“Delicious Food and Romantic Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

A great dinner for a foodie. Excellent service! They prepared the lavarello of the lake nine different ways for an app, and we had an amazing cheese risotto with black truffles! It was also surprisingly reasonable considering the presentation and food!

“Fantastic meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

After a beautiful walk through villa Menzi from Bellagio (the all day ticket lets you leave for lunch then re-enter to walk back to the town), we dined at this wonderful restaurant. We were on the terrace with great views of local boats and glimpses of the lake. Dishes were inventive and varied and very well executed. Our planned light lunch turned into 3 courses. Staff were well informed and engaging.

“Terrible service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We had a reservation but had to wait 15 minutes after being seated at our table to get some attention from the waiters. You can't fault the food, but the atmosphere could have been better. If I were to go again I think I would have asked to be seated outside.

We had the tasting menu, and you are allowed to swap one dish.

“Best meal in Lake Como by FAR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We stumbled upon this restaurant accidentally and loved it. We were with friends from Singapore, Hong Kong, Italy, Sweden and the US and everyone felt the same. The owner was charming and I hope to make it back one day...

“Missed the plot tonight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

After reading the good reviews on TripAdvisor we were keen to try this restaurant and it started well with a complimentary glass of Prosecco. However after that things deteriorated.
We told the waiter we would like to order the degustation menu for two but asked him to explain what the second of the four courses was. It was a type of pasta and we agreed that was fine and confirmed we would like to order the degustation menu.

We thought it odd to be served the second course first and when that was finished our bread basket, cutlery and bread plates including an unfinished bread roll were removed. We asked when we would be getting the first corse of Zucchini flowers. Confusion reigned and the original waiter was summoned. He said he had not understood us.

After all this we just ordered two mains, a dessert, more wine and coffee. It was clear that the front of house staff were too busy with the groups on the outside terrace and it would have been much wiser if they had not accepted our booking. The mains of pork and veal were very nicely cooked and presented well but there seemed to be insufficient waiters to look after guests inside the restaurant. A disappointing experience when spending this level of money and expecting the service to match TripAdvisors reviews.
