This restaurant is near Como Nord Borghi rail station and therefore outside the old town. It is worth the effort to track this place down as the pizzas are absolutely superb.

This place is great if staying nearby. We stayed at the Hotel Como down The street. Pizza can't get any better. Not much to say other than plenty of choices and fantastic pizza. You won't be let down. Give this place a shot. We gave to 4/5 because our drink order was never refilled and wait for food was way... More

Pizza is really good here. Also some alternative pizza's with pesto of pitachio's etc. Chocolat dessert was well made as well. that is always a good sign for a restaurant. This is a really local restaurant. My guess is that most people come from maximus 3 blocks away. We will certainly go back here.

Probably the best pizza that I have ever eaten. They even took the liberty to split the two pizzas we ordered onto two plates. Loved this place - well worth seeking it out.

Homemade pizza cooked in a wood burning oven but also fresh salads served with homemade bread, sandwiches and traditional moroccan cuisine (available only for takeaway on reservation).
All this is Cardamomo where the sensitivity of the two owners toward both a wholesome nourishment and the care for the environment and the exponential increase of food intolerance have driven to further improve the quality of the products by making an important choice in favour of organic ingredients.
