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.

“Good food but tourists be aware..!!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

It was a very nice restaurant just next to our hotel.we went twice to have dinner in our four days stay in como.Food was top class and good value for money.But the waiters pushed us to order more food than we actually needed the first day.wasted a whole lot of food.On the second day we ordered less food but the waiter seemed not too happy.And yes there is a cover charge 2:50 euro pp.Then there was a mistake in the bill.They added coffee which we never ordered.However they did change it.

“Superb food, great location & a very attentive manager!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

This was my first trip to como with friends and family and we were 7 in total who had come together from the UK, Africa & Switzerland. This restaurant had a lovely feel about it with excellent food choices and good value for money!!
We felt the service was good overall, however our waiter seemed to rush us a little and didn't recommend any wines or specialty dishes.
The manager however, was very attentive and pleasant and was always on hand to see if his guests needed anything.
We would definitely recommend this place, especially the dining al fresco!!

“Good choice in Como”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This was a fairly random choice of venue for lunch for us. The menu initially brought fears of frozen heated pasta (we had similar experiences elsewhere in Italy near major landmarks - and Pepe Nero is around the corner from Como Cathedral), but everything was fresh. Pasta ai funghi got especial high marks, and panna cotta was deemed one of the best we ever had. The service was uneven, but acceptable.
