“Good food, great service and view”

Reviewed 31 July 2017

We visited Villa Cipressi with some friends.

Firstly, there is a car park immediately opposite, making life very easy.

The weather was good & we were offered a choice & chose to sit outside & were seated within seconds of arriving.

The service was very attentive, friendly and efficient. We were offered plenty of advice on options to choose from for all courses.

The food was great. We tried the lamb, steal, beef tartare and fish and we all enjoyed our dishes. They were all fresh, well prepared and delicious.

After dessert, we moved to the lakeside tables and enjoyed our espressos and the view.

A great place for a lunch and we will not hesitate to return.

We enjoyed a superb lunch here after touring the famous gardens at Villa Monastero and Villa Cipressi. The service and food were excellent and the setting on a beautiful terrace overlooking Lake Como was sublime

I visited for dinner with my girlfriend and had an excellent meal while we enjoyed watching the sunset over the lake. The restaurant is on the far side of town, and it's a nice walk from the development on the waterfront through cobblestone lanes to reach it. The beautiful hotel and grounds include the pergola-covered courtyard which hosts the restaurant, and every table has a view of the lake. We had to sit further back due to a wedding reception at the best tables on the terrace, but it wasn't a problem. The prices are a bit steep, but not out of range for this tourist town, especially given the view, quality, and service. Consider it a worthwhile splurge!

We went here a few times for Lunch and Dinner. We sat on the terrace, which had fantastic views of the lake and feels very Mediterranean . They do a lot of weddings here, I can understand why with such a lovely setting. The food was nice and would recommend it. You can also go for a walk around the gardens, which are nice.
