If you like cool, spacious Italian charm - no fuss - immaculately clean - quality food served as quick as is possible whilst still being fresh and delicious - this is the place for you.
A 5 min walk from Lake Como at most - and just far enough out of the busiest spots to keep it exclusive to those who search out those hidden special places.
Iv'e stayed here twice now - and this is where I will be heading for on my next visit to Como.

We were staying in Varenna on Lake Como. In all our travels over the years, we have learnt to never go to the touristy restaurants. We ask the locals, that is three or four of them, where do they go to eat for real casalinga Italian cuisine and that is where we go. Ristorante al Orrido is not a fancy looking restaurant and it does remind me of my old Italian grandmother's home as does the food.Being of Italian background, I have eaten pasta all my life. The pasta with ragu and the pasta carbonara was one of the best of my life. We ate in Varenna and in Bellagio. Ristorante al Orrido is the real thing, if you want authentic casalinga Italian cuisine. The other dishes that were coming out of the kitchen looked absolutely beautiful. Good quantities for a great price. Vanda the owner was warm and welcoming. Don't be put off by her mother, the older lady, she is just very quiet and keeps to herself. Remember, this is not a pretty restaurant but very comfortable. Just great food at a great price. A pleasant change from Bellagio and Varenna.

We were recommended to this restaurant by a trusted friend who lived locally. We are so glad that he did! This unassuming but typically Italian albergo is popular with the locals and for good reason. The pasta is amazing! Fresh, home-made and perfectly cooked. We allowed our host, Wanda, to choose for us and we were not disappointed. For main course, I had Veal Milanese which was tender and fried in butter rather than oil. The portion size was generous and nearly defeated my sizeable appetite. Local wines complimented the meal and the whole experience was excellent value for money.

We ended up here quite by accident- terrible weather and detours and a wrong turn landed us in this sweet, little town and we ended up staying 4 nights! We hated to go! The breakfast was so delightful (they serve Nutella!) with endless lattes. The staff was wonderful and the hotel was very clean and quaint. Not fussy and touristy, just right for us. A great value and great food! The owner even packed us a great picnic lunch the day we left!
