12 romantic restaurants on Lake Como


that Lake Como is a very romantic place is undeniable!

In this beautiful setting, if you want to organize a romantic dinner, just have a terrace, a table and two chairs and it’s almost done.

But since details make all the difference, choosing a restaurant with a certain atmosphere is also important.

The idea of publishing an article on this subject came to me from a reader of my blog, who a few days before Valentine’s Day wrote to me for advice on romantic restaurants around the lake.

It was natural for me to turn the question back to my blog community.

And here is the list that came out!

Two restaurants I like:

Crotto dei Platani (Via Regina 73, Brienno) – it is a historic restaurant with a beautiful terrace on the lake, full of perfect nooks and crannies for a tête-à-tête evening.

La Piazzetta (Piazza Roma 4/8, Argegno) – beautiful atmosphere on the little square of Argegno and excellent dishes. Open also in the winter months, when most of the restaurants on the lake close.

My blog community suggested:

La Tirlindana (Piazza Giacomo Matteotti 5, Sala Comacina) – I’ve been there and I confirm! Everything at the top. It is located in one of the most romantic and picturesque corners of the lake, in front of the Comacina Island. Lake view guaranteed.

Locanda La Tirlindana

La Darsena (Via Regina 3, Tremezzo) – this restaurant is also a guarantee. If you are looking for a romantic location, this is perfect especially in summer, for its beautiful terrace on the lake.

La Darsena

Locanda Sant’Anna (Via Schignano, Sant’Anna) – it is the right place “for something more mountain, but chic”. Open year-round.

Trattoria del Porto (Via Del Pontile 26, Careno di Nesso) – this is a very local restaurant, as suggested by the community. Also this one is perfect in summer. Best to book.

Trattoria del Porto

Feel (Via Armando Diaz 54, Como) – I’ve never been there, but I’ve been dreaming of going there for years. Closed on Sundays.

Il Ristorante di Paolo (Largo Cavour 5, Menaggio) – I have never been in this restaurant, but many people suggest it! I’ll make up for it soon and go there!

Casa del Portico (Via del Riale 8, AzzanoTremezzina) – its patio overlooking the lake (even though it is located inside the village) and its selected products, some grown directly in the garden of the property, for me are already two good reasons to mark the name of this little restaurant. [Closed permanently – Update 30/12/2021]

Belvedere (Piazza Casartelli 3, Torno) – here you’ll find another beautiful terrace overlooking the lake, in the most characteristic point of the village of Torno. Very interesting menu.

Alle Darsene di Loppia (Via Melzi d’Eril, Bellagio) – its intimate pergola overlooking a small harbor is perfect for a romantic dinner. As for the cuisine, just take a look at the reviews to understand that the level is very high.

Momi (Frazione Girola, Blevio) – some days ago I was in Blevio, a village that I had never visited, and I happened, by chance, on the terrace of this restaurant at sunset. What I said to myself was “I absolutely want to come back here for a romantic dinner”.
