This is our second time to Lake Como and on our first visit three years ago, we received the full experience, tasting and explanation of the production process. This time we just wanted to purchase a bottle. Friendly owner and nothing to complain about.

Whenever you find yourself on the western shores of Lake Como in Italy... (and you consider yourself a "FOODIE"), don't miss out on an excellent chance to purchase some bottles or a large metal can of the finest extra virgin olive oil of Northern Italy....More

Oleficio Vanini Osvaldo offers delicious Olive Oil. It is the perfect souvenir from a trip to Lake Como. Visiting this site, however, is not an event or a sight. It is simply a place to purchase their delicious Olive Oil. Don't expect a tasting room...More

Wonderful place & wonderful oil! I come there with my family last summer and we found all we need: beauty, kindness & cheapness! We took only 11 eur for bottle and people have inside them the sun of Italy. Excellent! Good place, we'll came back!

We have been buying oil in Lenno for years. This time they were very unfriendly and charged us 9 euro for .25 liter. The Lenno Dino's market had the exact same bottle for 6.2 euro.

What else you need to know? You come here for the oil, not for the shop, and Osvaldo Vanini produces a fantastic olive oil. Try it, it'll be one of the best you've ever tryied if not the best.

Vanini Osvaldo produces one of the best olive oil I've tasted so far. Instead of buying the oil from the nearby Sigma Cetti supermarket, go to this factory store instead (right behind the supermarket). Better prices (0,75l/12€, 0,5l/9€, 0,25l/5,5€) compared to supermarket and more sizes...More

We went to visit the infamous olive oil producer in Como. Made a special effort to drive to Lenno. Found the place up a small side road - there was a gardener outside and someone selling pegs who we thought worked there! They were the...More
