One of the few open in lecco on tuesday evening. There is really a lot of dishes' choice, from many kinds of pasta to few fishes or meat. Almost everything is fresh and waiting time is low. Both the owner and the waiters are very kind and simple persons!

The restaurant is one of the local favorites. Since it is not on the main square the prices are by far more reasonable and cuisine is less touristy. I had 3 course dinner and all was excellent - the octopus salad, assortments of warm meats, the local pasta.

We stumbled upon the restaurant whilst walking in Lecco. We ate in the outside area under the gazebo, with a view of the lake. Limited English speaking, however, that adds to the charm of this excellent family restaurant. Food was lovely from the complimentary bruschetta, the raviola consomme, the braised beef in red wine sauce, and the creme caramel. I... More

We went to Orestino for lunch. It was the best lunch we had in the town. The service was fast and the food was delicious. Family run restaurant. The atmosphere is very nice. There is a garden with the tables which you can enjoy the view of the lake.

Small family restaurant open from 12 to 14.30 and 19 till 21.45 Great meat ! Actually anything is just great! Home made food from best sources. Great cheese platter. Very basic indoors but great service! Despite the fact that they don't speak English very well

If you want to have a taste of real Lombard cuisine you should not miss Orestino, alias Ristorante al Pontile in Lecco, on the South Eastern branch of lake Como. It has been there for 3 generations and now is run by Orestino's son, Romeo, with his daughter and wife. Bollito misto (mixed beef meet steamed) is great, according to... More

Visiting the restaurant is a bit like travelling back in time - and what a pleasant journey it is! The interior is a bit dull but the garden very pleasant. The food is perfectly matched to this very traditional restaurant and so is the superb service. My guess is that every dish is very good - our food was absolutely... More

It would be hard to fault this interesting family-run restaurant on the shores of Lake Como in Lecco. Much of the cuisine is local and many dishes are served at the table on trolleys, with senior members of the family taking charge. I enjoyed my Milanese veal cutlet and my wife loved her veal cutlet with mushrooms. The vegetables are... More

Well known for it boiled meats trolley. We didn't go for this and chose two fish dishes which were fresh and well cooked. The place is retro and lovely. It takes you back to a different time great to take it all in and enjoy the experience.
