Ate there 2 nights in a row because we were staying at the hotel. Great fresh fish from the Adriatic and super service also nice wine and... Grappa collection. View from the terrace is amazing and worth every penny. The place is expensive but you get what you pay for.

Well we decided to have lunch and check out the spa. Let me start of by saying the spa is probably the best spa ever and trust be I have been to the best. They have stuff you will never find any where else. The restaurant while small is outside overlooking the lake. The food was great and like always we ordered everything. It's always funny to read others thoughts but I consider myself a foodie so the perfect day is rent a boat drive their for lunch and make sure to go to the spa. While my current hotel D'estes is awesome this one looked incredible as well.

3.5 stars. If you're staying at the resort and want a formal dining experience, you likely won't be disappointed with the restaurant. Food is good to very good, though quite expensive. Service is excellent. Not worth a special trip from elsewhere on the lake, I don't think.

Buffet Breakfast is sumptuous & tasty. We had Ravioli & fish for dinner which was superb. For Lunch Chef cooked a 4 course meal starting with Ricetta Pappa al Pomodoro-(tomatoes, onions good extra virgin oil, garlic, fresh basil & old bread) a wholesome typical Italian dish cooked in most homes,though simple very tasty , followed by Spagetti ala Carbonara- Spagetti pasta with Pecorini & Parmesan cheese with lots of crushed black pepper, eggs & pancetta(belly of pork) & the main course was a T Bone Steak cooked to perfection served with new potatoes which were crispm on the outside & soft on the inside. For dessert we had the classic Tiramisu. This meal was the highlight as the Chef gave us a cooking demonstration of this 4 course menu.

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.....
