Tables are set out on a lovely terrace with vines growing overhead. Food is mainly slices of meat in various sauces served with polenta. The restaurant claims polenta as its speciality. This is great for whiling away a couple of hours on a fine afternoon,...More

I've been here with some friends of mine. The location is so quaint, as is the beautiful village of Brunate. The restaurant room is small and very cozy. The furniture is typical of a mountains cottage. The menu has something like, 12-15 dishes, plus desserts....More

Being from the region it does tick all the boxes for a traditional trattoria: wood-cladded walls, fireplace and old bits and bobs around the dining room. Friendly staff - a couple of young lads - and good, traditional food. Best tip...always oder a side portion...More

Stumbled upon this place when in Como a couple of weeks ago and was not disappointed. After a cold morning exploring Como this was the perfect, cosy lunch we wanted. A small place with a small menu but you know that everything is made with...More

Nice place, we had the polenta with brasato and it was very tasty, however I suggest to bring a set of cards as the service takes very long.

Hard to find - but well worth it when you do. Fabulous food in an out of the way place. Polenta was great - and the mushroom pasta looked good too. Home made pannacotta was the highlight.

We discovered the place by fluke, after taking the “funicular” from Como to Brunate and enjoying the view, we saw the sign to the Trattoria, which takes you to some small back streets. The place is warm and welcoming; the terrace can be enjoyed on...More
