The setting is unpretentious but the food and service are both excellent for the price. We had the set menu for twelve euro which included wine. The wild boar pasta was delicious. We walked there along a very pleasant path from Dorio and were made...More

The best seafood and fish on the Como lake. Very special dishes and sauces. The restaurant has zero-kilometer policy for all dishes: they are coming right from the lake.

First night in Italy and lake Como lived up to our high expectations. A family owned restaurant with lovley pasta, fish and meat all locally produced. Great service who also guided us to find small cheese dairys around the lake. Can truly recommend it.

The menu was entirely in Italian. All plates on the menu were either freshly caught fish or wild meat : deer, ezel, wild bore. So not recommended for kids. All plates had special preparation.

We tried to eat at this restaurant twice - the first time we entered at 14:30 and were curtly informed the restaurant was closed (despite people still sitting at their tables and eating food). This is quite typical of restaurants in the area however, as...More

We were staying nearby in Dorio and this was the only restaurant open on a Sunday night other than a pizzeria. I hesitate to call the lovely lady who served us staff, as she could easily have been one of the owners, but she had...More
