Description: Overlooking the magnificent Lake Como, the “Orangerie” restaurant offers a broad spectrum of popular and classic creations using the freshest products, most coming from the area, and prepared with particular focus on local traditions: pasta, bread, cakes and desserts are daily home-made. The Restaurant offers a Gourmet menu which is served only for dinner, together with refined and new tasting menus. The outdoor terrace with a spectacular view on Lake Como is open between May and September for your “al fresco” meals.

one thing is sure the place is stunning , it s beauty in a mid summer night was simply perfect , the terrace overlooking the lake is not to be missed . well then comes food or better say bread ,bread and again bread for 45 minutes while drinking a glass of extremely overpriced rose. Yes we also got some oil basilic flavoured ( we never get normal oil even if we did ask for it ..) and a special amuse bouche made of one cherry tomato and some flavorless ricotta. Then again bread , Pasta better to forget about , my wife did eat just one fifth , my daughter was so disappointed she proposed me to get a pizza outside afterwards. The fish ,cooked in salt was nice , but out of the 800 grams we have been charged for we simply get maybe 100 grams for the two of us .
Starters so anonimously and overpriced , with even ingredients not even remarkable ...well really a poor dinner , kitchen and service unfortunately not in line with the expectations and the place , Prices outrageously absurd on anything wine included ...a wonderful place , great location , but not a restaurant to recommend ...a missed occasion to put the lake of Como on
the map of what could be called gastronomy.....

The breakfasts were spectacular on the terrace overlooking the lake. The quality of the buffet was amongst the best I've encountered.

The service was excellent whatever the time of day.

The dinners were quite expensive and of only average quality. The entrees were tasty and inspired but the primi piatti and secondo piatti were (particularly considering their price) rarely overly noteworthy.

How a nice place like Castadiva Resort can serve such mediocre food ? The place was empty... Still trying to find the right personnel and the rght management. They are very far from what they should be....
