Great food with a heavenly view. Book in advance - this place is on fire! Excellent service. They will make any dish for you even if it's not in the menu. Been there twice in a row - it's that great!

The views from this place is spectacular. The restaurant is really nice. The food was just ok. You should try to book your reservations while it's still light out to take in the scenery.

A fantastic little restaurant tucked away in Cernobbio. Great food, great service, and spectacular views.It's quite a way up, you might want to get a taxi if you are staying in Como!

Food was good and fresh. I had the tuna with vegtables. Atmosphere is cozy and the resturant is not big. Service was good. Best with the resturant was the amazing view over the Como lake, only that grants a visit at this resturant.

Charming and touristy, with ok Italian food and kitchy touches. Some people swear by it. Love their table decorations of green plants in paper bags, but it's expensive for average food...you're buying the experience.

We were invited by a friend to enjoy the food and the spectacular view and we liked both very much. Good food and wine and the view over the lake is unique. I can really recommend this place for both the view and food. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Location is excellent, price level is too(!) high for an four course... More

For a spectacular view, location and food, you should try this wonderful restaurant on the mountains overlooking Como. The food was excellent especially the special of risotto and white truffles. We tried the cod on crushed potatoes for main along with the lamb. Both were excellent. Highly recommended and so romantic :)

We have been to Gatto Nero twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. While the sunset view and evening scene are seductive, we had the better experience at lunch. For starters, the restaurant is half full and the wait staff is much more available and conversational. In fact they told me, no arguments, what I was going to order... More
