The location of the hotel and restaurant are amazing and so beautiful. I was really looking forward to a special dinner with my family but the food was definitely below average and very disappointing. I would go back for a drink but not for dinner.

The serving staff is exceptionally helpful. Meal was superb. On hot summer days, I suggest receiving a table in the garden area rather than inside

Delicious food. So much nicer than the routine Italian menu that we've been seeing everywhere. Not cheap but certainly not outrageously expensive, either. Don't bypass the vegetarian menu. My husband wanted a side of pasta marinara. We hadn't looked at the vegetarian menu but there...More

After a reception on a balcony overlooking Lake Como, two of us were able to obtain a table without reservations. The atmosphere is lovely, the food was delicious and the view over the lake is memorable. Highly recommended.

Dear guests, we are so happy to read everything was perfect at our restaurant Royal Gourmet During summer weekends is better making reservation for one table at our restaurant! We hope to see you again next time!

Outstanding menu. Everything on there is great. The desert options are especially great. The lamb, all the fish options, and pasta options are great. Salmon and Beef for the appetizers were excellent.

We had lunch here as staying in the hotel. Wonderful al-fresco setting, under the shade of an ancient wisteria, overlooking the lake. We had the chicken salad and the mozarella and tomato salads, both superb. The mozarella was outstaning. Great selection of breads and breadsticks....More

We stayed at the hotel and ate at the restaurant before a wedding we were attending. It was phenomenal from start to finish. The location beside the lake was beautiful, the food was fabulous and the service outstanding! We loved it!

The first time we didn't finish our food in Italy! The veal was completely over cooked and tasteless, the starter like a cheese soup without any flavor... In the end the did not charged the food, but what a shame for such a lakeside gourmet...More
