No words to describe this restaurants from the position and lake food point of view.
This is the perfect combination if you have to spend a romantic dinner in an hot summer night.
To be suggested as one of the best on the Como's Lake.
The bill.............just a delicious surprise comparing what you can receive from this restaurant and its waiters

My wife and I enjoyed our time at Sottovento Lago di Como. The service was fine, the views outstanding, the ambience very nice and our meals were very good.

Our party of four should have know better when we first arrived and the man at the front desk near the bar didn't see our reservation! But we just assumed it would be ok ! Mistake number 1. We sat down at a table overlooking the lake and within 10 mins were greeted by the waiter who asked our water preferences, with or without gas . 2 mins later the water arrived .
Mistake number 2 was assuming that he would be back in 5-10 mins to take our order ! After 40 mins of trying to once again get the waiters attention he came over and we all ordered our entrees along with a bottle of vino .
Waiting for the wine & bread was like winning the lotto when it finally arrived 15 mins later. The meals came within 45 mins tasting like noddles with canned sauce !
Mistake number 4 ordering dessert/ coffee and after 30 mins and practically chasing the waiter to respond to us we asked him where are
our desserts, his response was ~
Oh you want dessert ? I forgot to put them in ...
Are you kidding me ??? That was so ridiculous I will NEVER go back there or recommend it . So rude and disrespectful to all four of us . We were the only Americans in the place which was 30% full . They just don't care about good service or for that matter any service . Don't waste your time or money and eat somewhere else .

We came for dinner during the off season and were treated to grand attention by the staff. The food was excellent, the price reasonable. All in all, a great experience.

Sottovento is a little off the beaten track, they probably have to try harder. And they do. Standard dishes, just done a bit better. Wonderful at sunset!
