We would like to thank all our guests that visit and reviewed us in our first 8 years of activity, Deborah & Joost.Our Winebar-Enoteca is specialized in platters prepared at the moment with local sliced cuts and cheeses.we don't not serve pasta, or maincourses because our philosophy is doing just a few things...but done in the proper way. Genuine ospitality and our motto "come like a guest go like a friend"

They keep some stunning wines in this lovely little Cantina. Service was excellent, the prices great value for money and the wines fab. They also have available some lovely produce sold in various formats as a sort of tapas to accompany the wine.

Very nice place - and trust me, I'm a very demanding client. Excelent selection of local food, cheese and and ham. The owners are very friendly and there's a very warm feeling overall.

We visited this lovely wine bar as a family. Very family friendly. Really good wine list . Offered pizza slices for the kids, although they enjoyed a lot of our cheese and meat platter too. We will definitely return.

Good Evening, you can park your car along the lake, then you have to climb the stairs (next to the farmacy of Tremezzo) to reach Cantina Follie. Kindest regards, Joost van Sloten
