We booked this restaurant in advance - & highly recommend you do! As it is in demand, and for good reason!

The food is excellent! WOW!
The wine, equally as good - and with choices for all budgets.

Our table was divine - lovely mini-sofa each to sit on, with plump cushions, next to a window, with great views of the restaurant's garden, and onto the Lake as well.

For a formal restaurant, it has a great relaxed feel and vibe, which we loved.

Service was faultless - great attention to detail, and whats lovely, is that your courses aren't rushed, and you can eat and digest your food with comfort, without feeling rushed by the kitchen.

Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough!

Pretty sure this place had a different name last time I was here but nevertheless, the meal was as good as I remembered it. Frankly, we chose this because we were only in Como for 2 days and this was walking distance from the hotel. Having said that, you would be hard pressed to find many places this good in the area - I’ve been coming here for years. Small plates / tapas type of meal is the route we went and sort of “grazed” our way through the meal while sampling various wines. Andrea and Lorenzo have set out to make their mark in a competitive gastro environment and they have succeeded. Very nice place. Outdoor seating is a must - the view compliments the food and vice versa.

Think small portions, multiple courses, and inventive food. Everything was delicious, don’t get me wrong. This is a newly revamped place, a lot of the locals don’t know it had a new name. The restaurant has a lovely outdoor area, but there are tons of mosquitoes. The food and the wine were great. The location isn’t on the lake though, it’s across from the Sheraton Lake Como.

We were seated under a beautiful tree with lights all around us in the tree & on the ground. The ambience was perfect for a wonderful meal. The servers were very knowledgeable & suggested a perfect wine pairing from Lombardi with our meal. The chef’s appetizers were imaginative, pretty, & tasted amazing; especially the smoked potato purée with beef sauce drizzle. Next, we had the scallops with onion sauce & bacon powder which were cooked to perfection & featured a wonderful blend of flavors. We each had a pasta dish which were the ravioli like lasagna & the risotto with saffron. Each pasta dish were cooked al dente & were very flavorful & true to the description. Lastly, we had the Piedmont beef filet with red wine reduction/beef sauce which was cooked to perfection. In summation, this was truly one of the finest dining we’ve experienced anywhere in the world regardless of price/location.
