Restaurant Il Crotto, serving the best grilled meat in the village of Lierna since 1892
Between the restful green of the plane trees, just a few steps from Lake Como, lies Ristorante il Crotto. We serve delicious, typical Lombardy cuisine, enhanced with the flair of our experienced family chefs. Our rustic and cosy restaurant is ideal for big family gatherings or romantic evening meals. At the heart of the excellence of Restaurant Crotto is the passion for work and the history that links the Cattaneo family to the restaurant. Perfecting the recipes over the years, at Il Crotto you can enjoy a wide variety of dishes: delicious starters, fresh pasta, fish seconds and grilled meat cooked in the main hall, followed by handmade desserts. And the view of the lake from our terrace is unmissable in the warm summer months.
Restaurant Il Crotto, a family history
The Crotto was built as a tavern towards the end of the 19th century, at its lakeside location where it was refreshed by the mountain air coming down from the mountain along with the fresh spring water. An ancient property of the Pines of Liguria, the tavern was sold to Francesco and Giuseppe Panizza di Castello. Their nephew established the inn and transformed it into a restaurant. Upon departing for Argentina, the restaurant was taken over by his parents Giovanni Panizza Giuanòla and Ancilla Barindelli, assisted by their daughters Luigia and Ambrogina, who introduced the sale of wine along with the food served and set up a bowling area beneath the trees. In the 1950's the serving of food was continued by Bruno Cattaneo, son of Luigi, and his wife Adamoli Elide, who made it a quaint and renowned restaurant known especially for serving delicious lake fish and grilled meats. In turn, their children continued their tradition and today Gianluigi, son of Bruno and Elide, runs the restaurant with his daughter, Stefania, who is head-chef.
