Tried this place for dinner while staying in Moltrasio, awful food, simply awful. The lasagna was worse than frozen food, might have actually been from the supermarket. My wife's tortellini were dry and semi-raw. Just find someplace else to eat.

Had an evening meal here whilst staying at a nearby hotel. It's a one man band, he does everything - which includes giving a warm welcome and recommending wines. The menu is only in Italian but the owner made charming translations. We had a really...More

First of all the positive comments. It's a one-man band, with him being chef and waiter; and he gave us a lovely welcome. I wish, however, the food had been better. Everything we had was microwaved - when we heard the "ping", we knew that...More

The chef is the patron and the waiter. Pasta with fresh mushrooms as recommended by the chef were fantastic.

Surprising that someone claims to have had a bad meal at this lovely small restaurant . I wrote a review in mid July and stand by my strong recommendation. We visited Hostaria three times for lunch in the eight days we were at Villa d'Este....More

We chose this place because it got an average rating of 4.5 stars on tripadvisor. We were extremely disappointed. Poor food (including un fresh seafood), high prices, and the cook kept microwaving stuff. 4.5 stars guys? Really??? Either this place has really gone downhill, or...More

Nice small cozy place with great food and a short distance from our hotel. We met a couple at Villa d'Este who recommended Hostaria, and it even exceeded their glowing description. My husband and I had the tortelloni and the veal and some outstanding Gorgonzola...More

Lovely intimate restaurant that only seats about 20 or so. We had a great bottle of Amarone, my wife had an insalata Caprese and then unbelievably good home made salume. I had melon and port wine followed by veal. All courses were of the highest...More

Cosy restaunat. Excellent food. Best fish and beef we had in Italy. Dessert was delicious too. Coffee was served with a good quality chocolate. Highly recommended. Cash only & no Englis menu.

Very small upscale place, lovely decor ...only about twenty five or so seats. In operation since 1985. Owner does not advertise and has a steady upscale local clientel. Quality of food and service matches or exceeds the top five restaurants in town. Wine list is a bargain considering the quality and selection.
