This restaurant hosted our dinner for our Grand Circle tour and it was excellent. The chef and owner prepared a special dinner for our group. Don't miss this one!

We stayed for four nights at La Cuccina della Marianna and had dinner for three of those evenings. We enjoyed every course, every meal, every evening. The dishes are created by the expert and adventurous chef Ty, using the lake’s heirloom recipes and seasonal local ingredients. The four-course menu (choice of two, three or four courses) changes daily, replacing the... More

Starting a meal with ice cream is a first for me! Parmmasen Ice Cream for Entree? It was certainly different but suprisingly maybe a bit too strong for my tastes. (Although it was good.) The main was rabbit and having never eaten it before I was surprised at how delicious and tender it was. Staff were fantastic and the scenery... More

The chef changes his menu monthly but each night is set with 4 courses. We had a tomato tart that was out of this world. Next came the pear ravioli. The pears were from the tree outside the window of our table. The main course was a vegetarian meatloaf. Oh the awesome flavors! The meal ended with a blackberry pudding.... More

We were lucky to stay a full week at La Marianna Hotel so we could eat here every night and sample the wonderful food and menu which changed daily. TY is a most interesting and talented chef, photographer, host, wine expert,etc.etc. I don't know why this retaurant isn't number 1 because it should be. Thank you an amazing culinary experiance....

Had a lovely night at La Cucina della Marianna. The hosts were very friendly and the food was delicious. We asked for a wine recommendation and were not disappointed. Would recommend to anyone who wants to have an enjoyable evening with great food.

A group of us chose this restaurant because of its reputation. We were not disappointed. We began with apertif on the patio overlooking beautiful Lake Como. Once we moved inside the owner and chef welcomed us and explained the menu. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The fish from the lake is fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. It was a truly...
