Normally, when a restaurant disappoints with bad food or inept service, I simply do not return or recommend the establishment. I seldom take the time to write a bad review, but in this case, the following review is well-deserved. At the conclusion of a high-end river cruise, we elected to extend with 3 nights in Lake Como, along with 33... More

Uncomplicated menu, where the food was well executed. The room has that "been in the family for generation or two" vibe...low key, pleasant service.

The best meal we've had in Cernobio. A very friendly host, great cuisine and reasonable prices. Most enjoyable and definitely most recommendable.

I had a business lunch. Quite nice atmosphere, menu to the point and not over-complicated. Good service. Food of high quality. Portions are rather small. Price is rather high, but maybe normal for this corner of the world.

Enjoyed great wine and pasta with white truffles for lunch at this cute restaurant. Service and food were first rate. I enjoyed some wild boar with beans along with agnollotti and white truffles. We brought our own wines with us and the service was great!

This is exactly what I envisioned when imagining the perfect Italian dining experience. I won't repeat all the rave reviews contributed by others, but just want to note that (a) the pasta was perfectly al dente, and (b) they shave truffles onto your meal at the table. That's right, truffles. if you can even get that in the U.S., it... More

I was invited by real good friends as they wanted me to test the restaurant and this was a real surprise: nothing appears to from the outside, there is a corridor to access the dining room and then starts the magic: the best carpaccio I ever ate, a delicious "vitello al tartuffo" and a superb red wine from Valtellina -...
