“Awesome thin-crust long style pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

The interior of this restaurant is nothing great but the quality of the pizza is excellent. The service was a little slow and the staff were not very efficient but we didn't care once we saw how big and delicious the pizza's looked. You'll be quite surprised by their size and shape if you haven't had a pizza in the Como region before but they are actually quite manageable.

“excellent pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

That place was recomende by locals and serves definitely one of the best pizza I've tried. Big thiny and oblong pizza is served on a wooden board. It is crispy and light, very good quality.
Taverna is cosy and has rather informal style. Staff is ok even though a bitt slow.
Basic but good selection of wine.
Good price.

“Fantastic pizza, don't miss it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is definitely the best pizza in Como which shouldn't be missed. I can't vouch for the rest of the menu as I do not order anything else other than pizza here. Personal recommendation is the pizza frivola.

One word of advice, don't try substituting items of pizzas. They appear to only understand addition, not subtract (i.e., they'll charge you for what you add, but don't discount for what you removed). Clearly not the best customer orient approach, but once you know the rules it's fairly straightforward.

I've never had issues with the service, as I see others have.

“HORRIBLE”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Horrible!!
I know this place since 20 years, the only good thing is the pizza, but for the rest forget it and don't go to this place, people are sooooo rude, they don't take care of your complains . . . even the owner doesn't care about you, he says "there are so many tourist, that I don't need you . . ."
