Description: The restaurant La Piazzetta is located in the heart of Argegno, and it is the result of the cohesion between tradition and innovation. Our chief aim is the satisfaction of our clientele. First and foremost, here you can find simple dishes, top-notch produces and first-rate reception. Furthermore, we take a great care of the atmosphere, thanks to a careful and accurate musical selection: any visit becomes an event. We always try to improve ourselves: we are open seven days a week, and we prepare only seasonal dishes with seasonal produces. La Piazzetta is not a mere place to frequent, but an interpretation of your situations: a break, a ceremony, a meeting, a date or a lifestyle

The Piazzetta is in a stunning location - lovely al fresco dining in the summer in the piazza by candle light, often with live music and romantic atmospheric dining inside in the winter.

I have been many times now and have always thoroughly enjoyed the excellent food, combined with the attentive service and the fantastic wine selection.

The menu changes according to the season and there are usually some specials on offer. The pizzas are THE BEST in the area - thin crusted, crispy and delicious - try the simple but tasty primavera with buffalo mozzarella, baby tomatoes and rocket - ymmmmm!

From the new winter menu, try the duck breast as a starter - delicious finely sliced duck breast. The steaks are always excellent, succulent and cooked to perfection. The piazzetta is one of the few local restaurants to serve chicken - galletto to be precise, - delicious!. The menu is only in Italian, but the friendly staff are more than happy to explain and suggest dishes for you to try.

There is also a great selection of past dishes and superb salads, all served with home made bread and pizza bread.

Argegno is a great town to spend a few days, and La Piazzetta is certainly one of the top restaurants in the town. The location at the piazza is very welcoming, and we enjoyed 2 dinners here. We did the outside dining bit on our first visit and had 2 excellent pizzas with a bottle of red. On our second visit we ate inside upstairs, which was also very nice. Excellent risotto, marinated tuna, steak and chicken dishes with top service from the friendly and helpful staff. We agree with the previous reviews that La Piazzetta should not be missed if you visit Argegno.

The food and service were outstanding! I wish we had found this gem on our first night in Lake Como rather than our last.... as self pronounced foodies, this would have to rate as good a restaurant as anywhere in the world for an al a cate meal. Our entree, prosciutto and fungi pizza was bellisimo! If not enough by mains you can't go past the apple tart. Enjoy!
