Description: Pepe Nero is located in the heart of the city of Como, just a few steps from the lake and the Cathedral.Comfort, friendliness, speed and quality. The restaurant has a comfortable and refined trendy, glamorous space ideal for lunch breaks, business meetings and dinners with friends. A wide range of dishes made of meat or fish with excellent grilled specialities. A wide selection of pizzas and focaccia cooked fragrant strictly in the oven wood. You can accompany the dishes by choosing from our highly selected list of the best Italian and French wines. Black Pepper is a meeting of sensations and flavors, where the authentic tradition lives every day in keeping with the research and experimentation.

A tourist trap. Not that great food for relatively high prices. Crowded restaurant for no good reason.
We didn't come back.

“Don't do it.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Tourist trap. Food was terrible. Waiter started with charm and flare. This ended VERY ubruptly when he realized we were not going to be a big spend. He quickly became cold, rude and disinterested. Do yourself a favour and keep walking.

“Ended up eating here just about everynight, it was so good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

I came to Como with my parents last weekend. I was looking forward to having brilliant italian food. Unfortunately the menus of many places we came across walking through the town, weren't brilliant., and we never ended up having very nice lunches. We happened upon this gem,which is only a few minutes walk from the shore line, on our second night. We ended up going there four nights ina row, it was so brilliant. The staff were incredibly friendly and professional (who must have thought us very strange when we kept coming back), the food was amazing. The prices, we thought, were reasonable and the inside of the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. The outside is good, especially on the warmer nights, but it is unfortunate about the state of the building across the way. It didnt affect our enjoyment at all though.

One of the best restaurants i have ever been too! Our thanks all the staff!

“Nice, quaint and fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

I visited Como with my mother last weekend. When it started to rain, we entered this restaurant on a good luck basis. We were lucky, as it turned out, because we had a lovely dinner here. Nice atmosphere, extensive menu and great quality topped off with very kind service. We would certainly go back on a next visit.

“not bad but ....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

The service is ok. The food is decent but nothing really special. They have a big terrace but surroundings aren't very nice. Not really a bad dinner but nothing to remember.
