This is hands-down one of the most incredible secret establishments in Como. Firstly, because it’s located on Via Vitani, which is one of the most elegant, ancient streets around, and secondly, because it has the most exquisite jewellery – including vintage diamonds! To make it even better, there are also some small tables where you’re always welcome to sit down and taste a speciality tea or coffee handmade by owner Maria Grazia Lopez. Did we mention they also do the most incredible martinis?

This is where Il Sereno’s Vaporina del Lago comes in handy, as you’ll need to take a trip to Cremia for this next secret locale. Now you may be thinking, what makes these cocktails so special? The answer lies in the distinct artisanal nature of everything on the menu: each carefully crafted cocktail is made from syrups, liquor, sodas, and bitters that are sourced from the lake and surrounds. Better yet, the bar is located in an old pier that adds to the atmosphere of the experience. The owner, Andrea Paci, is known as one of the best bartenders in Lake Como; pay him a visit!
All aboard to Nesso! Prepare to have your taste buds tantalised once more, this time, with some of the best pizza around and even better views. Owners Davide and Giorgia have their own smallholding where they grow fruits and vegetables which are then translated into delicious food in their renowned kitchen.
We’ve told you where to find the best cocktails, but what about those among us who prefer something less sweet, like craft beer, perhaps? If that’s what your heart desires, Aqua Dulza is here to deliver. A guesthouse turned B&B, this bar and bistro serves delicious, locally sourced meals from their Tremezzo location. Enjoy the food while learning about the building’s 200 year history.
