“fantastic view”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Request outdoor seating to really enjoy this restaurant. Food was good but you are charged for everything, including bread on the table.
We had veal milanese and eggplant parm both were good. We had a green salad - straight from the restaurant's garden We also enjoyed a 1/2 bottle of red wine . The staff was a bit slow and seem more interested in chatting with the local guests.

“Shame poor main course ruined evening”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This restaurant has a wonderful location with its views over Lake Como and we thought we were going to have a really special evening. The first courses were fine but when the main course arrived it looked unappetising and was in fact completely inedible. Sadly our complaints were not treated sympathetically and we were made to feel that we were complaining unnecessarily, and so we left feeling very let down.

“0utstanding food, view and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights in Tremezzo, what a very special treat it was to dine in such a special restaurant and to sit in the terrace and experience food that tasted perfect, we both had filet steak cooked exactly the way we wanted and the owner recommended wine from the region-excellent choice! Adding to the food we enjoyed a blissful, relaxed, romantic evening and to top it all, fabulous views as night fell!!

“Magical”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

To get a table outside with a lake view we were advised to book a table in advance which seemed to be a good idea as all outdoor tables were almost full when we arrived. When making the reservation remember to request a table with a lake view, the view is so fabulous you definitely don't want to miss that!

We ordered goat cheese and mozarella/tomato salads for starters and for main course we ordered veal chop for 2 cooked in a coal grill + fried zucchini. For a dessert we shared a house tiramisu with fresh berries. I'm not going into details but the food (and wine) was simply fantastic. Service was very professional and attentive, however, the only complaint was that we had to wait for the bill for a long time. The setting is intimate, almost magical. The overall experience; atmosphere, views, food, wine and service was one of the best we've ever had in a restaurant.

Not the cheapest place to have dinner but definitely worth the price. Aperitives, starters, mains, 1/2 bottle of wine, water, 1x dessert and espressos ~150e for 2 persons.

Note that the restaurant is located in the hills above the Via Regina "main street" and lake shore hotels of Tremezzo. Roughly a 30min walk from the lake shore, easiest to reach by own car.

“Wow what a location, shame the food just doesn't quite match”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

What a location, perched up high overlooking lake Como towards Belagio and Tremezzo and beyond. On a clear warm night, eating out on the terrace is just a fabulous, and I mean a fabulous way to dine.

The host was friendly and attentive. We ate with friends and had a great evening. The food was in the main very nice, I had Veal scallops, which dissapointingly had two large bits of grizzle which made it difficult to cut. Tasty but you don't expect Veal to be tough. The service was polite, but a little bit hit and miss. We ordered two bottles of water, which we only realised as we left the restaurant we had only had one glass from each bottle as the waitress had put them on a serving trolley and had served them to other tables. We also were at first served the wrong entrees. The wine recommend by the owner was great and complemented the food very well.

Overall a stunning place to dine, we have eaten in many iconic restaunts but there is very few which can match this place for location and view. It just has the wow factor. The food is fine, but just does not match the view. I'd still go again, the view is worth it.
