“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This a small place but boy do they know what they are doing, the 3 staff run the floor effortlessly! The maitre d was so passionate and knowledgeable about all of the food and wine and took the time to explain to us in English what every dish was. The food was amazing as was the wine both for 50 euro - in england you would pay 3 times more. If i return to Como i will most certainley be back.

“Tied for best dinner ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

My wife and i went here the other night. We didnt have a reservation so we had to sit atthe bar. This was no problem. Its a small dining room run by 1 waiter, 1 host and a girl who didnt seem like she was doing anything. Every so often she took a step to her left or right but that was all. The other two were running the whole night. They work their butts off to make sure every dish is perfect. The food was out of this world. The nearest dinning experience i can math it to was eating at the premiere french restaurant of the culinary institute of america. Every single detail was perfect. We did the potato pesto lasagna....mouth watering. The tandorri duck...tender, delicous and beautifully presented. The same with the steak and truffle. It is smaller portions but the amazingness of it is well worththe price

“Nice discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Very good restaurant , nice atmosphere , good food, good wine selection and reasonable prices. Worth trying. There is not a lot of new places in Como, so a good newcomer is welcome.

“Fantastic dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We discovered the Market Place on our second night in Como. We opted for the degustation and were not disappointed. Each dish was a tribute to the hard working kitchen staff (who you can see through a glass door) and the wines were paired just right. The staff were friendly and took the time to translate each item on the menu into English for us.
We liked it so much we booked a return visit on the following Friday evening, ordering from the a la carte menu this time. I had the mushroom gnocchetti followed by tandoori duck and trusted the Maitre d' to pick accompanying wines as well as a sweet Riesling for desert. The result was one of the best meals I have enjoyed all year, everything hit the right note, the atmosphere, the delicious food and excellent wines. This place is not to be missed if you have the opportunity, the price was pleasantly good value too!
