Our friends were staying in Sala Comacina and we joined them one evening for dinner. They took us to this restaurant. The weather was not good and it had been pouring with rain so we ate inside and could not really take advantage of the views across the lake. The restaurant was very cosy and warm though and we were made very welcome.

The menu is not large and we decided to share starters and order individual main courses. Without exception the starters were great especially the duck with apples. Our main courses were fine except we found the fish a bit bland. We had a couple of bottles of the house white wine which was perfectly acceptable. With no room for dessert we ended with coffee.

The service was friendly and we thought the place value for money at 150 euros for the four of us. This included the wine and some beers before the dinner. Our friends said they would be going back there again before the end of their holiday.

Family service, very friendly, endearingly amateurish at times. Great views from the balcony, similar to those from La Tirlindana, but a higher vantage point. Pretty good menu, but we did not try visually very appealing fowl (saw it at the next table). Excellent duck with apples and oranges for an appetizer, gnocchi or tagliatini for primi, ok beef filet for the main; fish from the lake only ok, fish fried in butter much better; desserts are good, cheese selection is excellent.

We had a lovely lunch here, sitting outside on the terrace with a wonderful view of the Comacina Island. The restaurant is right on the main road, has a private car park, but sitting on the terrace you don't hear any noise. The food was very good, we recommend the brutti e buoni, delicious home made gnocchi with mushrooms. The lovely table covers and service were first class, in what seemed to be a husband and wife team running the place. Well worth a visit. Would definitely return.

So glad we stumbled across this restaurant and were able to get a reservation on the terrace. The fried perch with lemon wedges and salad was divine. The apple sorbet with calvados for dessert was a major hit too! Great experience.

This is a great restaurant with mostly local Italian diners - always a good sign. Lovely views of the lake and Isla Comacina. The food is traditional and the service old fashioned and friendly. We had a fabulous pasta dish with a rabbit ragu for primi piatto followed by lake fish (trout) with an olive crust - extremely tasty and succulent. It was very well priced and we will be going again while we are staying in Colonno for two weeks.
