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. It was the best pizza we tasted in Como and probably one of the best I have ever tasted anywhere. They certainly have very good wine and beer to... More

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.

Homemade pizza cooked in a wood burning oven and obtained from selected ingredients out of certified organic farming but also "magrebini" (sandwiches with home-made bread cooked in wood oven according to Arabian tradition) and fresh salads. All the oven products are available with traditional dough made with organic wheat flour or with stone ground whole wheat flour and are prepared with natural yeast for slow and natural rising which gives the pizza aromatic richness and high nutritional value. Takeaway only available until 7 PM. In case of great affluence takeaway service might be suspended.
