Located in a great spot on the Lake of Como, this place offers good food, nicely prepared and well served. Creative dishes add to the beauty of the place. I was there on a rainy and cold day but, nevertheless, we went for a walk in the area and enjoyed lot of great views. The place has good potential and the food is very well prepared. Worth taking a quick ride from Como

We accidentally found this restaurant and were taken by surprise not just by the perfect location (directly at the water with sun until the evening) but formost by the enthusiasm and hospitality of its owner. After a glass of wine in the afternoon we came back in the evening for dinner. The food was very good (we had the 6 course menu) and the service easily found the balance between formal and informal. It's a bit far (we live in the Netherlands) but I'd love to go back some day!

The restaurant is located at lake Como and has a spectacular view. The staff is friendly but food was average. Maybe because we had a fixed menu since we visited the restaurant with a group but for sure the price we paid for the quality of food was too high.

We visited Momi this past September during a trip of a lifetime put together by a good friend. The A group of 13 arrived at the restaurant via a short boat ride from Torno, courtesy of Reiner Remy who owns a small wine "cave" just next to our rented villa. We had a table to ourselves just off the dock where the ferry would normally land. Apparently Momi himself had the dock put in so that the ferry would stop at the village of Blevio. Fact or urban myth?

The table setting was perfect and the view across Lake Como to Villa d'Este was incredible. We had an incredible view of fireworks taking place across the lake.

Service was as good as one would want. Our main waiter had perfect command of english language and was able to better some of our group in comedic wit!

The food was excellent. Due to the group size we hd a preset menu with several courses - a starter, pasta, main, desert. My only comment would be that the main option of fish was seafood (octopus, etc) and not the expected fish which threw some of the children off - so I enjoyed several servings of "fish". We enjoyed a copious flow of wine and finished off with grappa and limoncello at desert. Perhaps that is why I don't remember details of the food itself, other than it was excellent! Momi and our waiter joined in with the group in singing a variety of songs - Italian and Irish - to close out the evening.

Food and service were first rate - to top it off the bill was easily 50% less than I expected. I suppose I'm used to the dining costs - especially wine costs - of home in Canada. Finally, to my amazement, and apparently because we needed several taxis which would have taken considerable time to show up, Momi and his staff drove us back to our villa!

Located in Blevio, only a few kms from Como and much easier to access than better-known places such as Bellagio - off the main road down a narrow road, but so are many of the lake restaurants. The restaurant is right on the lake and can also be accessed by ferry (the ferry station is at Momi's) - tho the ferry stops here only infrequently.
Meals are relatively simple, but the whole menu is good and the staff (particularly Momi himself) are very friendly and helpful.
