This bar/ restaurant offers simple menu with basic Italian food. We tried ravioli with ricotta/ spinach and sea food pizza. Pizza was better. Maybe because we had a perfect Ravioli day before in Bellagio.

We are very happy we ate here tonight! A family restaurant, "la mamma" in the kitchen. Nice to sit outside with the view over the Como Lake. I had the risotto, my husband the pasta vongole and our 5-year old ate penne al ragu. We all were very content. The crème brulee as desert was different from what we know,... More

We dined here having seen the positive reviews and were glad we did. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was really lovely. We shared calamari and bresaola to start and both were delicious. We followed up with the clam spaghetti (as mentioned in a previous review-amazing!) and risotto with perch fillets. I am a huge risotto fan... More

We were living in the hotel just next door and decided to try this restaurant based on the Tripadvisor reviews. With a noisy, busy road passing a meter from the tables, and the restaurant looking average, at best, we decided to just walk on.

We went on the basis of TA reviews but it was pretty average. Service was friendly but that's about all. Go for a low budget meal and keep your expectations low. There are better places though.
