A beautiful place to visit in the evening, the courtyard feels like a secret garden, hidden away and difficult to spot. A tranquil bar with nice wines and good service made it a highlight of our visit to Cernobbio.

Had a lunch there; caprese (average) and a pizza (also average). But the beer was cold and the view is awesome. They always serve pizzas, but at more regular hours serve other food.

Ate here twice. A good selection of salads if you want to eat lighter. Also some sandwiches. Only a few tables but other seating at couches. Staff does not speak much English but are extremely helpful and friendly

Lovely setting just outside the gates of Cernobbio. An unusual outdoor romantic Cocktail setting..ideal for North Americans who find that hard to find in Italy. The appetizers served with cocktails are fantastic. The setting romantic and comfortable.

Great place for a glass of wine in the afternoon. Impossible to get any service for dinner, so we had to walk out.

We went with a group of 5 couples on a busy Sunday night. The outdoor seating in the piazza jammed, so we were seated in the upstairs dining room, which was very quiet, though the ambiance is quite nice. The food was excellent, especially the pizza and the home-made pasta, but our waiter was very stand-offish, to the point of... More

Also received plastic cutlery and cups to complete our picnic. So friendly too that we almost had to remind them to let us pay! Wish we had... More

A wonderful place to spend an evening over a glass of wine. The staff incl the owner as we understood are very nice and helpful, treating you to a franciacorta as an aperitivo. Very good selection of good Italian wine by glass and at reasonable prices, though they also have some pricey stuff. The place itself is very nicely situated,... More

We dropped in La Piazzetta Cafè for breakfast one day and that was the most beautiful breakfast in Italy! First of all it was a wonderful surprise knowing that they use a Nespresso Coffee Machine…I love the taste of this coffee…I had an... More

Lovely courtyard bar with a tiny meal of the day menu with about three choices but they are all wonderful, if not a little simple. The waitress is lovely and very friendly at the same time as speaking almost no English at all. Be prepared to be patient because the drinks do tend to take a while to arrive.
