The food is excellent. Pasta is freshly made, so was the tiramisu. The service is very child friendly and responsive.

The truth is that the price is rather high, but it is in the center of Como, so I guess it is expected. We ordered risotto and tagliatelli. It was OK, but not really good. I am sure you can find many better places in Como... but we were there only one day and couldn't really keep searching...

The food was average to bad, an appetizer with aubergine is not suggested at all, too expensive for the quality of plates that the restaurant serves.

We had a wonderful lunch. I had fish, turbot crusted with pine nuts and collars greens, delicious. Both my son and daughter had the lamb chops, amazing! The staff was great and spoke some English. We will definitely be back.

When the weather is fine and sunny in Como, it's a real pleasure to sit in a terrace, specially in Piazza Volta, because those terraces in Piaza Cavour, the main Piazza looking to the Lake, are horrible, terrible food and expensive. Instead, this piazza is a couple of blocks away from Cavour and is full of excellent restaurants. Hosterietta is... More

This is a very nice Italian restaurant. We chose to eat inside because smoking is allowed in Italy if you eat outside.

Loved this restaurant for its quality (lamb chop dish was huge, well-prepared and not very expensive). The location allows a constant fresh breeze that is delightful. Waiter was friendly, efficient and helpful. My wife had 'bolognese' that was fantastic.
