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

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

Forget the noisey places along the front in Comp and head to the back streets for this little gem. Its all good, but take an inside table as the courtyard is full of smokers, u less of course your a smoker, then its a rare treat for you to be able to smoke at the table while others eat Vitello...

The pan fried perch from the lake was fresh and flavorful, the pasta with eggplant was scumptuous, and the penne with fromage was the perfect blend of Italian cheeses. We loved our meal.

I highly recommend this restaurant. It was a short distance from the main square and from our accommodation. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was recommended by our B and B host and was full of locals. The food was scrumptious. My friend had the house speciality which was Osso Buco and I had a meal of very... More

I tried a fw courses: the special lasagne asparagus which was delicious. The mixed Italian meats, spaghetti with chilli and garlic, the prawns and also a fillet al pepe. All of which were... More

I have visited the restaurant during the lunch time (was quite full - a good sign) and after few minutes waiting got to the table. Had primi, secondi, dolce, with house wine and all was fine. Price was right. Happy to come again.

We were on a day trip to Como and we tried Ristorante Sociale for lunch. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. I had the Osso Buco with risotto Milanese and it was simply delicious. The service was excellent and there is a very good choice of wine. I would definitely be back and would recommend it to anyone... More
