Il Crotto: guest house yesterday, restaurant today
Owned by the Cattaneo family since the 1950s, Il Crotto was originally an Inn and stables but soon owners Elide and Bruno, understanding the potential of Il Crotto transformed it into the busy, traditional restaurant it is today. Our spacious, rustic rooms envelop you in a warm, welcoming atmosphere that will make you feel you've stepped back in time. Our three rooms are perfect for every occasion and in the main you can admire the chefs in action while they prepare some of the many fresh, seasonal meat, fish and vegetable dishes. During the warmer months you can dine on our beautiful terrace, enjoying a unique view over Lake Como. We also provide a large parking area shaded by 180 year old plane trees next to the restaurant.
