We enjoyed our meal here. We went very traditional, milanace and eggplant parmigiana, both prepared well. Our criticism is how tight the tables are. We sat only about a foot away from another couple. We actually ended up chatting and enjoyed this, but not everyone...More

We were fortunate to get a same-day dinner reservation, seated in the little window to the left of the front door. The restaurant is on a small lane with only a few tables. Extremely friendly service, great recommendation for a local wine (€20). The lasagna...More

We had a couple of lovely means here. I would recommend the mixed seafood starter in particular it was stunning. It is at the top of a quiet little lane up from the lake shore. The service was very friendly and helpful.

Great food, great service, central location. Highly recommended. We had a great paella, a surprising dish for being in Italy on Lake Como, but it was delicious!

Stopped in without a reservation and were delighted to be seated. Ordered the special of the day as started - scallops with prawns - and mixed local seafood plate. What arrived was two beautiful looking plates and amazingly sweet meals. Only criticism, the mixed plate...More

After reading others reviews, I opted for the lobster pasta. The dish didn't do it for me. The lobster was overcooked and the pasta had a strong yet flat taste of tomato - not enough flavor. It fell below the mark. My husband ordered the...More

I am in the USA and trying to make a reservation for 2 people for dinner on Sunday, September 27 at 6:30pm using the email address given for bookings on both this site and their own site. I have been getting no response. I prefer not to call as it is quite expensive from here and unfortunately I do not speak Italian. What has worked for others?
