We ate in this lovely setting overlooking the lake on two occasions. The appetizers are authentic and we'll prepared but each pasta dish is a benchmark experience. The rustic homemade gnocchi with mushrooms is the stuff dreams are made of. The tagliatelle with rabbit sauce is a meal in itself. It's almost unfair to write the main course is good but a letdown after such an amazing begining. Friendly service.

Great restaurant...beautiful views of the lake. Lake fish was fresh and exquisitely cooked. Server was helpful and attentive. Excellent wine list. All the food from the bread to the entrees were super fresh. Reasonably priced. Highly recommended when in Sala Comacina.

When my wife and I come on holiday we like to try different restaurants, very rarely coming back to the same one more than once. Tomorrow we plan our 5th visit in 6 days. The only reason we did not go on Tuesday was that it was closed (in lieu of normal Monday closing, this week being open for the Public Holiday celebrating the birth of the Italian Republic in 1946)
My wife and I have taken to working our way through the menu...each having a different Antipasto/Primo Piatto and Secondo Piatto each evening. We have been delighted and never disappointed each evening we have been. The chef uses the finest ingredients...delicious and beautifully presented. We did not have to wait too long for our meals and our waitress was attentive, pleasant but not obstrusive.
The view over the lake towards the Island and Mountains is the best on Lake Como and there is an outside terraced eating area.
The prices are reasonable, in line with other restaurants, considering the location and standard of cuisine.
We heartily recommend it!

While not the best restaurant I have ever been to, the food is tasty and well cooked.

Worth checking out if you are in the area

We were staying in Sala Comacina and tried a few restaurants. This was the best value and the most relaxed. We shared a duck starter and then rabbit with pasta. Delicious. My husband then had sardines and I had steak followed by semi freddo. An excellent meal and very good value.
