Amazing food and beautiful view! I would defiantly recommend going to this traditional Italian restaurant as is one of the best on the lake. Well worth a visit. The service was great and people where lovely and produced food to high standards.

Best place to eat on Como! The service is excellent and friendly staff. The food is all homemade and is fantastic. I would definitely recommend Il Pontile, very welcoming and the chef is very passionate and cares a lot about the food.

Went to this place on advise of other reviews, and was not disappointed! The blueberry risotto is heaven! I was a bit dubious at first but went not the advice of other TA travellers. The antipasti platter of pork fat was unbelievably good! I know... probably a plate of pure cholesterol - but seriously you have to try it once in your life! Went there twice, and would have gone more often if staying longer. A little gem of a place... just smile and try to use your italian... it will get you a long way.

Having read the reviews, we approached with a little trepidation but, after a shaky start of noone seeming to know if they were full or not (I now understand they much prefer you to pre-book) we were seated and served some of the best food in and around Como. While a wild mountain blueberry risotto may sound bizarre, I would urge anyone to order it. Absolutely delicious. Nobody appears to speak English but some brave attempts on both sides to he understood and we got there in the end. We certainly have no complaints about the service but do be prepared to speak Italian. It's very much appreciated and warmed to.

We spent some days in Musso and were looking for a local restaurant. Having read the good reviews of Il Pontile we were looking forward to a great dinner. This hope was quashed soon after we entered the almost empty place (Friday in mid June at 8:30 pm). The waiter (or owner?) was very curt demanding fast orders. We asked for an English menus which had no prices. The food was served like we were In some army barracks. And it was just ok, nothing to write home about it. The young waitress was shy and probably nicer - but did not show it. Whether it was his general attitude or it was plain racism (we are a mixed family) is not clear. But one thing is clear: never again in Il Pontile.
