Passed by during day and then on back of trip advisor reviews went for dinner. Not disappointed. Friendly and helpful staff and good wine recommendation. Grilled escalope of veal beautifully cooked tender and tasty with lovely mixed boiled veg without butter or herbs. The chocolate salami is a must only 5 euros and it is chocolate heaven. Don't be put... More

V near the cathedral but with an anonymous frontage. Get there before 8.30pm (or book). We dined inside in a vaulted dining room. Good menu but also a few specials. Excellent warm hors-d'oeuvres and one of the best tiramisu ever. €124 for 3 people x 2 courses + 1 tiramisu + 1 bottle wine.

We dined in a group of 12 and the food was excellent. The owner was very attentive to our needs and explained the dishes in English for us. The first dish was a thin veal covered with a tuna paste and capers and was unbelievably amazing. Something new for me. Secondo was scallopine one of the many veal dishes. Also... More

When dining in Como it's great to have a view of the lake, or at least a piazza. This place has neither so I guess their food better be good, and it is. On a Tuesday night both their downstairs and upstairs diningrooms were full. A local recommended this place to us and told us to order the veal ossobucco.... More

My husband and I found that sharing first and second plates is the way to go. We had fabulous spaghetti carbonara, followed by a grilled veal chop. Asparagus in oil and cheese was a special of the day. Although it was the best we ever had, it was only 1 € less than the veal chop. A bit pricey considering... More

The restaurant was small and cosy and was busy when we arrived at 7.30 and was full by the time we left. The food was simple but great and all reasonably priced. We ordered the gnocchi with sage and butter and it was just so good! One of the best pasta dishes i have ever had... and I have had... More

After reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor and another site we decided to give it a try. The food was good, but Soooo little. We left hungry :( Big plates with little food. Maybe we were supossed to have a 3 course meal, but we just wanted one. Maybe next time they should think to make bigger plates for the... More

Very Italian great atmosphere. Off the tourists. The food was good but nothing really special. Prices fair enough for the quality of the food.

An excellent choice for dinner after a day on the lake or sightseeing in town. Near the Duomo. Attractively lit, charming ambience and very good value local food and wines. Enthusiastic and helpful service too. We'd certainly go back.
