I came here with my friend in October, and we both agreed this is a great restaurant to have lunch in Como. Firstly, the taste of the dishes here is authentic and delicious.

We were so lucky to get a table walking in. REALLY enjoyed the pasta della casa. Salads also looked great but too big for another portion. Would love to visit again to try something else here.

Excellent price/quality ratio, tasty food, fast service, lots of customers. The menu has a great selection of salads, but I would really recommend to focus on appetizers and starters.

The salad consisted of a big bed of lettuce and some green leaves with the rest of ingredients on the top in small quantity as a decoration. The avocado was unriped and the vinagrette inexistent. We ask for more vinagrette and arrived 15 minutes later after we've almost finished! The waitress messed up with our order and there wasn't any... More

Great salads in a trillion varieties - all in large portions and top quality. Definitely a recommendation - try the mozzarella!

Salad! What a relief after a fairly consistent diet of pizza and pasta. We ate here twice and found the food excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Can't fault it.

Good food, not great. Wine list is average but service is good and a decent place to eat in a town that has a lot of misses!
