Description: Homemade pizza cooked in a wood burning oven but also fresh salads served with homemade bread, sandwiches, handicraft and furnishing from Morocco. All this is Cardamomo where the sensitivity of the two owners toward both a wholesome nourishment and the care for the environment and the exponential increase of food intolerance have driven to further improve the quality of the products by making an important choice in favour of organic ingredients.

Probably the best pizza that I have ever eaten. They even took the liberty to split the two pizzas we ordered onto two plates. Loved this place - well worth seeking it out.

Cardomomo can be found close to Como Nord Borghi railway station and is a little away from the tourist areas of Como. The food is first class and the service excellent. We had two meals there within a week as we used Como as a base and all four pizzas were top notch. My wife had one of the "special"... More

The atmosphere is nice with a new morocco style. Is immediately possible feel staff's courtesy. Pizza's quality is good and I suggest to try the artigianal dessert, it's also interesting read the story and passion of the owners. It's not so big, for many people is better book before. The quality price is good. High reccomended.

It's worth hunting out this hidden gem, full of locals. A wonderful atmosphere and great ethics around food. Sit outside in the garden if you can, fully covered for the typical summer evening storms. Care has gone into all the details of your meal and surroundings.

We went to this restaurant the last day of our holiday. The choice range is very large and the pizzas are really delicious ! They also have a large choice of local beers (which are very tasty). Really great value for money ! I highly recommend this place if you want to eat a good pizza !

We tried this pizzeria due to the very good ratings on tripadvisor. It is a bit far away from the center, but right next to the train station "Como Borghi" so if you have come to Como via train you don't have to walk all the way back... The place opens at 18.30 h and we were one of the... More
