Classic salads and modern mixes with or without meat everything very delicious. The stuff speaks very good English and they even offer the salad to go.

The service is warm and nice. Salad is fresh and delicious. We also ordered soup and grilled seafood. Ending with a tiramisu. It's the best meal we had in Como. Must reserve a table, otherwise it's difficult to get a seat. 很棒的餐廳。服務好,而且不會另外收餐桌服務費。東西好吃又新鮮。很多種沙拉的選擇,我們很喜歡牛肉水果沙拉,烤蝦和花枝串很推薦。甜點都是他們自己做的,也很棒。但是一定要記得訂位。

Even we had no reservation, we got a table for an hour as we were early. Really great food and especially uncountable numbers of different salads. We will come back :)

Never have I seen such an array of salads! This is excellent food, served well and all at a very reasonable price. It's not often I go to a restaurant more than once in a single trip, but this place was an exception. If you are in Como, I highly recommend checking La Vita e Bella out!

We have been traveling in Italy for nearly three months. This is the best restaurant that we have found. All of the salads are a meal by themselves. I also had the paella which was the best I have ever had. With a half liter of wine our meal came to 57 euro. An amazing value!!

A wide variety of salads but if you want to have something else you can try the burger,paella or the beef.Everything is fresh and tastes very nice.It is the first among the reviews on Trip Advisor in Como but it is worth the place!

This place is in top 5 restaurants in Como for a reason! Food is fabulous, tasty, superb! So many salads to choose from, also other dishes are amazing. My special favorite are cakes there - carrot cake, cheesecake with blueberries or apples and cinnamon.. indulgence :) Hint - place is not that big and usually very busy - I suggest... More

We walked in without a reservation and were promptly seated. We were very lucky as you can see why they were so busy. Great food, delicious salads and service to match. All for a very reasonable price, if you are in Como make sure you have a lunch or dinner hear and make a reservation.

Our salad and pasta were amazing and quite cheap (all the pastas and salads are 7-11 euros). Portions are huge, staff was friendly. However, they don't have pizza in the menu.

Great value for the large portions of salads, and there is sure to be a salad that suits your tastebuds with the large variety. But if you are not into greens at all their pastas are also fantastic - I really liked the tortellini with lake fish which was topped with clams and a duo of tomato and pesto-based sauce... More
