This place is nice inside, has a trendy urban vibe about it. Sit down area is a terrace surrounded by apartment dwellers. It is hidden away from views & menu is limited to cold/small plates. It seemed like a nice change to go here & still glad we did. We noticed that it was warm & humid inside where we... More

We are so thrilled we came across this place during our honeymoon! The owner Joost is so friendly and helpful. We had the wine samplers and the cheese & charcuterie board for two. Everything was delicious and we can't wait to come back!

Service was fantastic, chose a glass of red with the mixed board and it was amazing, 6 different local cheeses and the same... More

What a gem of a place the Cantina Follie is. Nestled up the hill between the Grand Tremezzo and Hotel Bazzoni, this restaurant was just what we were looking for late one afternoon. We sat outside, ordered a tray of cheeses and salamis which were divine. The ambiance makes this a MUST stop when visiting Tremezzo.

Went here because of the rave reviews; absolutely worth it. We visited on a Sunday night in the off-season and were fortunate to get the last table without a reservation. We got the wine flights and were not disappointed. Every single wine was amazing. The cheese and meat platter for two was delicious and wholly satisfying. The host gave us... More

Great atmosphere and very tastefully decorated. It has a large variety of great wines that you can also buy to bring home. The food was a pleasant surprise as well. A very relaxing place without noise and a beautiful terrace. Highly recommended!

Cracking little wine bar that does excellent food as well. Wide range or reasonably priced wine served by knowledgeable and friendly staff. Good was surprisingly good too. Well worth an evening.

We would like to thank all our guests that visit and reviewed us in our first 8 years of activity, Deborah & Joost.Our Winebar-Enoteca is specialized in platters prepared at the moment with local sliced cuts and cheeses.we don't not serve pasta, or maincourses because our philosophy is doing just a few things...but done in the proper way. Genuine ospitality and our motto "come like a guest go like a friend"
