“Underwhelming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

Went here on the basis of having rad good review, but was distinctly underwhelmed. I was offered the set lunch menu,which was very limited, and opted for a pasta and ragu first course followed by melon and proscutto. Both were nice enough, but nothing special.

“Authentic!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

This seemed a very authentic place. There was no English spoken which was fine. Unfortunately we were the only table in until much later which pulled down the atmosphere. We did not order a starter but were given fresh rolls with a whole array of flavoured oils which was very enjoyable. The food cane in a strage order (to us ) and no vegetables included with main course which again was quite typical. The tiramisu dessert was frozen when we would have preferred freshly made.

“Best meal in Como!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2011

My husband and I stayed in Como for five days in September for the Italian Grand Prix. We had heard about this restaurant from other reviews on TripAdvisor (it was ranked #2 at the time). We arrived at 12:30 for lunch and the server/host was just opening the place. He spoke great english and was very helpful. The menu had several creative dishes along with some traditional Italian favorites. I had a brie, apple, and thyme salad to start and then the BEST red wine risotto for my second course. My husband ordered a fish dish and was surprised when it arrived - the fish was sliced into thin pieces and served in a mound - it looked like cabbage or some kind of salad. He also loved the gnocchi, it was light, airy, and had an asparagus cream sauce.
The atmosphere was great, I loved the ceilings and the decor. The locals also love this place, they just walked in straight to the back and dined together. The server read off a list of daily specials that we didn't know about (disadvantage of not speaking fluent Italian).
We ate at several restaurants while in Como, Angela was the best!

“Authentic italian cuisine, great food, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2011

After a day trip from Zürich to Milan, we wanted to have dinner in Como before heading home. TdA is a snug little restaurant with a charming team. Due to off season, we were the only guests and therefore catered with great attention. The serve the classical antipasti, first course (primo piatti), second course (secundo piatti), dessert (dolci) menu and all of our dishes were exquisitely delicious!! Go there!!!
