We were unfortunate enough to visit this delightful,restaurant in a terrible storm which meant that we could not dine outside in the picturesque setting. We still managed to have a window table and it didn't spoil our evening at all. We had a delicious pasta and a wonderful porcini risotto and the service was delightful

Lucky accident for us - another Crotto could not accept our reservation - so we called Crotto dei Platani. LUCKY US!!!!!!!! The perfect Italian Summer Holiday Spot. This is what we are dreaming of, this is what we want to tell our friends of. Right on the lake of Como - perfect, friendly and charming SERVICE, excellent food, outstanding view, Italian Cordiality..

We decided the same night to come back and reserved for Sunday lunch again.
Arriving with a little boat, we felt like prince and princess.
The sun was shining, the Lake of Come in front, wonderful white wine, some pasta with seafood -

WHAT ELSE.... would be the question.

Perfect ITALIAN SUMMER DREAM..
Don!t miss it.

Good sign- on Sunday well booked by many italians... good reference..
Make your reservation early.
Dont forget a jacket for evening reservations...

Very warm hospitality and all recommendations of the waiter were excellent. Fish tartar, fresh ravioli and home made tiramisu - a must! Restaurant is located near the water with a fantastic view.

This is a great find and worth a visit in Como. The food and service are very nice and the views overlooking the lake are superb as well. The parking is a little tricky but there are places to park, just be careful on the busy road. The interior has a nice buzzy trattoria feeling whilst also feeling a bit more high end, but the prices are very reasonable and the food is great.

Our group of eight were served with aplomb. The servers were exacting in their knowledge of the dishes, recommending only the best for the day. Attention to detail was exacting, servers attended us with proper etiquette that is lacking in so many establishments. It was refreshing and delightful.
Food offerings were focused on locally sourced produce. The fish from the lake was enjoyed by a fellow guest. The pasta I thoroughly enjoyed was prepared to perfection. I highly recommend this place as a must stop when in the Lake Como area.
