When traveling, my husband and I always look for this kind of restaurant that offers good food not too fancy at a reasonable price with a family atmosphere and where locals go. VECCHI TAVERNOLA is one of this kind. We had one lunch and two dinner there. We ate fish, pizza & the pasta. Thank you for the owner who... More

we went to Lake Como in November and stayed at the Villa Flori - we asked them to recommend a restaurant to us and they did, put it wasn't Vecchia Tavernola down the road - we decided to stop in anyway - and we ate every meal there for three days. We tried their Pizza, Pasta, calamari and Mussels and... More

Ignore the exterior, ignore the fact that it is next to car park and on a junction, take note of the fact the locals who appear to be in the know are eating here. Then walk in and order past, risotto, or pizza and be delighted.

Wished we had tried this restaurant earlier in our holiday. Food was excellent and good value for money. Restaurant was busy but staff were really good with a good sense of humour. If in the area do visit

Friendly, relatively fast service, excellent food. We ate there twice. Porcini pasta is fantastic! Fried calamari (as a second dish) probably one of the best I've ever had (Alaska Ketchikan's at Fox lodge is still better though). Definitely recommended!

We stopped for lunch after reading TA reviews and it was great as promised. The kids shared a Hawaii pizza, we had bruschetta and gnocchi de la cash which was absolutely lovely! Service was good but a little slow. We were sitting on the terrace next to the dock, which was great because it gave the kids something to watch... More

A nice restaurant with a garden. A large selection of traditional Italian food. This restaurant is within walking distance from hotel Sheraton.

We fancied a venture out one evening from our hotel, and found this place down the road. The staff were all very accommodating and made us feel welcome. The food was very good too. I had a Pizza Quattro Stagioni and my partner Spaghetti Bolognaise. The beers were all very good. Prices were all very competitive and the place was... More

We found this place after staying at the Sheraton, which is a few minutes walk away. It was full of local people, so that must be a good sign. The food was good, the staff were friendly and the price was very reasonable. The Tiramisu was lovely. Would recommend a visit.
