“Excellent pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

We found this restaurant located in the old town by chance as we wandered Como one evening and ended up having the best pizza we have had on our trips to Italy.

The restaurant is very nicely decorated in the 'smart modern furnishings in an historic building' aesthetic, and from our evening visit and again a few days later for lunch, a popular place with locals. The place as a nice ambiance however the staff were not particular friendly or helpful on our second visit, however everyone has an off day so give them the benefit of the doubt on that and from our experience their first visit.

The side salads with dips were a lovely find and perfect accompaniment to our delicious pizzas.
Prices were very good and we would recommend and eat here again. We noted also they have a takeaway service

“Excellent, local place in the town of Como”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

what a great find, I wondered back from the water, took a turn and came across this restaurant. It was a great find, all local people and the freshest food. It was a little expensive since I had no one to share all the food with, but I felt it was worth the money. good size portions.

“Beautiful setting, extensive card”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

The interior is very nice and modern. The upstairs seating area is very nicely done, with light and glass elements in the floor. The service is usually very good, but it can take some time when the restaurant is packed.
The menu is very extensive, lots of entrees, pasta, meat (lots of different "Schnitzel" versions), pizza, etc. Food is very good and the prices very affordable.

“A hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011 via mobile

We just stumbled upon this one, attracted by the wood fired pizza oven in full swing and lots of people. Always a good sign. Food good quality, service great, excellent value for money. They have a fantastic down stairs dining room so try that instead of alfresco in the nearby piazza. We had a couple of entrees and then shared the seafood soup with crust bread. Couldn't finish it even though it tasted superb. Highly recommended if you can find it. Watch for the fruit and veggies in the window!

“Very nice pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2011 via mobile

I tried the "Pizza Bianca" with pears & gorgonzola and found that both the pizza dough and the topping were excellent.
The 3 types of pinzimonio we ordered for starters were interesting, however the celery needed to be cleaned a much better.
Average dessert (profiteroles) - shame!
It's marketed as a place for meat, but there are plenty of choices for
Vegetarians too.
Good service.
