Our first impression was good but during dinner we got more and more the feeling there where too much different tastes put together. Also the connecting wine tasted good with the food but as wine itself it was not nice to drink.

Fantastic contemporary Italian fusion restaurant (if that even exists) in a sleek setting. We went for lunch and had the five course tasting menu and I really find it difficult to pick a favourite. The ingredients were fresh and the dishes imaginative. The service was also excellent. The unpretentiousness of the setting highlights the star of the show, the food!... More

World class dinner. Market Place is a shining star and a stand out in the very underwhelming, boring and dated dining scene of Como area. Market Place has minimalistic decor, very friendly professional service, and extremely creative & brilliantly executed menu. The restaurant would have been a hit anywhere in the world.

Being Italian born and part of a family of cooks and bartender, I am used to good food. Here I could get without any doubt one of the best meal I ever had in a restaurant. You'll need to try.

Fantastic restaurant. We were very impressed by the good food, nice presentation and attentive service. We are looking forward to be back for dinner soon. Great starters and main courses. And good selection of wine - also by the glass. You need to book a table for dinner one week in advance!

Good dishes (ravioli softly exploding on your mouth, was a must), very well balanced. Nice place (only some lights were too white).

There are two tasting menus, Classic (euro50, 5 courses) and Gourmet(euro70, 6 courses), which my wife and I ordered respectively. We added wine pairing to the classic tasting menu (additional euro20 for 4 glasses) and they are mainly white. I wouldn't recommend the pairing as they didn't go too well with the dishes. The photos I posted here are from... More

Just great & tasty flavours! It's not in the center but worth the walk. Area not very nice but the food is outstanding for the cost. Make a reservation though as it's small place.

We found this little restaurant by accident. It's not in the pretty old town of Como or near the lake, where most tourists go, but still within walking distance. As we didn't have a reservation and the tables were already booked on a Friday night, we were placed at the bar, which was ok for us. We could watch the... More

With a classic 5 course taster menu at €50 per head and wine €30 a bottle I was expecting great things. I thought 3/5 meals were stunning but 2 fell short. There was no atmosphere or personality to the restaurant. It was very much 'in and out'. It was a bit clinical and cold. The waiting staff were polite and... More
