Jane and me have been Moto Guzzi owners and enthusiasts for over 40 years and for a long time had wanted to pay Mandello and its Museum both a visit and a tribute, test those secondary roads on our own, and walk the pathways in that breathtaking landscape. However, we never expected we would meet such authentic types like Gianni... More

Our family visited a couple of years back and we absolutely loved it. The B&B is a lovely place just around the corner from the main square in Mandello. The breakfast has a nice line of pastries from the local bakery. Mandello itself is beautiful and a more off-the-beaten-track location than the likes of Bellagio, which we much preferred. Plus,...

It is very close to everything! Gechi and Nena are wonderful people! Nena's son Thiago is a very warm hospitable person. The only thing I didn't like was the shower. Thiago sent me some pictures of the exact room we stayed in with a newly remodeled bathroom! It looks really nice. So that explains the 4 dots review. We fell... More

My husband and I stayed at Antica Officina last year. Gianni was a perfect host, I was suffering from a bad case of jet lag, and Gianni took my husband on a personal tour of the city.

My friend and I went to Lake Como last weekend and stayed at Antica Officina B&B.

“If you are travelling by train, it is easier to catch the train to Lecco as Johnny T will pick you up at the train station there, It was very easy to get on the wrong train due to language problems but it was very easy to get back on track but with all the stops between Lecco and Mandello del Lario, It would have been faster and easier not to mention enjoying the view along the road, to be picked up in Lecco”
