First day, we wanted to order Mussels pot, a lobster pasta, a seafood pasta and fried seafood. However, the waiter told us ordered 2 is enough because the portion is BIG. So we end up ordered Mussels pot and lobster pasta. When both arrived, there were HUGE !! I can't use BIG to describe already because sometimes people think BIG... More

Although the food was ok do not order the very poor house wine, today both me and my wife have a strong headache and it is because of the wine last night, they serve the house wine in 75cl bottle, it was white and we will never have it again. they should change it with something better quality.

If you want to eat well in Como, without spending a fortune in a place that has been around in the city since the 70's (and for a reason) look no further. The quality of the fish is good, the pizzas are exceptional, especially the Black Ones, very peculiar. Most of the recipes are typical of souther Italy, thus you... More

We went here on recommendation from our hotel clerk. It was a little tricky to find a couple streets back from the lakefront. it appeared to be full with more locals than tourists. Before being seated we had a chance to watch the pizza maker in action and that sealed our choice for dinner. They serve thin crust pizza baked... More

Tried this place last week. Portions are huge so sharing is a good idea. Fish was fresh and generally tasty but really just average. Can't see what other reviewers were raving about. Italy has a lot better to offer! Price is good particular given the huge plates of food they serve

Just 2 little streets away from the buzzy touristy lakeshore and it's mostly full and slightly overpriced restaurants you will find this nice place. From the outside it looks small and mostly like a take away pizza place but once you go inside you will see surprise after surprise. Firstly it is really spacious - room after room opens inside....
