Lago di Como is my favourite local Italian restaurant. Alberto and his staff are very welcoming and hard working, and the food is delicious!
Always lovely to see Alberto .. good food nice atmosphere.
Cosy atmosphere and friendly staff + food was exceptionally delish!
Great for kids. Relaxed friendly atmosphere. Yummy food. Highly recommend.
The food is always great @ Lago di Como, we had a new trainee waitress this time around, but the staff members’ attentiveness makes up for the slightly longer waiting time we experienced. The restaurant is great for friends and family gatherings, very cosy, and could be perfect if they could lower down the volume of the music. The kids really enjoyed their pizza too! Thank you, we’ll be back again soon.
We have been there 3 times now and it was better the first two times. Garlic bread wasn’t as good as before. For the wood fire pizza, we ordered the $18 magheritta pizza but wanted to exchange the mozzarella cheese for buffalo cheese so we paid $5 extra for the buffalo mozzarella cheese but of the six slices of pizza, only 3 pieces had buffalo cheese on it. So it was a bit disappointing. The pumpkin gnocchi was swimming in a pool of butter and there was only two tiny pieces of pumpkins. I wouldn’t recommend that dish. They charge a service fee for credit card payment which is very unusual. I have never got charged a credit card fee for Master Card in other restaurants. The service is good and food comes quickly but I am not sure if it is value for money.
Even though we had booked well in advance, our table for four was not ready upon arrival (we were dead on time) and we had to improvise putting tables together and trying to fix wobbly tables for the first several minutes. Not a good start to a night out. Unless you want pizza its a pretty limited menu. Very friendly wait-people however it was very busy and we had to continually attract attention to get our orders in. Garlic bread was very good straight for the pizza oven. For the price paid the linguine were small serves for pasta and not many prawns. Fish of day (snapper) was pretty unexciting and plain. French cutlets were OK, but again plain and overpriced. Based on this experience we decided to give dessert a miss. Corkage of $4 was reasonable. Music was muffled, loud and indistinct and just added to the noise quotient. We don't feel we will be returning, there are plenty of better restaurants for the same value around. A shame, because it could be a top spot. Maybe it should just solely stick to being a pizzeria and dispense with other courses.
Atmosphere great. Food good. Went on a Friday night and in my opinion were understaffed. One poor waitress + the guy making pizza (he was flat out with take-aways) Food came out quickly, once we ordered, but after that, felt more like a number. And when leaving, was asked by the manager why we didn't have any dessert. That was a first. Many people don't have dessert for various reasons. They could be watching their weight. They may be full. Why was he concerned unless he just wanted to get more money out of us? Left a bad taste in our mouths. It is a good restaurant, but could be great if they just refined a few of the things they did.
The service was terrific, very friendly and helpful, Pizza, pasta and gnocchi are delicious, one of the dessert was creme brule it was grainy and overcooked we told the owner , and he apologised, he gave us a Nuttella dream dessert for our group ( 20ppl) , Tiramizu was so yummy and decadent, only minor flaw , we dont really make a big deal out of it , definitely keep coming back for a meal
Lago di Como has been a local favourite for many years. Consistently good menu, good cooking and good service. It's great to be served a lasagne and a fettucine with prawns, both dishes properly hot.
