Our favourite restaurant on the lake. And we tried quite a few! They even helped us moor the boat.

Outstanding menu, such warm friendly staff, and a setting to die for. This is Italian dining at its best. Great wine list as well.

The kids enjoyed feeding the fish and birds as well.

What a lovely spot and little hidden gem - almost don't want to write this review. We were lucky enough to learn about this restaurant from some friends who live nearby; we had a delicious lazy sunny lunch here with them and absolutely loved the restaurant and food. I would highly recommend the tasting menu, a table outside and a lovely cold glass of rose. Overlooking Lake Como this is a wonderful local restaurant with gourmet food.

The restaurant is very cute, right at the harbor's edge. The famous dish is the lemon ravioli, which is really something special. The rest of the meal (we did 4 courses) was just okay. The fried calamari entrée was not really appropriate for an entrée (should be an appetizer). The series of desserts were very good.

For whatever reason, there were a ton of smokers there and it undermined the meal. I don't hold the restaurant responsible for this, but it might a reality of it being a local spot.

Title says it all...
It was and we did.
Fantastic food sitting with our friends and family watching the colours change on the mountains across the lake as the sun sets behind us.
Romantic - you better believe it
Beautifully prepared food in a beautiful location.

We have been a number of times over the years. The food is always fantastic as is the service and of course the location. It's absolutely the best place to arrive by boat, moor right next to the outdoor covered pagoda and eat your meal there on the water. Their scallops or prawn appetizers are amazing, the lemon ravioli to die for, and then the lamb or seabass - fantastic.
Deserts are an interesting selection too - just go. Who knows you may end up sitting next to celebrities going incognito
