Passed by for aperitivi, had one alcoholic, one non-alcoholic, both based on red berries. The drinks came with a nice selection of little bites like cheese, ham and bread. Good service, in the central square opposite the boat terminal.

A sidewalk cafe right on the square in Como. Reasonable prices, GREAT food, wonderful view of the lake all add up to a wonderful dining experience! Their pizza is great, their pasta divine, and the Amerena cherry coppa is out of this world.

I would have been pleased to say something about the food but the service was so horrible that I don't even want to write about something else. We didn't have a "buongiorno, grazie (even when we paid) not even a goodbye. DON'T GO, there are...More

We were looking for a coffe so we sat down. We told the waiter straight away, that we just want coffee... Their reaction was clear. Ignorance, and they seemed to hope we will leave soon. At the end we paid 10€ for three coffee and...More
