We were sent here by the concierge at Villa D'Este and the recommendation could not have been better. The food and service were simply amazing. We shared the lobster Catalan and the whole branzino and both were superb. Wine selections were impressive as well. It's a lovely setting: located in a former church, the walls are white and a soaring staircase leading to the second-floor balcony dominates the main room. We will definitely return.

A lovely restaurant which accommodated the children (aged 8 and 10) very well in spite of a formal menu. Excellent presentation and delicious food. A good wine list with extensive variety. Very friendly staff and service. Most certainly can recommend it as a lovely (almost elegant) restaurant for a family to enjoy.

Researching on amazing places to try during our 4 days in Lake Como, we stumbled upon this George Clooney and Robert De Niro favorite. We're from LA and are regulars at Ago, so we're not too impressed with spots that celebrities like to hit. But once we saw that this place was regarded as a Michelin Plate on the Michelin Guide, we were sold.

La Colombetta is a Sardinian restaurant run by three sisters. A hostess, a server, and the chef. I believe one of their husbands also serves and most likely served us as well. Let's just say, we were treated very, very well and we're now friends on Facebook.

Upon walking in, we were greeted and seated immediately. A complimentary glass of prosecco is served as soon as you're seated. We went ahead and started ordering our courses the way we like: each á la cart, each a different dish, that way we can switch in between.

When the plate of tagliatelle pasta with black truffles was placed in front of me, the smell instantly made my mouth water. Once I put it in my mouth, I should've won an Academy Award for best Food Porn Actress. You know how Meg Ryan did that fake orgasm scene in 'When Harry Met Sally?' My sounds were even better and I'm not even ashamed to admit it.

The lamb chops were also amazing, and at the end, you're given a variety of digestifs and meringues for dessert. 3 glasses of digestifs (which Angelo kept refilling because he enjoyed speaking to us lol), a bottle of wine, and the prosecco later, and we're walking out of there with two bottles of cello to bring back to the states, lol.

I witnessed other guests waiting for their check, only for them to realize they have to pay up front. That's maybe the only problem with the service/restaurant that I found, but it's not an issue worth worrying about.
