We had lunch at Natta cafe based on the trip advisor rating and as we were looking for a nice meal in central Como which was not too expensive. We were very impressed with the food here and my wife said it was the best spaghetti carbonara she ever had and she used to travel to Italy often for work.... More

Very nice cafe. Everything was OK. We got our meal quite fast, and it was very tasty. Only one minor thing: the portions could be a little bit bigger. But very good atmosphere. Everyone in the restaurant speaks very good English.

Imagine two different plates of pasta overcooked. I hope you won't be served too quick as it may mean that orders are maybe not made freshly. The music was good, though!

I will never get tired to explain that "pasta fresca all'uovo" is softer than industrial pasta and it requires half of the industrial pasta cooking time. We serve a kind of pasta plates (the most are creamy) that need a soft pasta to tie better with sauces. "Pasta all'uovo" al dente is just raw pasta. We are here trying to... More

A lovely choice which is affordable but at the same times makes you feel like you are dining in a upper class restaurant. To be fair, we had a late lunch and decided to eat a light meal here. The bruschetta was delicious, the pastas were great - lasagna was the best we had. Lots of choice from the menu... More

A simple little place with great little atmosphere. Very welcoming staff. We kept it simple. Wine and beer. Perfect. Bruschetta and cold plate also great. Pasta special of the day and piadini really hit the spot. Mouth tingling with taste. Reasonable also. I would definitely go back.

We visited this restaurant in the evening after coming back to Como from Belaggio following a recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide. We have to say we were not disappointed as the pasta we ordered was delicious and quick to arrive to our table. The staff are brilliant, very friendly and welcoming and offered great recommendations when I was torn... More

This was actually a secondary location due to another restaurant being closed; however, we had the Delizioso (Turkey) Wrap and Mammamia Wrap with a Fromaggai plater which were ALL fantastic! We really enjoyed our whole meal. I write this as we wait for a Chocolate Salami dessert with Cappuccinos! Made for a great light but tasty meal!

First time at Natta despite living in Como for over a year. I should have visited earlier! Great service, very well designed and appointed interior. Food was excellent.

Natta Cafe is everything the reviewers said. Romantic atmosphere (sit upstairs on narrow balcony if possible), and great food. The cream cheese and pear bruschetta is fabulous. Also like the lasagna and the chocolate "salami". After a month touring Italy, this was our last night before we head for the Milan airport. A fitting end to a great vacation.
