My sister and I ate here after a recommendation from the hotel. Great choice! So great we came back a second time. The little garden was very nice. The food was great - we had the specials each time. The house wine was also very good. We did not have reservations the first night but were seated within 5 minutes... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel (Palace Hotel) and was an enormous disappointment. It's a pretty restaurant with very nice service, but the food was horrendous. A steak was ordered medium and came out very nearly raw. The outer skin was just slightly tan, as if it had been put on a griddle for just 30 seconds per side.... More

We were on a day trip around the Como area, and passed by this place for lunch. The entrance is on a quiet street, but located within the central area, and within a 5-10 min walk from the ferry terminal. There were enough spare tables and we were seated straight away. English menus were available, although descriptions were lacking. I... More

My friends and I had an amazing meal! Delicious! On top of that, the people who work in the restaurant are so very friendly. We were all hugging by the time we left and we felt like we were leaving a family's home. Special experience for us ladies!

Restaurant Sociale is on a side street just a couple blocks from the Duomo and the old town center. I think it see more locals eat there than do the restaurants on the main streets nearby. The restaurant was pleasant inside with a nice atmosphere. The food was very good – I had the risotto and my wife had pasta.... More

this restaurant is situated close to the duomo and the pizza roma in come. it has a modest interior, no frills setting with genuine friendly staff. the name "sociale" has to do with the theatre sociale which used to be nextdoor. the kitchen is simple, honest and good. staff is helpful and friendly. good choice of wines. no outdoor seating...

Located in the historical center, Ristorante Sociale offered delicious fish and meat dishes along with traditional pasta. We ate in the courtyard which was surrounded by old stone walls--just charming. Service was excellent and the price was reasonable.

We followed advice from TripAdvisor and found Ristorante Sociale a short walk from Piazza Cavour. The downstairs room was hopping beneath its brick-lined vaulted ceiling, so they opened the room upstairs for our group of four. massive ornate fireplace and frescoed ceiling impressed us from beginning! Most of us ate the osso buco and one had vitello tonnato which were... More
