Wife and I lunched here recently - very good pizza with great service. Pizza serving sizes are quite big so would recommend sharing between two as opposed to one each. Very tasty pizzas and wine cheap and good. Positioned by the road so great view of lake Como. Recommend for an inexpensive and tasty Italian lunch.

Thank Marco L

This is a pretty restaurant to eat at, alongside the main road and views of the lake. The prawn dishes are particularly tasty, and also possibly the biggest prawns you've ever seen.

Had dinner after arriving back in Cadenabbia by ferry following a day visiting lake Como sites . The food was very good , service was also and prices seemed very reasonable for the area . Would recommend.

Three generations, seven of us in total ranging from 5 to 75 descended on Helvetia for a week day lunch.

The menu is standard Italian, which is what we wanted. Nothing to fancy, the kids wanted margarita pizza and spaghetti with tomato source. The grown ups went for carbonara, penne with a Salmon and creme source and we stole some of the kids pizza.

The service was friendly and quick, they did a good G&T to kick off then the food followed, living up to it's Italian heritage. The youngest daughter went through a full plate of pasta probably for the first time unaided. Praise indeed.

We had a great time, many thanks to the team there.

My fiancé and I just wanted something small and dessert and a few vinos. We got the pesto lasagne and the dark chocolate cake, both were absolutely delicious!! The guy who delivered the lasagne had a bit of a grumpy attitude but generally nice vibe there. We also had some red wine and highly recommend the cabernet sauvignon (we just got this by the individual glasses), it was so smooth and delicious - definitely the highlight for us!
Will be back during our stay I'm sure.
