Tourist trap, they overcharge and serve small portions that come out of the microwave, at least my lasagne did and it was less then an inch thick and still cold in the centre. 15€ Was a ripoff and that didn't include the wine. We ate, paid ,,,,,and when to the Mc Donnalds across the square.
The service was good but hey, all they had to do was bring the plate......

But that's just the beginning, because the food is delicious and the service extremely kind. In this beautiful setting, overlooking the beautiful Lake Como, you can have local fresh water fish (I had a fantastic Risotto al persico, a local perch) and great meat (a "Milanese" there is not a standard Milanese, the traditional breaded Wienerschnitzel, but a huge steak on the bone). All the rest is great, from spaghetti to desserts. A really lovely place. Will go again!

Dining outside with a beautiful view of Lago di Como was a great experience. The food here could have well been served decades ago. It had a very authentic, traditional feel to it which has been lost in this modern world. I had the Costoletta di Vitello (Milanese veal chop) which was excellent. The fish of the day looked spectacular. We also tried the vegetable soup, pasta with clams and pasta with arugula and cacioricotta. Everything was great.

The restaurant is on Piazza Cavour, sharing space with the Hotel Metropole & Suisse, and has a lovely view of the lake. The staff was quick and accommodating for our party of 8, setting up a whole new table top for us and taking care to make sure it was level. Our waiter, Arthur, was friendly and funny and quickly addressed all of our requests. We ate dinner there on our first night and lunch before we left. We all enjoyed our meals and, by the 7th day of our trip, were happy to see a variety of foods beyond pasta and pizza! One of the girls was celebrating her 18th birthday at lunch and they went completely out of their way to make it special. They had the whole restaurant sing, (in several languages!) they wrote her name on the plate with her dessert and completed it with a candle. Definitely a memorable birthday lunch!

Stopped by here late evening and managed to get in before they closed. Waiting staff were friendly and accommodating, and overall service was very good. Made us feel most welcome even though we were the last ones in the place come eleven o'clock.
