“Well worth going, you will not be disappointed”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We walked to the restaurant from Tremezzo, pleasant if you follow the roads and take your time. The restaurant is rustic and quite small. We had reserved a table on the terrace from where you get a view of the lake. The food and service were both excellent. On leaving the staff pointed out a shortcut which reduced the time taken to get back to Tremezzo.

“Most Fabulous mountain restaurant in Tremezzo, Lake Como!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

For a very fun fabulous dining experience come to La Fagurida! You will love the beautiful drive that ends with a delightful walk down a lovely path that ends at an Italian Farm House where you are treated to a divine Italian culinary experience! We had read an old New York Times review that gave this restaurant 5 stars! We went for an adventure and were "blown away"!! 3 inch thick T-bone steak that rivals the best steaks of Texas!!!! Get the polenta to give you an incredible taste sensation with the steak! Must have the tiramisu and the cream caramel!!! Ask for the "gold beer" and of course the Italian Cabernet!!! Bon Appetite!

“Best Dinner!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We found out about this restaurant from the N.Y. Times review. The location was high up on a hill overlooking Lake Como. I had the most fabulous steak with a cheese polenta! What a delicious combination and the wine was incredible. I had the BEST creme caramel (flan) in my life! A definite must see and the staff was so friendly and welcoming! Will definitely go back!

“A bit strange...”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Getting there is a bit crazy. The road is super windy and dangerous. After getting there, the driveway is so tiny. When we walked in - they seemed confused we were there. We sat outside, looking out to a somewhat open/closed view of the lake. There may be only 2 spots that can see the lake. After that, the service was fair. The beginning was ok. The last hour was very poor. We never saw anyone after that. I speak Italian, and I'm pretty sure they made some joke when we came in because when I turned - hearing something - they said "Oh, he heard us!" The food was pretty good though. The tiramisu was by far the best about this place - it truly was phenomenal. Overall, I'm a bit disappointed in the review from 36 Hours NYTimes, which recommended this place.

“Not good”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

our initial approach to the house seemed to promise something special, the parking area and the entrance to the house were all very nice. Once we were inside the house was decorated in a rustic but dated style , and in reality only two or three tables would have a reasonable view of the surrounds.
We choose the rabbit which we shared, it had been been pre roasted and reheated and was presented at the table in an olive oil just type of sauce, but very disappointing and dry. We ordered grilled vegetables for two which arrived at the table, also reheated, which consisted of one halved tomato, four or five slices of zucchini and three or four slices of egg plant. The vegetables were not hot enough and I thought way too expensive at 12 euro,No service to speak of, I don't like to be too critical of other people's efforts but overall not a good enough experience.
