Nice menu at reasonable prices

This has a very nice menu (no pizzas) at reasonable prices and food is well cooked and served by pleasant professional staff. Eat outside in the pretty courtyard as inside is a bit cramped and not so attractive. Have eaten a number of times here and always well pleased. Go early or book as can get... read more

Risotto and gnocchi were OK, desserts not great. More traditional restaurant than others in Como, not touristy. Long wait for the bill but friendly service.

What a find this place was. The food, the staff and the restaurant itself was absolutely top class. It has a more local feel than the usual tourist places which was a real bonus. If you are looking for a great place you can't go wrong.

We went to this restaurant following the recommendation of the Concierge of Albergo Terminus hotel, Cristina. Is like a small Trattoria, the menu is wide but always follow the house special recommendations. We weren't disappointed, at the point that we stay three days in Como and we repeated the same restaurant every night for dinner. We were with kids so... More

This restaurant with funny name is located on the back street from the Cathedral. You can seat outside in a sort of back yard or inside ( there are two floors and an elevator for people with mobility problems). We were happy of the choice, they have some traditional Lombardy dishes (The owner is from Milan) and some fish dish... More

Visited in March i found a perfect balance between price and quality. Food is very good and tasty. We had appetitizers, pizzoccheri and polenta and they were both great. Prices are ok. We paid less than 50€ (wine and service included).

We had regrets when we asked to be seated at the garden terrace, as there is no garden and the terrace looks quite rugged. Should have stayed inside as it looked really lovely. The food was nice though and the price wasn't bad at all. At least the porcini risotto was delicious.

We went here which is located on the back street from the Duomo. Great building and interior with brick ceiling. We ordered an Osso Bucco and a beef dish the server described a "Californian". They were the best non pasta meals we enjoyed during our visit to Italy. The service was very attentive which included a bottle of Langhe Nebbiolla... More

We were in Como on a Monday night and none of the places recommended by our hotel were open so we used TA to pick this place. We didn't have a reservation but we were slotted in quickly. We ate outside in a nice courtyard but the area is fully enclosed - there is no view. It was also full... More
