This is one of the best local Italian cuisines we had during our family vacation in Italy in Aug. 2017. We found this restaurant from TripAdvisor and a lot of good reviews, so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant location is a little difficult to find and the road is pretty rough and easily missed. But it all worth it! The food was so delicious and the set up was so beautiful to over look the mountain and lake Como. We were sitting in outside and at the end of our dinner, there were terrible storm going through the area (later we found out they haven't had such a bed storm for years), and took the power out. Luckily we were done with our dinner, however there was another couple (from France) were still having dinner and they have to move inside the room. What an experience and the host and chef were really nice! We waited until the storm passed after about 45 min. Great restaurant and highly recommend to anyone happen to be in the area!

We visited on a Wednesday evening for a family meal. Unfortunately when we arrived we realised it was closed. This wasn't available information on the website

La Baita (mountain hut) is a long-established family operation which sticks to the basics and executes them flawlessly. Situated high on a hill overlooking Lake Como, it offers a splendid panorama over the lake, and a delightful quiet terrace from which to take it all in. There special dishes change daily, with everything home made from scratch. Ribs, veal, beef, rabbit, homemade pasta, polenta, and an antipasti which seems to go on and on.... Everything we have tried is of extremely high quality, and the service is perfection, since the owners are on-hand at all times from our experience. The drive is slightly challenging, up a long winding single lane track above the golf course, but I guarantee you will find the experience to be well worth the drive.
Very highly recommended.

This restaurant is off the beaten track so you wouldn't know it's there. The view of the lake was great. We had the homemade ravioli to start and then the local pork ribs and the beef with mushrooms both with the local polenta. Everything was absolutely delicious. This was the best meal of our 12 day tour of Italy. The staff are so helpful and the bill was unbelievably reasonable. Want to go back next year.

We had a super evening at this very friendly restaurant. After a rather scary (for me as a passenger!) drive up to it, the mountain scenery was worth the effort, with a gorgeous view down to Lake Como. The staff were very helpful and squeezed us in, without a reservation. The food was tasty, traditional fare-perhaps the cheesy polenta,, which seemed to be served with all the secondi piatti, was a little stodgy but still delicious. Quite resonably priced too. Most enjoyable.
