Well placed around the corner from our hotel. Nice open front (although noisy scooters are a pain) allows a great view of the lake and mountains.The food was SO delicious, a proper taste of Italy with friendly service, yes they're under staffed ao service is a bit slow but it seems to be a family business so cut them some slack, the food is worth the wait.
My son and I like hot and spicy food (especially my son who is a bit of a loon for spicy food and seems to have an asbestos mouth) so we ordered a 'Dinamite' pizza, when it arrived we scoffed at the paltry helping of chilis mixed into the saice. One bite and we realised we were mistaken, chili flakes mixed into the sauce too so if you like it hot and spicy choose this pizza - it burned the hair off my feet.
The other meals we had, carbinara, mussels, schnitzel, white fish and lasagne were completely delicious and we cleaned every plate even if we were already full.

The food was good however our pizzas arrived 20 minutes after the pasta, which disturbed our meal. I would recommend this if you all order the same dishes.

We were staying close to Ristorante Rodrigo and as we normally had dinner in our hotel close by, we decided to have lunch here on the terrace. Ambience was not wonderful and as mentioned previously, service not particularly friendly. I ordered salmon ravioli with a prawn sauce, but somehow finished up with tortellini with chopped walnuts in a sauce! The meal was perfectly acceptable and I couldn't be bothered to engage with the waiter and send the food back. My OH had the calzone, which again was OK. Overall was a bit underwhelmed with the experience and if we had been staying longer would probably not use the restaurant again.

Just a short walk from hotel.
Good without being special Italian meal but service was average and very unfriendly even when trying to engage.
Only people sort of shown any sort of friendly customer service was a few Italian customers which were only 10per cent of clientele.
Wine was ok and as all Lake Como very cheap.
So wandered down to Tremezzo other nights
