“A clean well lighted place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Not cheap but classic dishes beautifully prepared and served by an enthusiastic couple who enjoy sharing their views on the food. Classic cocktails also served and a wine list which offers some treats and some hefty bills! The interior of the restaurant is comfortable and well lit; in summer the restaurant moves outdoors to the Piazza Volta where one can watch the world go by and be watched!

“One of my favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

In the summer, they have outdoor seating too. This winter, it was the warmest, coziest spot. Food is good. Interesting crowd - mostly Italian. Nice wine list.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2011

We ate in the square not the restaurant. There were four of us and we asked for a salad to share to start and they provided three separate salads which were excellent. Only complaint is that main course was a little dry but certainly value for money and in square is a greT locatiob

“Great atmosphere, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2010

We sat in the square outside, not the reaturant itself. Great for people and dog watching. You do get bothered a bit by hawkers trying to flog tacky gifts, just ignore them.
The food was nothing special and the service was inattentive at times. They could have made so much more money if they'd bothered checking if we'd run out of wine more often. We didn't have a bad meal, it wasn't anything special. It was just nice to sit outside in September on a warm evening and enjoy watching the night life of Como.
