I don't know the name of this square either, but there is this big pink building named Berry's Bar, probably there is a bar as well, but I haven't explored... However, it is commonly used among the locals for sunbathing - they tend to gather on the benches in front and enjoy the sunshane and chit chat.There is also a nice fountain, lovely church in...more
I couldn't stop admiring this very beautiful house! It is right behind the restaurant on the "square", and the river is passing in front of it, and a few meters down it joins the lake. To enter the villa there is a big gate and then you have to cross a cute little bridge.I don't know if this is a private house or what (it seems to be private...)...more
Don't miss this wonderful restaurant at the same square, just a few meters from the monument! Even if you have no eating plans, at least stop by for a drink! It's in full glass and gives the sensation of being in the open space. Another peculiar feature is the waitor! The waitor is Asian and he was EXTREMELY kind and helpful, always smiling and a...more
I have no idea what's the real name of this square, if it's a square at all since it's not surrpunded by buildings, but anyway... It's the place on the lakeside where the station is, and this monument that irresistibly reminds me of the communist era, with all the statues errected to partisans. :-)more
Villa d'Este is one of the oldest historical villas of the lake. It was made in 16th century by cardinal Tolomeo Gallio.Nowadays it's a very luxurious hotel (it was transformed into a hotel already at the end of 19th century!) It's situated at the banks of the lake, with a pier in front and easily visible from any part of Cernobbio.If you want to...more
This is a veeeeeeeeery BEAUTIFUL restaurant at the main square in Cernobbio, by the lake side, where the boat station, heroes monument and children playground are. :) It's quite small, but impossible not to detect as it is the only restaurant/bar over there! :) It is almost entirely glass-walled, with wonderful overview on the square, lake and...more
This is another splendid pizzeria in Cernobbio. Its location is not spectacular - it's right on the main road to Como facing the street, but they have a very delicious calzone! Odd enough, Cernobbio has the best pizza's I've ever had! This is the second place I tried in Cernobbio, and it was splendid again! They are not limited to pizza only, they...more

'Onda' is one of the most trendy bar on the Como lake.
I have some doubts to put it in nightlife spot, because 'onda' is also a daylife spot: you can drink or eat something (also very good italian dishes) from the morning till the night.
By the way, in summer expecially on thursday night you'll find here really many many young persons, quite commercial music, good coktails...and so on.
The name 'onda' (=wave) is due to the peculiar roof's shape
Dress Code: Casual during the day.
Trendy by night.
Well, I don't know how to say this in English! Lizarding? :-) It means to stay on the sun like a lizard and enjoy it very much! These people were practicing this sport by the lake in front of Barry's Bar on these benches. They had such pleasurable faces with nirvana smiles and closed eyes! Like enchanted! :-) Some were chit chatting a bit, but mostly the location is used for lizarding. Lovely!!!
In summer you can take a swim in Cernobbio's Lido.
There you'll find two swimmingpools (one nly for children) directly on the lake.
You can rent a chair for the day, or you can use your beach towel.
This is a typical boat of the Como lake, a bit modernized version. This one is even named Cernobbio! You won't see them around the lake so often anymore, but sometimes they will surprise you! I like this strange boats very much! Especially when theyhave a "tent" open on the wires that you see as contour.more
Behind the restaurant I was talking about so much there are swimming pools, and in winter they can freeze and serve as a skate rink, however I haven't seen anyone doing that at the time we were there, the entire square was empty and we were the only guests of the restaurant together with an elderly couple... The kids here would have exploited the...more
