Enjoyed great wine and pasta with white truffles for lunch at this cute restaurant. Service and food were first rate. I enjoyed some wild boar with beans along with agnollotti and white truffles. We brought our own wines with us and the service was great!

This is exactly what I envisioned when imagining the perfect Italian dining experience. I won't repeat all the rave reviews contributed by others, but just want to note that (a) the pasta was perfectly al dente, and (b) they shave truffles onto your meal at the table. That's right, truffles. if you can even get that in the U.S., it... More

I was invited by real good friends as they wanted me to test the restaurant and this was a real surprise: nothing appears to from the outside, there is a corridor to access the dining room and then starts the magic: the best carpaccio I ever ate, a delicious "vitello al tartuffo" and a superb red wine from Valtellina -...

In Cernobbio, a little out of the way for most people visiting the Lake Como region but if you're staying anywhere near Cernobbio this is the spot to have at least one of your dinners. Excellent appetizers and pasta dishes.

This is a well regarded restaurant located very close to the boat launch piazza in Cernobbio. It does not offer direct views of Lake Como but is in a pleasant, accessible locale. It has both inside and outside tables and the interior of the restaurant is filled with interesting photographs and memorabilia of the area. The proprietor can be a... More

Trattoria del Vapore was one of our favorite meals in Italy. Our hotel concierge recommended two places for dinner in Cernobbia - Harry's Bar - no thanks and Trattoria del Vapore. It's a charming small restaurant just off the lake. The service was excellent and the food even better. I had a Veal Chop Milanese, so tender and flavorful, as... More

Food was good but we left hungry with an appetizer and pasta for €60 per couple. I've eaten better for less in Europe and would likely not return to this restaurant

This appears to be a family owned restaurant with very good food in a nice building. Tables were available both inside and outside. The veal was excellent but most items on the menu are a bit pricey.
