I have travelled a fair amount in my short life and this stands up as being one of the best restaurants I have ever been to anywhere. EVER
Wonderful mountain location just 3 minute drive up form lake Como, always peaceful and relaxing.
Authentic, beautiful Italian food, great wine and even better service.
This is a bit of real Italy and as someone who has lived around Italy for 10 years I would hope I have a reasonably good idea.
Enjoy Enjoy!

Very nice and cozy restaurant!!! They treated us like royalty, and they even kept us from ordering the expensive reds by offering us the local wines which were outstanding!! Food was real country italian, like made by grandma! We had an italian family with us who loved the food as much as we did!! Would not miss it if in the Como area.

We were recommended La Griglia by a local as a porcini specialist during the height the season. The food was very good, the owner extremely hospitable and the prices fair. €60 for three with two courses plus a €30 wine. It had one of the best wine lists we had seen and the owner selected an excellent local wine when told of our interest. It is well worth braving the winding road to find.

We had been recommended this restaurant for its good value food. It is situated about 3km up the hill from central Argengo. Try the pocinni polenta and veal casserole - fab!

Why pay for cooking classes in Bellagio, when just across the lake at Locanda Sant'Anna Restaurant is waiting for you to have the best cooking experience ever. A party of 4 made a reservation. We had one of the dining rooms to ourselves and the owner's (brother and sister) Lino and Bruna accomodated us. First we got a tour and the history of the restaurant by Lino while Bruna was getting prepared for us to sit down and make ourselves at home. Bruna is the chef, a great chef I may add. She prepared in front of us while we sat comfortably drinking the chosen wine by Lino, a Sommelier. He instructed us on wine, while Bruna instructed us on every detail of the meal. Questions were easily answered as both spoke excellent english and communicated very well. She wants the meal to be a meal that when you leave you can stop by the grocery and pick up the ingredients and go home and make it. She succeeded, in my opinion. Don't forget your camera as the building and little area, complete with it's own church, are worth the photos. I would recommend a video camera with a tripod to get the whole experience. BTW: 1/2 the cost of Bellagio cooking experiences. We left very full. It took about 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Most enjoyable thing we did in our two months in Menaggio. Prior to leaving we will be going back for a dinner or lunch. I believe they are closed on Thursdays to the public for their cooking classes. For dining, it has a great outdoor seating area, too.
