A delightful garden courtyard restaurant in a small hotel within walking distance of Villa D'Este. Seemed to be popular with locals. Fairly casual atmosphere, good food and wine and reasonable prices.

A huge selection of very eclectic pizzas in a nicely appointed room , in the center of Cernobbio, but glaring white light on top of white tableclothes was a bit harsh

Good pizza, expensive wine list, so we went for beers and wine by the glass. Note that there was a 3 euro cover charge per person (which adds up with 3 kids). Staff spoke English well.

We ate here one night when staying at the nearby Villa d'Este: it's in walking distance. Excellent pizza, friendly service, lovely outdoor garden area to sit on a warm summer evening. Ah, Italy!

I did like their pizza with Porcini mushroom. Went well with a good Prosecco. Sometimes they also offer beer from micro breweries. Service was excellent. Place looks nice, well lit, and spacious. Service is very professional. But the place gets very noisy when crowded, making conversation really hard to have. Good selection of grappa. Desserts are OK. Prices are good.... More

This restaurant has two directions. The first is "fine dining", but the second, and more successful direction is pizza, which it excels at!!! There are literally dozens of pizzas each for €8-12. The pizzas are tasty and the service is good.

We called past on our first night in Cernobbio and were a bit early. We hadn't yet been in Italy long and realised that many places simply won't allow people in before 7. This seems to harken back to old laws in Italy that legally restricted restaurants from opening early and other strange things like fixing the maximum price of... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. As I answered in the previous reply, we usually open when our Staff is ready... 10/15 minutes before 7 pm, sometimes even before! There is not a law in Italy that regulates the opening hours of the Restaurants, simply Italians usually eat after 8 pm and the most part of the Restaurant usually... More

Arrived at 6.52 asking for a table for one and was told they opened at 7. Ok. So I'll go and wander the streets shall I? With a heavy bag. That's much better than being given a little table to sit at. Came back at 7 on the dot to see about 14 people already seated. Received my main course... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry if you can not be seated before 7 pm. We open at 7 pm, it's true, but usually we let people can have a seat before that time, if possible. Our Staff always suggest to have a stroll, an aperitif or a look at the window shops of our beautiful road. When we are ready... More
