Spent the last evening of a 4 day trip to lake Como here with some friends and was blown away by the hospitality of the staff, the friendly locals, and the quality of food and wine on offer. This café/bar is situated close to the harbour and is an excellent place to while away the time waiting for your ferry/taxi-boat... More

While waiting for the ferry to Varenna, we stopped in for a cool one. Flavors were average, tables a little sticky. But nice shade to wait for the ferry. They had sports on the tv. Kids were happy with gelato. Portions were really big.

This is a bar on the ferry port. It has sky sports on a screen and it has local guests as well as tourists but it is good fun to have an evening drink here.

Visited this bar on a recent holiday to menaggio. The bar itself is quite lovely and was quite busy. Offers a good view of the lake but there was a severe lack of bad staff so had to wait 20 minutes for drinks after ordering them. Overall though probably the most the best bar in the area for watching football... More

Agreed they do say not fast food, agreed I will wait 20 minutes for the lasagne. Why would the spaghetti carbonara take longer than 20 minutes? Why would she not tell us how long? We gave up, suggested burgers. No still couldn't be done, only bread or pizza's. We decided to have a milkshake each and not push for our... More

This stop was towards the end of our stay on Lago di Como as we decided to have a goodbye drink before getting on the ferry to our train back to Milan. It was a very hot afternoon so I'm not sure if it was the heat/cold beverage combo or just the great atmosphere of the bar and the scenic... More

or you will find yourself running.....We got so involved in conversation that we almost missed our Ferry. Easy breakfast or snack. Food looks good especially the pastas. We were just having a quick sandwich and beer before taking the ferry. Great outdoor seating to watch the ferry come and go....but watch your time....the ferry will leave without YOU

Friendly staff, reasonably priced, good location next to lake shore, free wi-fi. Worth a visit while waiting for the ferry or passing time.
