During our stay in Milano we visited this restaurant for dinner. It's not far from the lake, near the old town. If you don't have a reservation it will be very difficult to get a table. The food was excellent and the price-ration is just...More

The food is affordable and superb. We had the classic lasagna, the cold cuts (appetizer) and an insalata with anchovies. Then we had the 2 kinds of tiramisu, apple crumble cheesecake and brownie. Best place to go in Como.

After going to Venice and Milano (and paying a visit to the best cafes/restaurants there, according to TripAdvisor) we found ourselves here, after descending the mount on funicular. And this was the best pasta with seafood, panacota and tiramisu (a proper one, unlike in Venice)....More

We were a family of 4 at lunchtime and found the food quite delicious. Ordered a salad with tuna and the paella and both were very good (the paella much better!).

Busy for a Monday lunch time which must be a good sign. Waiting staff were friendly, salad was delicious and plentiful. Over 50 choices of salad so something for everyone, all of which were huge portions, no one left hungry! Will return.

Eh, I think you need to ask the restaurant about that - I was just a customer!

Not really even from the glass room outside. It’s tucked into the harbour. Nice place though.
