent reviews. So less than 24 hours before arriving, I sent an e-mail to do a wine tasting the next day. Joost replied quickly and with much anticipation, we went to Tremezzo the next day (for those not used to the ferries, read the schedules online). Joost's wife Deborah spent three hours explaining wine, wine making, and even the biology of the grapes over five excellent wines. We ordered their meat and cheese platter which was also excellent. We had a blast and would highly recommend Cantina Follie to anyone visiting Lake Como.

This place attracts a friendly and fun crowd. It's great for tasting wonderful wines by the glass and eating antipasto, mostly a great assortment of meats and chesses. Plenty for dinner though if you've had a good sized lunch. There are some larger tables that you may have to share but we met some fun people that way. It's a bit tricky to find so get good directions in advance.

We stopped here for a couple drinks after dinner. The place is lovely - great cosy atmosphere. One of the servers helped us to pick out a bottle of wine to take home with us and was very knowledgeable. We loved it, and would have come back again if we hadn't discovered it only on our last night there!
