We got to this place thanks to a recommendation of our b&b host and Michelin guide. It's situated a five minute walk from the lake shore through the beautiful old city of Como. All the food we ordered was exceptionally good and authentic Italian cuisine. Also the price/value was good. It was a great experience, this restaurant is highly recommended... More

The meat was awesome, the service perfect. The waiter gave us 5 different kind of salt, 3 different kind of olive oil and explained us everything. This place is highly recommended, a pity I didn't stay longer in Como, I would have returned there!

L'Antica trattoria is a Northen Italian family-run restaurant with a great reputation. I had one my best steak in life in there, it was soft and juicy, just perfectly cooked on a original wood grill that gives to it an authentic flavour. The selection of salts from all over the world make it even more interesting and the suggested black... More

We ordered the Bistecca Alla Florentina... More

We visited whilst in Como, beautiful location very romantic, service was excellent , the menu was good and maybe we got it wrong but what we thought we ordered wasn't what came. Maybe something got lost in translation but I suggest if your not sure ask , I wish we had.

This restaurant is not in the tourist area but is worth finding. Our hotel recommended it to us. Atmosphere & food were excellent. The young man that served us was very professional & spoke English. Everything we ate was delicious. You will throughly enjoy your evening there.

We read the great reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. This adorable family-run restaurant is a little off the beaten path in Como, but well worth the 10 min walk outside the old town. They specialize in meats and cook it all to order in a giant fireplace in the dining area. They also have a selection of... More
