Lovely outdoor eating are on banks of Lake Como. Service is good, staff were attentive and hard working. Food generally good - we ate here twice whilst in Lenno. You need to book for the evening.

Had a lovely lunch in the sun. We arrived at about 11:45 straight off the ferry and it was empty, so had a table by the water. By about 12:15 the terrace was full. The service, food and wine were all excellent and had a very pleasant three hour lunch.

When we arrived this seemed like the perfect choice for our first dinner on Lake Como. Right on the water with a beautiful view. The atmosphere was really chilled out and the staff were very attentive. Our pasta was beautiful, some of the best I have had in Italy. If you are visiting Villa del Balbianello you will pass this...

If you're visiting Lake Como and want an affordable place to stay far from the maddening crowds, Albergo Plinio is ideal. Right on the water and 50 yards from the boat stop, the bay is quiet and quaint. The hotel has an excellent restaurant and serves a nice continental breakfast. I ate there both days I stayed this past August... More

It's coming to the end of the season, but Bellagio is still crawling with tourists and many of the eateries are pretty average. We took the ferry to Tremezzina and walked the Lake Como greenway to Lenno, pitching us up to the restaurants front door. The reception was so welcoming, the food was utterly delicious, the service brilliant and very... More

Have been coming here for years , most people choose to eat outside but inside has a good atmosphere and is less touristy! The food and wine are consistently good and the staff are always friendly, we were there recently as the season is coming to an end and they still managed to smile. Enjoy your break and see you...

My husband and I had been hiking the Greenway and upon reading a review by another hiker, we decided to make our lunch stop in Lenno at Albergo Plinio. Even though I felt under dressed in my hiking clothes, we were comfortable with the outside seating. The view could not have been better! We dined on spinach and ricotta stuffed... More

Great food with a great view! They have a nice lunch menu that is really reasonably priced. We enjoyed lunch on the patio with a nice view of Lake Como.

We had not researched restaurants in Lenno, and found this one on the lakeside surrounded by the weekly market. We were able to sit on the lakeside terrace and had a very good lunch with very good service. In many parts of the world such a location would indicate an over-priced tourist-trap, but not here. Recommended if you are in... More
