Description: The staff of "Crotto dei Pescatori" is pleased to invite you to visit one of the most evocative locations on Lake Como. Staying in our comfortable rooms or at the restaurant, in the midday brightness, when the sun brushes the mountaintops, or in the pink light of sunset, when the breeze calms and the last sunbeams are reflected in the lake, you can relax and taste the delicacies that our Chef will be happy to prepare for you. The lake will charm and delight you.

The best thing about this place is their gorgeous view, and a large terrace to sit and enjoy it! The fish I had didn't blew me away, but others were pretty satisfied with their pizza. Good selection of wines too!
Prices are mid-range, small one meal dinner plus drinks were 112 euros for six people.

Food was very delicious however service was a bit slow - but who cares when you have this nice view? :) I think this was the No. 1. place during our 4 night stay in this area -
where we had the best pizza. Highly recommended. It's worth to book a table in advance and also bear in mind that off-season they might be closed on Mondays. We paid 47 EURs for 2 pizzas, 2 beers (special Italian craft beer) and one starter.

Crotto dei Pescatori is located down a slight hill from the main road, right by the water at the Northern-most tip of Lezzeno.

The views from it's Terrace are amazing, especially as the sun is setting...

The food here is very good - although the name suggests Fish, which indeed it does have plenty of, it also offers excellent Pizza.

So pretty much everything here was great, except perhaps for the very slow service.

Although the staff were very pleasant, it was strange that service was so very slow, even by the expected laid-back Italian standards...

Still, that was the only thing that we had to complain about here and I would still very much recommend it to those staying in / passing through Lezzeno.

Found this on our last night in Lezzeno. Not highly advertised locally but on the waters edge, quality and deliciousness for sensible price. Wish we had found it on our first evening.

Staying locally on holiday so this place was a must in view of its lakeside position.

Hadn't prebooked but this wasn't a problem. Plenty of tables with most folks seated in the partiall covered terrace.

Service was pleasant and unhurried. Most of the staff spoke some English which made things easier.

As with most of the local restaurants local lake fish dishes dominated the menu although pasta dishes and an extensive pizza selection also featured.

Disappointingly the basket of bread delivered to our table was largely stale. However, our chosen courses were freshly cooked and of a good standard.

Whether it is a feature of Italian restaurants I am unsure but there were no little extra touches that make it a more special experience, i.e. that you usually find in good French restaurants.
