Restaurant is located in the middle of the city, convenient to hotels. Very good food, somewhat unusual Italian dishes (such as rabbit). Gnocchi in Gorgonzola cream sauce is excellent! Prices for entrees (Secondi) range between 18 to 30 euros. One not-so-pleasant note: restaurant located on the Piazza where homeless approach tables peddling flowers (when waiters not looking). Very bothersome!

Skill fully prepared local dishes. Really appreciated the gluten free pasta options available- loved the squid, tomato and zucchini sauce. Delicious! Fun to watch the people in the square. You definitely want an outdoor table.

The restaurant is in the centre of Como. It is really expensive but believe me, it's worth it. The quality of the food is good and the taste is fantastic, different from the other normal restaurants. It has tables inside and outside the restaurant. The service is a bit slow but it's ok. I want there at about 1.20 pm... More

The food is excellent. Pasta is freshly made, so was the tiramisu. The service is very child friendly and responsive.

The truth is that the price is rather high, but it is in the center of Como, so I guess it is expected. We ordered risotto and tagliatelli. It was OK, but not really good. I am sure you can find many better places in Como... but we were there only one day and couldn't really keep searching...

The food was average to bad, an appetizer with aubergine is not suggested at all, too expensive for the quality of plates that the restaurant serves.

We had a wonderful lunch. I had fish, turbot crusted with pine nuts and collars greens, delicious. Both my son and daughter had the lamb chops, amazing! The staff was great and spoke some English. We will definitely be back.

Selected this restaurant mainly because they kept a basket of porcini mushrooms at the entrance. It was a weekday, off season. Still we were surprised we were the only visitors. But the food was excellent. For people that like mushrooms definitely recommended.

A wonderful restaurant in a charming square. The food and the staff were absolutely lovely and the hazelnut truffle ice cream is to for for!
