The service was great and food was delicious! The gnocchi sociale and spaghetti carbonara was really tasty. We would definitely come back if we visit Como, Italy again.

While on a recent conference in Como, I was lucky enough to be invited to a dinner at Sociale. A group of 16 of us sat up stairs, it was a perfect setting for a group of this size and as the rest of the room filled up, the atmosphere was great. What was even better was the service and... More

After a couple of lovely days in Milan, we fancied a visit to Lake Como. A straight forward day return ticket was procured at Cadorna station (9E each) and we set off on our hour long journey to Como Lago. A worthwhile trip taking in the Funicular, a climb to the Voltaire lighthouse and the Duomo. And for lunch we... More

We were seated upstairs which is not quite as charming as the lower level but as the room filled up with locals it was equally inviting. The handsome fireplace, the excellent food, and wine made this restaurant a winner.

Traditional regional meal. Try the risotto. Friendly staff, very reasonably priced and fresh, well prepared food. Could not ask for a better meal in Como.

This is a relatively small place right in the heart of the city. Beautiful decor with stone walls, absolutely amazing. Opens early (by Italian standards), you can go there already at 7 p.m. for dinner. The menu looked good but we picked up things off the printed meny, such as "Ossobuco milanese" and "vitello tonnato". Tipical northern Italian dishes, very... More

Central, but tucked away in a side lane. Very friendly staff, unpretentious and good wholesome food. House wines were nice, also reasonable. We came back again for a second meal!

This is not an obvious find, attached to the same building as the Stanze del Lago accommodation, but its central location, good food and rear patio for outside dining make it a good choice for above average eating. Veal in white wine, mushroom risotto, preceded by vegetable minestrone and followed by panna cotta and tiramisu was complemented by very reasonably... More
