Lemmo: Trattoria Santo Stefano

Piazza 11 Febbraio 3 , Phone: 0344.55434

Reviewed by: HarveyK from MA, review #3727

When: 2011

Easily some of the best food to be found on Lake Como and in the Lombard region

Directions: In the main square in Lenno, across from the church

We visit Lake Como every Spring, and Trattoria Santo Stefano is one of the reasons we keep coming back. Usually we travel in a group of 5 friends, but this past April, it was expanded to 7.

There are so many things that I love on the menu, but my favorite is spaghetti carbonara and I've never had it better than here. Also in the spring they serve a fettucine with gorgonzola & melon, which we ordered for the table. Divine is the only word that comes to mind after the first mouthful.

For my secondo, I had a cottolette Milanese, which is so moist, tender with flavor that explodes in your mouth. We shared a few delicious desserts, including a tiramisu, which one of our friends could not stop talking about for the rest of the trip. We crossed the lake to eat there twice, for lunch, in the span of 7 days. It would have been more, but we were staying in Bellagio and the ferry schedule isn't favorable to having dinner there.

With a few liters of their house wine and several pitchers of aqua minerale, the tab came to about 22 euros per person for each meal.
