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.

When the weather is fine and sunny in Como, it's a real pleasure to sit in a terrace, specially in Piazza Volta, because those terraces in Piaza Cavour, the main Piazza looking to the Lake, are horrible, terrible food and expensive. Instead, this piazza is a couple of blocks away from Cavour and is full of excellent restaurants. Hosterietta is... More

This is a very nice Italian restaurant. We chose to eat inside because smoking is allowed in Italy if you eat outside. However, it is a very nice outside also, The menu had plenty of good choices and we shared an appetizer salad and we both had an excellent pasta dish with zucchini as well as a reasonably priced and...

Loved this restaurant for its quality (lamb chop dish was huge, well-prepared and not very expensive). The location allows a constant fresh breeze that is delightful. Waiter was friendly, efficient and helpful. My wife had 'bolognese' that was fantastic.

The mushroom season just started and we enjoyed some grilled Porcini and salad. Food was very tasty, staff very friendly and it was fun watching the passersby.

Very pleasant terrace giving on the Volta Piazza in Como. Great menu if you like fish, sea food, mushrooms and truffle. Antipasti named : L'antipasto di peace Hosterietta was creative, excellent and recommended, wine was delicious and reasonably priced. Tiramisu to die for! Waiter were very sympathetic and efficient.

I visited Hosterietta with my family. Place was charming. Staff was friendly. However, food was huge disappointment. Meet was tough. Side orders came late. There was no taste in the food. On the other hand, prices were high. So far the worst restaurant in our trip😠.

Sitting on the piazza at Summer Solstice was lovey as we watched the gatherings, children playing and the other comings and goings of the evening. The menu is large and innovative. We tried one of the Black Truffle dishes as a treat and it was worth the splurge. Every meal we observed looked appetizing. Instead of assigned tables, which ever... More
