We had seen this restaurant on our travel company's app & it said the pizzas were the best so, while visiting Tremezzo, we decided to give them a try for lunch. We were greeted by a very friendly waiter & he was happy to confirm his pizzas were the best. (Of course he would!). The pizzas were delicious, as was... More

El Timon was a recommendation from our concierge; we were looking for someplace nearby, tasty, and quiet, that overlooked the lake. We had a nice beef carpaccio, yummy pizza, and a lovely bottle of wine. All were delicious and reasonably priced. It's a fun spot that locals seem to enjoy as well as visitors. I am looking forward to returning... More

Considering it is in the surrounds of some very expensive hotels, El Timon offers tasty Roman style thin crust pizzas at a good price. The house wine is tasty and well priced. I would certainly return.

I decided to spend the day ferrying round Lake Como. Came to Tremezzo right at lunchtime and after wandering up and down past the lakeside restaurants, chose El Timon. I was on my own and looking forward to a peaceful lunch with a good book and lovely view and this was just the place. I had Tortellini su Fonduta di... More

I found this Ristorante to have the most reasonable prices of the handful of restaurants/pizzerias in the Tremezzo village. The food was very tasty, servings generous and the service was acceptable.

We didn't expect much from this restaurant (which was suggested to us by our hotel valet), however, we were surprised. The pumpkin/amaretto risotto was a treat and my husband's steak was cooked to perfection. Desserts...Ah, chocolate...need I say more?

Had lunch here today. Great value, nice food and service. The pizzas looked good but after being in Italy for 3 weeks we drawled over the New York hamburger and chips went down well with a beer! Very nice with a view to die for!
