Excellent food and service in Como,

We stayed within walking distance of this restaurant and were quite pleased with both the food and the service. The staff was very patient with us as we tried to muddle through the language barrier (successfully we think). Worth a visit when in Como.

Visited twice as our first choice on one occasion was not open. No english spoken & no translation on menu but we got by with limited Italian & sign language. Lake fish was good as was the mixed grill. Recommended

We took my Mom and Aunt to this little restaurant in Monte Olimpino when they came to visit us here. We had never tried it, but some friends recommended it to us and said the fish was excellent! And they were right! I had a shrimp pasta (a special of the day) and it was very good! My Aunt and... More

We eat vegetarian so finding a place in Italy on a whim that was able to serve us meat free AND be incredibly tasty was a real treat..oh and the price was incredibly reasonable... don't be fooled by the modest exterior, there's awesome food inside

Up the road to Monte Olimpino you would hardly pay attention to a couple of windows named La Ghironda, but once you test it you will surely come back...
