“Best Pizza in Como!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

An established family owned pizzeria and trattoria in San Martino in Como that is very popular with the local residents. The fruitti di mare pizza and tonno e cipolla pizza taste wonderful. If you prefer not have pizza there is a good choice of other dishes like pasta and salads. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The venue is spotlessly clean and bright. I recommend Benito's.

“A very good pizza in como, although hard to find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2011

I've been to Benito because a friend of mine suggested it, so we tried it.
Finding the place was not easy, because it's not exactly in downtown Como.
Besides this little problem, we were happy. The pizza was good, very carefully prepared, well cooked and fresh ingredients, and the price is right as well.
Waiters are a little bit slow, mostly because they stop to talk to people, but it's really not a big deal!

“Best Pizza in Como--maybe the world--unappealing atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2010

I can't imagine a tourist would go here, but it is the best pizza (and pasta for that matter) that you're likely to taste. Benito is a Napoletano who moved to Como when he was 20 and 50 years later he's still in Como making pizza. The crust, sauce, cheese are simply the best. Benito knows just how much sauce, cheese and toppings to put on a pizza and cooks it to perfection. Also try the pasta a pomodoro to understand that this family knows how to cook. While here you'll meet Benito, his lovely wife and son. The only drawback is that the atmosphere is ugly. It's perfectly clean, but there is zero charm inside. There's a good pizzeria just around the corner called Ermitage da Arturo which is very charming but I find myself going back to Benito because my mouth screams with delight every time I eat his pizza.
