Our family lunch took forever and was not worth the wait. Bad, real bad. The waitress was constantly apologizing for the delays. The place itself was unappealing. Better to avoid .

A lovely restaurant, very good ambience, excellent service and lovely food. In the old town of Como, i.e. a very tourist place, it nonetheless resists the urge to charge tourist prices. While not inexpensive, the food and service great and the prices are very realistic....Great value and we'll be back again during our stay.More

Our hotel recommended this place (among others). I read the reviews (like here) and put it lower on the list due to the complaints regarding service. Others were closed (August) or didn't look nice, so we ended up here. Luckily. Thursday at 8:30 pm we...just entered after another couple and a third couple was already sitting there. The very charming waitress was professional but very friendly. We could see if there were 6 tables full and it was still only her, that you might have not always immediate service. But as it was, if was just right. The food was fresh and well prepared. Everyone love their dish. The service made completed the nice dinner experience. We would have come back if we had have more than 3 nights in Como.More

Service was sincere and attentive, non intrusive. Serving good, honest food. Highlight was the saffron risotto which was well balanced in taste and texture. A homey-type experience.

After an excellent morning spent touring Como, we stopped here for lunch and ended up enduring one of the worst restaurant experiences ever. The place had hardly any customers yet the pace of service was glacial. A bottle of white wine was served warm and...while we worked our way through some admittedly good scallops for starters, we could hear the table next to us complaining about the quality of the risotto, which led to a deduction in the bill. A cannelloni main personified mediocrity but the piece de resistance was the sea bass in a potato crust. By crust, you'd expect the fish to have a light potato topping; instead the poor thing was smothered in the stuff!. This completely swamped any taste the fish may have had and hilariously, the one vegetable served with this monstrosity was, of course, potato. At least that gave us a laugh as we paid the €100 bill. An awful experience.More

We have been here for over 1.5 hrs. We have gotten our appetizers. Waiting for entres! Never been to a restaurant so slow. The appetizers we're good and tasty. Looking at other reviews this is a trend. Be careful, plan for a long time at...the restaurant. We hope the entre come before breakfast.More

Small and charming restaurant off the centre of Como. Host was charming and hard working woman who managed the whole restaurant and high levels of efficiency! The food was delicious: excellent Bresaola, fabulous porcini Risotto, duck ravioli and kidneys. Conti Ducco and Antinori wines superb....Go there soon!More
