Probably a bit clichéd to call Bistro Argegno a hidden gem but that's exactly what it is. Excellent selections of meats, cheese and wines in a warm and friendly setting. The proprietor, Roberto is passionate about the provenance of his produce and extremely knowledgeable about the wines on offer from the various regions of Italy. As it's not in the main plazza of Argegno it isn't as busy as other cafe/restaurants but definitely our favourite during our stay.
Thank you Roberto for your genuine hospitality.

Make the effort to leave the front streets of Argegno and walk the 50m into the lane of this intimate and personal Bistro. We followed Tripadvisor and are happy we did, enjoying an exceptional aperitivo moment. Spending an hour here, we enjoyed a committed owner's recommendations of excellent cheeses and wines but also a number of locals dropping by and creating a very genuine feeling. Although they are obviously newly established, they film a gap in Argegno and we will definitely come back next time we are in the area, we even went back after dinner but they had already closed! Great and friendly staff - keep up the good work!

We stumbled upon the Bistro as we were walking around Argegno. Roberto was a welcoming host and with two very young children made us feel very welcome. The craft beers and wines on offer are excellent accompanied by simple authentic locally sourced meats and cheeses. The homemade lasagne is highly recommended!

This is an informal relaxing environment where you can enjoy a drink out of the sun and to mingle with the locals who also really rate this establishment.

My husband an I run into the hidden Bistro on our way to rent a boat in Argegno. The two people that were working there were wonderful and so accommodating! They offered to create a plate of meats and cheeses for us- we just told them a ballpark price and they filled a bag with delicious meats, cheeses, and breads.... we also got drinks here. It was a modern and quaint place.. this was one of our favorite lunches!! Perfect for a Picnic!!

My husband and I visit Lake Como area several times a year. Bistro Argegno is the best place we have discovered in a long time! Roberto is a terrific host! He supports local producers of regional products and offers these delicious treats to his guests to enjoy with wine or cocktails for the most formidable aperitivo experience you will find. A true gem!
