My husband and i and our two adult children visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago on the strength of previous reviews and were not disappointed. The service is fabulous, and the staff are enthusiastic and helpful. We had the 5 Course degustation menu, which was incredibly good value! We are from Melbourne where we have eaten at what... More

When my family and I took our first step into the restaurant, I realized how fancy our dining would be! We were welcomed by a wonderful host who had a truly elegant manner. We had a 5-course tasting menu, which was marvelous and plentiful. The courses were unique in various styles. The price was very reasonable. The bread, I can't... More

We went to this restaurant on our last night in Como. Myself and my partner are from Melbourne, so are spoilt for food, and we've been looking up and enjoying all the best places to eat across Europe. After being rather disappointed with the food thus far in Como, we were absolutely blown away by the market place! The 5... More

My husband and I just returned from a dinner at The Market Place. We had the 5 course tasting menu and it was fabulous and plentiful. Traditional Italian ingrediants were used to create modern innovative original delicious dishes. Our waiter was extremely helpful. As the menu is only in Italian, he made sure we understood what was being offered. He... More

We went to Market Place on our last night in Como and really felt that we'd saved the best for last. Plumping for the €35 five-course menu - with matched wines at an additional €15 - we were treated to some fantastic and inventive cooking. The potato and leek mini lasagne was a real highlight, and both the fish and... More

We dropped in without a reservation but were lucky as it was a Wednesday and they had a spare table for two. Atmosphere was nice and from some tables you could see into the kitchen and watch the guys working in the kitchen creating some visually stunning dishes in a very modern style.. We opted for the 5 course, 35... More

Follow all of the advice and definitely have dinner here if you are in Como. We went late without a reservation but the friendly staff made room for us and I'm so grateful! Both of us had the 50 Euros tasting menu and it was an amazing value-- 5 delicious, inventive courses paired with 4 wines from all over the... More

We ate at Market Place last week and although we generally don't like "fixed price" menus, MP was exceptional. The food was prepared well, presented well and explained well. The meal was 35 euros per person, 50 if you include wine flights. Wine is cheap in Italy so you can't go wrong either way - using their flights or buying... More

On a recent trip to Como a local bar recommended The Market Place Restaurant and it was so good we ate there on two evenings. I recommend you book as whilst it was late when we arrived on the first evening the restaurant was full. The front of house staff conferred with the Maitre d and offered us a spot... More
