We cycled from Como to Swiss side and had a rest and coffee break. Very helpful staff who gave us map and road indications.

Staid there during 4 weeks while on a nearby assignment with the Swiss Armed Forces. No need to loose a lot of words on the menu, especially the pasta is simply "out of this world!" Basic, yet spacious and clean rooms and needless to say, the wine list too is outstanding. Whether you are off for a culinary experience, traveling... More

This is a modern restaurant in a village close to Chiasso. The interior is well decorated and spacious - tables well apart although no view really. We have been a few times over a number of years and it is notable how they keep the offer bang up to date. It has changed totally to be modern. We go for... More

I honestly don't know, after having visited most 2-3 stars in the nearby Italy, how did the Michelin guys came to give stars to this place. It has nothing to do with stars quality. Decor is quite average, cellar is quite average, and food is VERY average or below. Save money and go to the first Trattoria you find after... More

One of the few Michelin restaurants in the region. Decor is quite dissapointing, it felt a little like an old age home. Service isnt as sharp as other Michelins, though they are friendly. Probably my biggest criticism are the prices which are easily 30-40 Euros more expensive then other 1 star Michelin restaurant menu options. Why do Swiss establishments feel... More

Birthday party in the private room, having dinner surrounded by hundreds of bottles of wine giving you this amazing atmosphere where you can enjoy even more the fantastic plates that the chef prepares with love to detail and embraces traditional cuisine with a touch of personal flavours. Highly recommended.

We were with a local friend in Lake Como when he suggested we venture to Switzerland for lunch. Always up for an adventure - off we went. What a treat! They knew our friend so we were treated to great service, wonderful food and a fantastic wine cellar that included a post lunch tour. As I watched the food coming... More

Now, THAT is a restaurant! a) The "Conca Bella Restaurant" part is a complete surprising experience, both for your taste and for your eyes. b) Opt for the (new) "Bistrot Conca" area if you prefer a more informal money-saving meal (in that case just go for "Sedanini Panna & Salsiccia", they are so delicious!)
