Exquisite local fish, expertly served. Lovely house wine and very generous portions. All served under the best view you could get over Lake Como. The restaurant has free parking and a wide ranging menu in several languages. We paid about €60 for two courses each plus wine for two. A hidden gem. Go there before everyone discovers how good it...

This place was literally a stab in the dark for us, we were solely relying on trip advisor. Since we had already had a so-so experience with the #1 restaurant in Torno we decided to give this place, the #2 in Torno, a try. This restaurant was leaps and bounds over any other dining experience during our entire Lake Como... More

When we arrived in Torno, we were a bit hesitant to try the local restaurants due to our poor Italian speaking. The restaurant worked very patiently with us and provided us an amazing dining experience. It was easily the top ten meals I've had in my life, and the staff was very pleasant. We were very lucky to be eating... More

We enjoyed our meal here so much that we returned for another meal. Most tables have a fantastic lake view so it is magical in the evening. We enjoyed the food, well-prepared and in good quantity. There was an impressive awareness of allergies on the menu and they catered well for my gluten-free diet, without advance notice. Many thanks.

The house wine was OK and moderately priced. Good food and the service also. We enjoyed simplicity and homelyness.

The food was good. Nothing special but good enough. But the 2 guys serving us were so inattentive and lackluster that we wondered if they were being forced to work to pay off a debt. We had to ask for most things twice, including the check. And even went in search of someone to print out a bill as the... More

Great waterfront restaurant! Good service! Can eat indoors or out. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Was a lady there that spoke English & was most helpful.

I was there with some friends visiting from abroad. The view is absolutely stunning and worth the experience. With this heat wave we did not eat much, but the dishes based on the fish from the lake were really, really good. Good service too, despite they had just finished a wedding and looked quite tired.

a sad experience! Driving down a steep driveway to this hotel/restaurant we were filled with pleasant anticipation. Magnificent views of lake Como. But that's where the pleasure ended. An airless dining room with big windows overlooking the lake was marred further by a sullen waiter who didn't know the meaning of service. We then had the house specialities: tasteless gnocchi...
