Description: Typical restaurant with a modern twist. Between the quietness of centuries trees, a large car park and terrace for al fresco dining, few meters from the main beach of the area, with rustic and welcoming style is the right place where to stop for an exceptional gastronomic experience. All home made pasta, fresh lake fish and meat cooked on local wood charcoal cooked on sight. Large homemade dessert list.

We were driving around Lake Como and looking for a place to eat lunch. We saw a few places but there was no place to park. Finally we saw this place and plenty of parking. We went in and immediately felt welcome. This 120 year old restaurant is now in the 6th generation of the family. The bruschetta was very unique and tasty. The owner recommended a nice red wine (King Arthur pavia) which we loved. We had the fresh fish (caught this morning in Lake Como) and 3 pasta dishes before having the wonderful desserts and espresso. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and highly recommend it if you are in the area.

This restaurant was amazing. The owner speaks English and everyone was incredibly friendly. I would most definitely return to this quaint eatery. The pasta was phenomenal. The fish was fresh. The experience was unforgettable. Come eat here.

Me and my family visited this restaurant this evening and really enjoyed it. All of the food was lovely and tasted really fresh. The staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. We also got a free glass of prosecco when we got there!! A must try if you’re in Lake Como.

We loved this place so much that we came twice during our stay.

The staff were really friendly and the owner took the time to talk to everyone. The chef also came out to speak with us both nights.

The food was stunning. Of note were the smoked lake fish and cheese with roasted veg to start and then gnocchi and mixed grill followed by the tiramisu. The recommended wine was also good.

They have indoor and outdoor seating with space to park.

Would recommend not missing and booking ahead.

I'm only sorry it took so long to review! Thank you.
