I come here for dinner many times because the Lambster spaghetti and seafood are very fresh and delicious. The lastest I went there, I ordered different food which is risoto with very high quality Sicilian sausage and goat cheese, it was very flavourful and they put many sausages and cheese in my dish not like general the others only can...

Maybe the wrong restaurant for me because I can't eat seafood. The pizza and pasta was just fine but the seafood portions that came to other tables looked very good.

Partner and I really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. Service was wonderful and as was the food. We had the lobster pasta and its huge! We shared and even then we couldn't finish it! Delicious seafood dishes. Less touristy than restaurants along the water. Definitely worth going to when you're visiting Como.

Very fresh and delicious seafood. Not very easy to find. Many foreigners but we would still go there next time to enjoy the seafood and the pizza.

This place is just behind the main waterfront restaurants. You simply must get the lobster spaghetti and the sea food platter. As everyone mentions, the portions are unbelievably large so go hungry - very hungry. Quite a busy, family feel so not the one if you're after heightened romance but a lovely cosy atmosphere. It's a MUST if you're staying... More

The restaurant itself was a nice balance of traditional and homely. Now the food.... Following advice re portion sizes we stuck to main courses only. We could have shared the... More

Unbelievably tasty Sacilian food, huge portions at reasonable prices. Pizzas are delicious and the set fish and meat menus are just wow. It's a little bit hidden off the main streets of Como but take the time to find it. I promise you won't regret it!
