Great food with a heavenly view. Book in advance - this place is on fire! Excellent service. They will make any dish for you even if it's not in the menu. Been there twice in a row - it's that great!

The views from this place is spectacular. The restaurant is really nice. The food was just ok. You should try to book your reservations while it's still light out to take in the scenery.

A fantastic little restaurant tucked away in Cernobbio. Great food, great service, and spectacular views.It's quite a way up, you might want to get a taxi if you are staying in Como!

Food was good and fresh. I had the tuna with vegtables. Atmosphere is cozy and the resturant is not big. Service was good. Best with the resturant was the amazing view over the Como lake, only that grants a visit at this resturant.

Your hotel or B&B should accommodate your request easily (and they speak the language!!) to make a reservation for you. Buon Appetito!
