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 on Lake Como.

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

And here is the list that came out!

Three restaurants I love:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Antica Trattoria del Risorgimento (Via Sant’Abbondio 8, Azzano – Tremezzina)

Perfect if you love a warm ambience in the style of an old-fashioned trattoria, if you like to be pampered by the owner’s attentions and if you appreciate seasonal menus rich in fresh, local produce. The old open fireplace is fantastic, which in itself already creates atmosphere. And divinely served dishes!

My blog community suggested:

4. La Tirlindana (Piazza Giacomo Matteotti 5, Sala Comacina)

It is the right place “for something more mountain, but chic”. Open year-round.

7. Trattoria del Porto (Via Del Pontile 26, Careno di Nesso)

I’ve never been there, but I’ve been dreaming of going there for years. They have very few tables and reservations are always required.

11. 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”.


12. Amandus Restaurant (Via Statale 125, Mandello del Lario)

The name of this venue returns frequently and those who recommend it ensure an intimate and romantic atmosphere, with breathtaking views and perfect corners for dinner for two.
