“Wow..what view”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

This has to be the best Retaurant with superb views of Lake Como.
And the food and service and wines typically Northern Italys finest. With a star studded list of diners this is not to be missed if you are in the area. And do not worry about your vehicle....they park it for you.

“Unique”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

This is one of the few restaurants which are a destination by itself. Not that is a favorite of George Clooney but is one of mine.
They are numbered spots were you can get the view and atmosphere of this family restaurant.
Top of notch Italian kitchen and good service on top of the lake.
Get a table at the rail at you will remember the experience forever.

“Magnificent view”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

In case you want to have nice & modern italian food this restaurant is what you need. Always try to book well in advance and accept only the first row sitting. If you are lucky besides the excellent food, local wine and ambiance you will enjoy the extraordinary view over the Lake and the Como city

“Worth the Visit”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

We made our reservation well in advance. We had a fabulous day on Lake Como and finished it with dinner in this setting. Views are spectacular, especially as the sun sets. We had a 730pm reservation and were one of the first guests to arrive. We had reserved a table by the railing so we could enjoy the view. You can sit outside on the lower level but we chose to sit by the railing on the upper level. Glad we chose upper level as it got cooler as the evening progressed and upstairs offered a bit more shelter. Food was very good. Portions were good size. Service was good. Worth a visit for a special night! Hope to go back one day.

We celebrated my wife's birthday overlooking lake como in this stunning restaurant. Excellent menu and wine list and the waiter was friendly and courteous. Great food with one of the best views in Como.
