Locanda del Pilone Hotel Review: Locanda del Pilone is situated on the Madonna di Como hill, a site with history stretching back to Celts who pre-dated the Romans. The name of the god of banquets, Como, came to be associated with the Roman festivities honoring Bacchus, the god of wine. The Locanda del Pilone restaurant embraces these traditions with innovative interpretations of classic Mediterranean cuisine and an extensive wine list. The rooms at the inn come with satellite TV, a mini-bar, complimentary Wi-Fi, a safe and air-conditioning. Furniture is upholstered with custom-made fabrics from the San Patrignano Foundation, a non-profit rehabilitation community cooperative. Rooms have extraordinary views of the surrounding countryside and its sweeping fields of grapevines. Room prices include breakfast. The hotel is prepared to host corporate meetings and events and provides catering throughout Piedmont, Lombardy and Liguria. Special events for guests include a simulated truffle hunt with an expert hunter, a truffle analysis class, cookery classes, a wine-tasting seminar and hot air balloon flights.
