We had been to this venue in the summer. Decided to go back recently. The vibe is of a family style, countryside yet elegant restaurant. We enjoied our first experience but this was even better. Probably autumn is when they express their cuisine at best: fresh pasta, mushrooms, truffles and delicious pumpkin preparations. Highly recommended for a good meal just outside Como.

I love white truffles and good food. The cook knows where to get his truffles and in the 20 times I have been there , I was never disappointed, which I can't say of some famous places in Milan or Piemonte. The price( which is clearly indicated) and quality is excellent also for the other plates. Friendly atmosphere. Outside in the summer is great.

What a discovery! The restaurant is located in a farmhouse villa on the outskirts of Como. It offers real authentic northern Italian food. The pasta is made fresh in house, and was great. The meat dishes are superb, as is their very extensive wine list. There are also tennis courts, horse riding, and a golf course (Villa d’Este) adjacent to the property. Was there for dinner, and can highly recommend! Check out the wine cellar, very impressive! Definitely worth the trip if staying in the Lake Como area.

Wonderful restaurant with exceptional food. The alfresco area is the place to dine at & don't miss the chance to visit their impressive semi-underground cellar!

A very intimate restaurant located close to the Villa d'Este golf club set back off the main street next to a horse stable and a tennis club. It is a restaurant often missed by people coming to Lake Como since it is not on the lake but in the outskirts. Antonio supervises a professional kitchen full of many specialities from his native Piemonte but also dishes using local ingredients, such as missoltini, dried lake fish. The cantina is well stocked with a selection of fine fine which his wife Patrizia sources from all over Italy. Whether sitting near the fire in one of the cozy corners during a cold winter day, or under the shade of the tree in the summer, the atmosphere is very special. And the food is exquisite but the best part of the experience at this restaurant is the warm welcome from the proprietors.
