Take average raw material and assemble them in a fancy way to justify high price and you have the business model of the restaurant. First bad food experience in italy in one week, next time I will stick to pizza or pasta.

Wonderful restaurant showcasing local ingredients. We chose the tasting menu and it was exquisite. I'm still thinking about the delicious eggplant appetizer! Very friendly service. We took a cab from central Como and it took about 10 minutes up into the hills. Highly recommend!

On the edge of Como (short cab ride) up in the hills. Old, historic building and one room is a true grotto. Clientele is locals. Dishes were a bit uneven but some suberb, such as the pork filet rolled with dried plums and lard and pasta with rabbit. Fish soup plain, though. Charcuterie most generous. Well-priced wine list.

Slightly obscure location - follow signs up hill to Al Crotto or seek local assistance as it is located away from the main road and if you weren't looking for it, you probably would miss it - but definately worth a...

One of the best most authentic meals on our trip. Great opportunity to try more rustic cuisine done with a fine dining flair. Try the horse meat salumi!!

A little bit of introduction: I have been curios about other cultures for as long as I can remember, I try to travel as much as I can and ended up living and working in China.

Very nice restaurant .... very cool and very nice . Great quality of food and wine. Every season you can find some different specialities. It's just a little hard to find it. The price is fair for the quality it offers.
