I visited this restaurant early on a Tuesday night before the restaurant filled up. I was the third person seated in the restaurant (a pair had been seated before me). I ordered a small bottle of red wine, a pot of mussels, and a pizza topped with peppered bacon, spicy salami, and wurst. The mussels came out and it was... More

This restaurant is located in the Eastern part of the lakefront, though it's not properly on the lakefront itself, but in a street which is immediately back. We're used to go to this place for dinner and without a reservation and we've always got a table, but I suggest to reserve a table, especially for parties of 4 or more.... More

The place was full of people living in Como, and it was noisy, but the kind of good noisy giving you a taste of what the athmosphere of the real life in Como is. The portions are huge, and the pasta and pizzas are delicious. A must in Como for sure.

Large, spacious restaurant with lots of Italian families, which is always a good sign. Good food, quick service, even a 'craft beer' on sale. This is where Italians go. Straightforward and simple at a very acceptable price. Pizza's with a thick soft crust. We didn't try the fish, but the place is known for it and it sure looked good.

When in Como, I was looking for a restaurant on the lake bank and "fortunately" all of them had no seat available so I opted for the Carrettiere. Wow! I had one of the best meal ever. Fresh fish, great service and decent prices! Warmly recommended.

The hosts/waiters are sooo lovely, the food authentic, tasty and the portions incredibly LARGE, the atmosphere is perfect and it's a good thing the restaurant is tucked away from the promenade or it might get overcrowded, though it was full even when we went during the week. We all had different dishes, ranging from mussels to seafood pasta to pizza,... More

Spending over a week around Lake Como, I found this place to have THE BEST pasta with lobster anywhere!!! I just can't seem to get that fantastic taste out of my memory. This will be my 1st stop the next time I visit Lake Como!!!!!

We go often to this restaurant when we want a relaxing dinner, no fuss and good food. No complecated dishes in an old fashion sharming interior. Children get served in a second, so no stress for mums! Try it out, we love it!
