Amezing place with lovely view when the sky will allow so must see. Good food but have to see wasnt pleased after receiving the starters as we did ask how big they were and we would have expected a professional advise in a sense that starters are big so remember before ordering, easily share plates. Also the Pizzoccheri were pretty... More

Lunch with friends. Delicious, well-prepared, and authentic regional dishes (Valtellina). I had "sciat" (small fried cheese balls), pizzoccheri (buckwheat tagliatelle) alla Valtellina, and then osso buco for the main course. There were so many of my favorite dishes that it was hard to choose. The service was friendly and professional. The restaurant itself is comfortable, bright and airy. A pretty... More

With a great view on Lake Como, this restaurant is already a must visit option in the area. Food is good: the Risotto with Persico lake fish is very tasty, Pizziccheri are a regional dish with great flavor. The Polenta Uncia was too greasy, and the deer steak was a bit flavorless: maybe I ate a regular beef steak instead!

Food and service are graet too. Local food topically from Valtellina are well presented and serverd. Prices are aggressive, but quality it's high. Wide parking lot and handicaps facilities are available. This place is recommended for groups and couples and...marriage ;-)

Nice view and traditional food, even if during the weekend is full of citizens from Milan region. The menu offers a wide range of polenta dishes, and probably autumn and winter are the best season to enjoy it.

The restaurant is in the italian pre alps just over looking the town of Bellagio. Coming from Milan is 45 km and takes you around 1 hour by car. The view from there in particular in hot summer nights is fantastic. The suggestion is to eat several plates of Polenta the tipical corn dish with mushrooms or cheese or pork... More
