Brilliant little find!

Just a few minute stroll from the centre of town this little Osteria was a splendid little find. Great pizzas and very reasonable. House red was delicious and well worth a visit!

We had dinner on a Saturday night at Osteria di Via Monti. After reading earlier reviews, we had our hotel call and make dinner reservations for 7pm. We chuckled when we arrived though because we were the only people in the restaurant at that time. By 8:15, it was almost full though. There aren’t a lot of tables, so do... More

We found that it was difficult to have a bad meal in Italy, such is the pride that the locals take in their cuisine. However, it can be difficult to find a good value meal. Thankfully, the tasting menu in Osteria di Via Monti is a very good deal. The food was very good, you get to try lots of... More

Will definitely go again next time we are in Como. It`s a great home made food restaurant filled with italian charm and pleasant surprises. We didn't look at the menu since we followed the owners lead to taste a little bit of everything in a set menu 5 courses that he created there on the spot for us for a... More

There were two of us. We had a big walk beforehand and a small lunch when we should have passed on lunch before consuming the tasting menu. It was a huge amount of food and we felt like right royal porkers when we left and had to go for another long walk to help our stomachs settle after such a... More

We liked that the restaurant was "off the path" and frequented by Italians. My husband and I both ordered pizza and were extremely delighted with the quality. But what was really unbelievable was the price. €5 for a Quattro Stagioni that I could barely finish. The waiter was helpful and the atmosphere casual and authentic. Go with a large group... More

We LOVED it. We had the tasting menu, at 25 Euros (including wine and water), a steal. The food was fantastic and never stopped coming! After some starters, we had great homemade pastas (two different kinds) and some wonderful mains. We were eventually laughing-- thinking they couldn't bring us more, and yet they did. One course was homestyle beans and... More

The food is simply delicious and no one in Como can beat the prices. We had the tasting menu - feasted on two starters, two primi piatti, two secondi piatti, desert, coffee and wine - and still cannot decide which one of the dishes was the best. Our only regret is not having come back the following night to try... More
