This restaurant offers a great variety of local/regional dishes. The staff is very helpful and offers some good suggestions (food & wine). The quality is good and there's actually nothing to complain about. Just go and see for yourself. It's really satisfying !

We stayed at Casa Santa Stefano for two nights and had booked to eat at Trattoria del Glicine on the first night as it was only a short walk from the hotel. The food was great and the Sommelier was extremely helpful and guided us in choosing a good bottle of wine. Despite previous visitors' comments about unfriendly staff nothing... More

The evening started with some expectations: I like the style of restaurant.....charming and "old fashion".....then they started to serve the food which was simply nothing special. To the staff I'd like to...guys, a smile sometimes helps..... There are definitely better places!

Had a wonderful meal in this trattoria, which is visited mainly by locals and a few tourists. We were there on a Thursday night and the place was packed, so do book ahead. Hospitality with a smile and food deliciously prepared. We had the baby chicken and the pork shank, both of which were meltingly good. Extensive wine list and... More

We were staying at a fancy hotel in Cernobbio and wanted to eat somewhere less rarified so chose this from tripadvisor reports. No regrets. We had antipasti, primi, and secondi, each better than the last. I had pickled Guineafowl, pasta with bottarga, and swordfish with salmariglio. Excellent wine selection too. And all very reasonably priced

I Glicine is a small, charming restaurant up a narrow, winding road about 10 minutes from the lake in Cernobbio. There's no sidewalk so it's impossible to walk. It was recommended by a couple of locals as well as by our concierge at Villa d'Este. There is a lovely wisteria-covered terrace overlooking the lake. The complimentary starter was a scrumptious...

Unfortunately, we never actually got to eat at this restaurant. Having read reviews on tripadvisor it sounded great. However, we went last night and despite there being many empty tables we were turned away. This was apparently because we hadn't booked but the rude, stuck up front of house staff were more interested in turning down business than serving customers.... More

I had to organize a business dinner and I selected this restaurant through TA. Comments found on TA fit exactly with the expectations. Food quality superlative (we had "parmigiana" and "frittura"), wine selection very accurate and efficient and kind staff. Typical restaurant managed by a family. One remark only: it is not a budget restaurant but it worth a trip... More
