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

La vita é Bella is a little hidden from Como center (only 300m). But as every treasure it is hidden. Food is superb, and prices are not high (I had a lasagna for 7,5€ and my wife the pasta of the house for 8€). For dessert we had a delicious panna cotta (only 4€). Loved every bite of food, staff...

We really enjoyed eating here. Staff were friendly and helped us to navigate our way through the options despite our lack of Italian. We had ravioli filled with fish from the lake with cockles and pesto sauces as well as salad and meat dish accompanied by local beer. What was not to like? Highly recommended. We would return without hesitation... More

Salad tried a few times but was totally not good. Pasta was just normal. Twice we got the dessert we didnt ask for. Well, better to go somewhere else. I really dont understand how it can be so full all the time. If you are vegetarian, you're left with total tasteless food.

If you like salad (and even if you don't) this place has THE BEST salads in the world! They made salads from everything on the menu! Not many salads include roast beef as part of the salad! I had the Caribbean salad (twice!) and it was delicious. Honestly, this place is full every night...we had to beg to get a... More

We are local and we eat here regularly. The food is super fresh, there's enormous variety, you can eat healthily, portion sizes are big, they allow you to order half portions or take the rest home. And you can usually get away with spending €10/person! When we got our kitchen renovated we ate here every day. There's changing facilities for... More
