The restaurant is located at a very nice piazza. Food is good, service average. But as the location is Hipp and Nice, I recommend it for lunch.

One of our favorite pizza places in Como. Superb terrace on Piazza Volta which catches a lot of sun. Pizzas are excellent and well priced. Fine and attentive service. Great place place for lunch on a sunny day.
