We decided to give a try to this restaurant and this has been the worst quality I have ever had in Como! Prices are high and the food is ridiculous... I had pasta which was raw, done with 'dado' and fish that was frozen. Total taste was terrible! My husband had grigliata mista... there was also a Wudy würstel! Poor... More

We went there as a family and the food was very good with acceptable prices. The staff was very nice and supportive when we said that we didn't like a type of food and gave us free dessert in return. Overall it was a very excellent experience. And I want to thank Dominico for the excellent service.

The good, I had the mussels and it was delightful. The bad, then I had the stake tartar and it was enedible. It was just minced beef with a few capers thrown in. I don't think it was matured or seasoned. I believe they've just minced a stake and plopped it on a plate. The ugly, they clearly saw I... More

The food and the place was great, we had the special, sea food pst and the carbonara, they were both excellent. They were very busy so service was a little slow. But I would definitely recommend.

We ate in the glassed in section and enjoyed the feeling of being outside, but without the cool wind. The food was very good, and the waiters were all really good sports about our attempts to speak Italian. At the end we felt we had had a lesson in Italian with a great meal on the side.

We ate here several times during our stay in Como. We preferred sitting in the glass windowed room in front of the restaurant instead of inside the restaurant because it is air conditioned. The food and service were good. It is just next to the train station, so it is good people watching too.
