We were staying at the Grand Hotel Imperiale and this is one of two restaurants that belongs to the hotel. The other restaurant was nothing special. The Imperialino, however, was exceptional. I had different types of local lake fish for each course, each prepared in a unique way with an eye towards presentation. The smoked trout and perch were particularly noteworthy. The staff was very attentive and the prices were quite reasonable. Also the location is perfect: right on the bank of Lake Como. If it is breezy, however, don't sit outside on the terrace. The wind kept knocking things over and most of the guests moved indoors eventually. But this was one of the best meals during this particular trip.

The quality of the food and service in the Ristorante Imperialino was not in the same league as the last time we stayed at the hotel (on previous visits we have enjoyed wonderful meals in this restaurant). On this occassion the food was cold and of very poor quality, for much less money there are much better restaurants nearby. Don’t be fooled by the fabulous location, until they get their act together the view is all you will get.

What more can you ask for, it is pricey, but worth it as a splash out. We were in town for three days, went here the first night and got greeted by the restaurant staff for the next three days where ever we went. They were really attentive, the food was well presented and tasted great, to me was a little bit OTT on the price. The view was nearly there, you could see the lake but tables outside would make it. If you want to impress this is the place, if you want authentic and local, walk up the hill

Beautiful view of the lake, wonderful haute cuisine that was exquisitely presented, attentive staff... it was just divine. Presented with a glass of Prosecco when we sat down and received tiny little beautiful sweets when we received the bill. Add to that an interesting "amuse bouche", delicious menu choices and a glorious evening lake view as you eat and you have the perfect evening!

This restaurant was a god send. The restaruant in our hotel was very expensive so we dashed acrossed to this eatery most evenings. The menu was varied and very reasonable priced, alcohol too. Good atmosphere too. Well worth a visit.
