I grew up in Italy, am a self-described foodie and found that most of the restaurants in Lago di Como trended towards crappy tourist fare. This was a shinning example of traditional Lombardy cuisine. This family-run restaurant is a jewel and well worth the winding, narrow road you have to drive to get there.

You will not be disappointed.

The food was decent, especially the rabbit. We ate outside and the surroundings were nice. The service was horrible. They left empty bottles of water on the table for the entire meal. They never advised the rabbit portions were to be shared between 3 people, and they forgot to serve the kids. The orders were mixed up, and they did not bring anymore water for the meal. The owner also looked like she was having a bad day, and was not pleasant. Good food bad experience, would not recommend

Our wonderful hotel La Perla recommended us this restaurant. A hidden gem in the mountains above Tremezzo. It’s tiny and family run so booking probably essential especially if you’d like to sit outside. Small menu with the family’s specialities. We had rabbit and local fish with wonderful grilled veg and it was all delicious. You feel like only the locals know about this place.

Authentic simple local cuisine, just how it should be. Don't expext pizza's and pasta's here but rustic food from Lombardy. The food is tasteful, the atmosphere authentic and for those, who want to have a feeling for the local culture, this place is perfect.

The food menu is rather small but with a long list of wines (food is one page in the menu, the wine 10 pages). Therefore the place is not suitable for picky eaters. The braised beef and the tagliata di manzo was great, the vino della casa drinkable and the price moderate,

This restaurant has been around and serving the same dishes since 1950. The food is ok to very good but be warned order half what you think you need. If you don't the cost will be high and you will regret it.

The asparagus Jun season is delicious with quite generous helpings, enough to feed four. The polenta and cheese is a house speciality, which again,is far too big for one person. And the rabbit is enough for two people. Very good wines but will accelerate the cost of the meal.

If you follow my advice you will not be disappointed otherwise you will feel you have poor value for the money spent.

We had a delicious lunch but the cost should have been €80 for four not €160. We simply ordered too much food.

This was our fault and not the restaurant.

So be warned. A very good choice for a relaxed lunch with magnificent lake view in a traditional rustic charming family restaurant became a very expensive one for the quantity we ordered.
