This restaurant has a lovely paneled interior and has a classy ambiance. The food is first class both lunch and dinner, and the wines are high quality at surprisingly low prices. The service is as good as the food. This was the best restaurant we experienced in the area.

My wife and I ate here on the last night of our honeymoon, we came across it after walking down the road from our hotel. The location as with all of Lake Como was stunning, with the bar overlooking the lake. There was a wide range of food on the menu, meat, pasta, pizza etc. I had Mussels which were... More

Ironically, we did not have gelato (which if you check my other reviews is truly ironic given my wife's penchant for gelato). Great lunch. The pizza and pasta were delicious.

We had dinner on one evening and started with Bruschetta which was the worst I ever had, it was a paste tomato on bread when I questioned this I was told "we could have prepared this with real tomatoes.... We had pasta for main course which was fine, its not difficult to get it right !

During a week long stay in Tremezzo, we ate at the Helvetia 5 times. The staff were lovely and service was excellent. The menu already offers plenty of choice for vegetarians (which we are), but the staff were happy to advise, and substitute ingredients on request. We never felt rushed. On some nights we shared dishes and were provided with... More

We ate here for lunch the day we arrived, really because it was the first place we found. Both of us had pizza and while there was nothing wrong with it, it was quite heavy. I learned later that to get a really good Italian pizza you need to go to a pizzeria, not a bar/gelateria, so perhaps my expectations... More
