As we were staying fairly high on the hill, Crotto Di Biosio was one literally the only place within close proximity. But we needn't have worried. The staff were attentive as soon as we entered, offering us a great choice of drinks and food that reflected the region and its freshest ingredients. The waiter was especially pleasant, and made us... More

The views from the restaurant are breath-taking. There is seating both inside and outside on the terrace. The staff treated us very well, service was prompt and efficient. At least one staff member speaks excellent English. We were impressed with the food, particularly because aside from the usual dishes one finds in restaurants in this area such as sliced cold...

The food at this restaurant was really tasty, and clearly made with a lot of care for quality ingredients. I had the lasagne which was really different - made with seafood rather than red meat - absolute delight! Deserts were very special.

During our stay in the Lake Como area, we decided to dine here. After traveling through France and Switzerland, we were absolutely amazed at the prices! The value for the amount and quality of the food is unbeatable! We had appetizers, wine, main dishes, and dessert! All was absolutely delicious! Definitely recommend to those in the Lake Como area.

After returning from a lovely walk along the hill side, this seemed to be the place to have lunch. The food was good but not as refined as one would expect in a Grotto. It was slightly disappointing.

An absolute gem ! Everything they serve is grown or caught by the owners . Not a huge menu but just stunning in its simplicity and freshness like you wouldn't believe . The view is a killer too and the service by the young gentleman who's mumma does the cooking was delightful . For some silly ignoramus to suggest that... More

An absolute gem of a restaurant! The food the service the view all compliment each other! If you want to spoil someone special this is the place to it. Typical local fare and a good wine selection. Renzo Sartori

Good place serving local food to the local customers, but it is strongly recommended to speak the local language if you want to get the most of it. It is located a bit off the main routes, but the view on the Lago di Como is absolutely amazing.

After coming to Lake Como, we expected the exquisite Italian dining experience. Unfortunately this was not the case. We were recommended coming here by our host but as we arrived, the staff seemed surprised that they had guests. On top of this they took 30 minutes to see to us despite us being the only people in the restaurant. They... More

Fabulous place for a relaxed and traditional Italian meal - the views are stunning and the service excellent and homely. Used by the locals and there is no better recommendation.
