While not over the top the breakfast buffet is just what a busy traveller needs. Nothing fancy but adequate and plentiful. We were taken care of by the owner who seems to do it all!! Coffee and Cappuccino were excellent.

We really enjoyed our stay in Mamma Ciccia. Very friendly warm helpful hosts who made us feel very much at home. Comfortable room on the 1st Floor and we had a lovely meal in their restaurant. Would recommend this place to enjoy a relaxing stay at Lake Como.

This place represents what your fantasy of a little court yard with amazing fresh Italian food and wine would be.The complimentary Presecco and visit to the wine cellar was the perfect start.The salad and gnocchi were very tasty as was the beef my husband had. The chef even came over to share a recipe. This is a must on your... More

We mainly went here due to the proximity to our Air BnB and due to the fact that we also had a discount. While the outside garden dining area is charming, the food was not our best meal in Italy.

After reading all the positive reviews, maybe too much expectation. Food was basic first dishes were good, second main dish disappointed, no question how the beef should be grilled. No oil pepper salt on the table. Service was absent and focus was not on serving, maybe something was wrong that day? Hope better for those who come after us.

We´ve stopped in Mamma Ciccia for one night and this was very pleasant surprise. Restaurant has its unique quiet atmosphere. The selection of dishes is not endless, but the food is really wonderful. They have their own wine cellar, where you can choose some nice wine. I wouldn´t say that it was somehow overpriced. Everything was correct and friendly. I... More

Perfect place for lunch. Food was delicious! I tried the soft polenta as a starter, first time I've had this, and I really enjoyed it. The perch with almonds and vegetables was delicious. The place has a really nice atmosphere and great service!
