We ate here one night when staying at the nearby Villa d'Este: it's in walking distance. Excellent pizza, friendly service, lovely outdoor garden area to sit on a warm summer evening. Ah, Italy!

I did like their pizza with Porcini mushroom. Went well with a good Prosecco. Sometimes they also offer beer from micro breweries. Service was excellent. Place looks nice, well lit, and spacious. Service is very professional. But the place gets very noisy when crowded, making conversation really hard to have. Good selection of grappa. Desserts are OK. Prices are good.... More

This restaurant has two directions. The first is "fine dining", but the second, and more successful direction is pizza, which it excels at!!! There are literally dozens of pizzas each for €8-12. The pizzas are tasty and the service is good.

We called past on our first night in Cernobbio and were a bit early. We hadn't yet been in Italy long and realised that many places simply won't allow people in before 7. This seems to harken back to old laws in Italy that legally restricted restaurants from opening early and other strange things like fixing the maximum price of... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. As I answered in the previous reply, we usually open when our Staff is ready... 10/15 minutes before 7 pm, sometimes even before! There is not a law in Italy that regulates the opening hours of the Restaurants, simply Italians usually eat after 8 pm and the most part of the Restaurant usually... More

Arrived at 6.52 asking for a table for one and was told they opened at 7. Ok. So I'll go and wander the streets shall I? With a heavy bag. That's much better than being given a little table to sit at. Came back at 7 on the dot to see about 14 people already seated. Received my main course... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry if you can not be seated before 7 pm. We open at 7 pm, it's true, but usually we let people can have a seat before that time, if possible. Our Staff always suggest to have a stroll, an aperitif or a look at the window shops of our beautiful road. When we are ready... More

Evening was too cold to sit outside in the very nicely covered patio and we were seated inside, in a beautiful restaurant with tables set with white linnen. Service by Massimiliano and Michael was swift and very professional and friendly, complimenti! Menu read traditional 3 course Italian dishes but we chose from a wide, very wide choice of pizza's.

The pizza was wonderful! Go before 8 pm for best service or just be patient, the food is worth it! Also, very reasonable prices for the atmosphere

Good menu and something for everyone at a fair price.. Pizza was very well made with quality ingredients. Mix of locals and tourist. Lovely Garden. . When it gets busy after 20:00 , the service tends to get slower, but is no problem if you are not in a hurry.. Good for groups or families.

Very nice terrace and tasty food. We really enjoyed it - the pizzas were delicious and our small daughter was delighted with her very tasty spaghetti and tomato sauce.
