Elegant, refined restaurant within an antique setting (walls, bulding etc). The beef fillet was excellent though the medium cooking was more of a rare. Facing directly the Como Lake, it's definetely a great place for a good lunch

the atmosphere is very nice and chick, upper class. If you want to impress your business partners it is the right place. Service very accurate and multilanguage. Variety of dishes - mainly fish but also meat. Quality/price good average.

We selected this place based on a common indicator; it was crowded and did not seem touristy. Very good food and wines. Moderate pricing. Friendly atmosphere. Real local food experience.

What a shame!!! Nice atmosphere, food is good, however, the waiters are there to take advantage :(! They push everyone to order more, will offer poor advise in order to double your bill. Wines can and will be tripled if you take their recommendations!! Highly embarrassing considering I used to go there often. Recently each time has been a rip... More

LOVE THIS. And it was my second time till I could not choose another place while passing by I just had to stop and go in. Unrivable and so romantic. Gran Antipasto a mix of cold cuts and cheeses is very rich and you can hardly take then pasta and meat so you simply have to choose one of the... More

We came across this restaurant by chance. A real success. The staff were welcoming and the service exemplary. We chose fish for both starter and main course. Beautifully presented and and of real quality. Reasonably priced and with a delightful ambience. To be highly recommended.

Our hotel restaurant manager recommended this restaurant as he used to work there - had wonderful things to say about it. We were seated outside as there was a function inside the restaurant which was full to capacity. Our table overlooked stunning views of the lake. We ordered gnocchi, seafood risotto with fish caught from the lake and the tenderest... More
