Great value lunch menu

If you fancy something a bit different to pizza and pasta this place is a must. It's easy to miss from the front but it is proper high quality dishes cooked beautifully. The lunch menu is especially good value at 16 euro. Huge portions!

Recommended by trusted expat bar owner, we become a believer of traditional Italian lake region ingredients and cooking. Restaurant entrance and building--unassuming; but, large interior with well space tables with table clothes, few larger tables with wine waiting the expected local guests...few smartly dress stately gentlemen who must have use the premise at least few times a month all their...

I found this restaurant few years ago from the Celiac association in Italy. The next visit to Como with my family, I couldn't wait to eat there again. They have gluten free menu with plenty of choices, including fantastic deserts. The food is so tasty and authentic Italian, prepared to perfection! The service is incredible and great atmosphere.

We had some difficulties finding it because its entrance is so unassuming, but inside it is very pleasant. We got a very warm welcome although they didn't get our e-mail reservation. Two of us shared the Costata Fiorentina, a 2inch thick T-Bone steak cooked to perfection. It comes with potatoes and a big selection of grilled vegetables. Meat lover's paradise...... More

Pretty much in the centre of Como, quite unassuming outside but large inside. Food was a really good quality and service was equally good. Can recommend the food but the Tiramisu was not as good as expected quite plain. Overall recommended for atmosphere, and food.

I have been to Silenzio 3 times - and never been disappointed. Especially the risotto is a must, but fish and seafood is really nice as well!

My wife (Gluten Intolerant) and myself had dinner at Osteria l'Angolo del Silenzio. The place was packed with local people, which is always a good sign. My wife had amazing tagliatelle with mushrooms (funghi porcini), and I had an amazing pasta too. The service was kind and fast. definietly recommendable for Gluten intolerants or not.

This is a traditional elegant restaurant with great service and good prices. My partners mother talked about going there during the war. My favourite meal is the lake fish with risotto, worth going there just for this regional dish Also like the rabbit entree, the crumbed veal cutlet (elephant ears) Courtyard is lovely, relaxing. Can't remember how many times we... More
