Great atmosphere and very tastefully decorated. It has a large variety of great wines that you can also buy to bring home. The food was a pleasant surprise as well. A very relaxing place without noise and a beautiful terrace. Highly recommended!

Cantina Follie is a casual, outdoor wine bar that serves light fare. A short stroll from our hotel in Tremezzo, wander up an alley, go through a small door and up the stairs in a wine store then onto a terrace with tables lit above by fairly lights. It's charming, beautiful, and romantic like a poem. We ordered an antipasto... More

Knowledgeable staff who explained the origins and styles of the wines -I chose the local flight. Comprehensive cheese plate to accompany it and particularly liked the apple jam.

Cantina Follie is located several flights up from the main street. It is a hidden gem. We spent several hours tasting wine, munching on cheese and charcuterie and learning all about a series of fascinating wines and wine regions from the owner. It is an experience not to be missed.

Description
We would like to thank all our guests that visit and reviewed us in our first 8 years of activity, Deborah & Joost.Our Winebar-Enoteca is specialized in platters prepared at the moment with local sliced cuts and cheeses.we don't not serve pasta, or maincourses because our philosophy is doing just a few things...but done in the proper way. Genuine ospitality and our motto "come like a guest go like a friend"
