Good food, but get seated inside

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

This is a restaurant that's located behind the landmark Palace Hotel. The food is very reasonably priced and the service is very friendly. Four of us shared a few dishes which totaled about 110 euros.

Excellent location, between the duomo and the lake. Good setting inside, less so the patio. Most of the diners were americans or germans. The food is a traditional italian and the menu has a large variety of traditional pastas and veals. It was good but unremarkable. All the fish offering, including the lake fish, was frozen. Great wine list, with... More

The Ristorante Sociale was recommended to us by our hotel when we asked for something typical of the region. We were glad we found it (usually restaurants close to things like the Duomo are not that good, it seems, but this breaks that rule). We had a great bottle of Nebbolio wine with our pasta and veal scallopini primavera. The... More

Ristorante Sociale was recommended to us by locals, and according to several other North American diners there that night, it was recommended quite frequently. The menu was fairly expansive for a small-ish restaurant, so there is certainly something to suit a variety of tastes and price points. The restaurant decor is charming and the multi-language "presence" was notable and makes... More
