This restaurant was recommended by a very gracious host in a local wine bar but we arrived to an empty space on the covered veranda so were a bit doubtful of the outcome. The first course quieted any fears. If you want huge portions go to an all-you- can-eat for these were small but perfect servings, beautifully presented and wonderfully... More

Lovely place about 10 minutes walk from the ferry terminal in Cerinobbio. It's uphill from the island and the next building past the police station, through an entrance between two pillars. They have car parking and we sat on an open terrace (bring a light coat for cooler nights) The food was delicious but the place is a little pretentious... More

This restaurant is absolutely delicious and very charming, I really loved it! The menu has typical dishes from the region and so we tried different things such as the porcini mushroom salad (special of the day), prosciutto and caprese salad to start, then had a mix of different pastas, risottos and meats (we were a big group so had the...

Perhaps the best meal I have had in Lombardy. The host is a super host. Warm friendly and accommodating. Service is wonderful and the setting - close to Lake Como is amazing. This is well worth any detour from Milano.

It's not lakeside Como or quaint but these people know their food and wine. The porcini salad was excellent as was my wife's lobster spaghettini.

Easy walk within Cernobbio town area. Dinner is usually always good quality with reasonable prices and good service. Owner is usually on site and friendly and welcoming.

We got a n amuse bouche as a started which was nice. First course we had vegetable soup which was tasty and very nice presented. Also a fresh Mushrooms salad that... More

We had a great night with dinner here. The service & staff was excellent and the food was awesome. The location (had dinner on the terrace) was amazing. Staff were really friendly and spoke very good English. The wine recommendation was perfect. we enjoyed the night here. Price / quality is good. We will be back.

What a great place.... We originally had a booking for 3, which at the last minute we changed to 5 and the staff happily accomodate us. I think the first thing to remember is this is Italy... The service may seem slower and of course it is, but by no means does that mean it is lax. It simply means,... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel and they were spot on. great food. Asparagus, with fried egg, a risotto with mushrooms that was really incredible, roasted pig and a steak. Space is not particularly remarkable but the food is really good. After going we read in the Daily Mail George and Amal (Clooney) had eaten here two nights before... More
