Came here for light meal after a day out on our tour. Food served was of an excellent standard and their hot chocolate very impressive. Recommend - not 'fine dining per second but very good at what they do.

This restaurant is right opposite the lake so good views, partly under cover - good when raining! - and also has a beautiful old inside dining room if required. Quite good choice on the menu, had some lovely lake fish.

We had a meal here after spending the day exploring the lake. We walked past a couple of times as we were staying in the area and from walking past I would never have set foot in the restaurant. From the outside it looked run down and totally uninspiring, however thanks to Trip advisor and the good reviews we decided... More

We ate here twice during our stay at a Hotel nearby. Very nice service and the pasta was very good. Drinks were average, but the location which is right on the lake made up for it. Try to eat on the small outdoor patio. Watching the Lake and the people walking by adds to the atmosphere of the meal. It... More

When the food arrived, it was hot and perfect. It was the best pasta we have had on lake como. The views of the lake were great and we watched the moon rise over... More

We wanted to have a quick bite before leaving Tremezzo, and we saw this little restaurant on our way to the car ferry the day before.. My fiancé wanted to eat pizza so we said lets try this place, with our expectations are slightly low.. The restaurant decoration and menu presentation is awful, and gives you the feeling that you...

Pizzas were very good, and four pages of selections. We didn't try the pasta so cannot comment on that. Great patio as well. Free and quite fast wifi a plus.

My wife and I first visited Ristorante Rodrigo when we stopped for a drink on the way back to our hotel after a lakeside stroll. We were so impressed by the easy-going but professional service we received that we decided to return for dinner that evening. The meal did not disappoint and was punctuated by pleasant conversation with the waiter,... More

Visited Rodrigo's twice whilst staying at Lake Como. Very friendly place with plenty of choice. My son ordered a pizza and they took him to the kitchen to show him it being made. Good value and a lovely place to sit and enjoy a few after dinner drinks overlooking the Lake.

Excellent restaurant, took us at very busy time and managed to get alfresco table. Food took long to arrive, but was well worth the wait. Read the back of the menu to find some interesting facts about the history of the place. The original restaurant was one of the most famous restaurants on the lake and the main restaurant room...
