We booked this restaurant based on reviews here and also because our accommodation hosts recommended it also. Small, local authentic family restaurant in a very small non-touristy Italian town around 30mins from Como. The menu is in Italian but the waiters were great and explained all in English giving us recommendations. Also honestly telling us when we were ordering too much. Rightly so, as were well and truly stuffed with the 4 dishes we ordered. It was a lovely evening. The only thing I would question was the prices, the price of the menu was super expensive for a small family run trattoria/osteria. Same, if not more expensive than some of the places in Como and other tourist towns. I expect to pay for good food, but felt that it was a little overpriced. Perhaps as so popular these days. Other than that, a perfect evening.

Based on reading comments here, we made a booking. Call back was quickly after we hung up as it was busy. Our number was a foreign number, so it was good impression to start with. I like its setting a lot, which has a lot of items in harmony and it feels Italian. The service was very friendly and the whole evening was filled with jokes and laughter. I had Parma ham to start with and the bread went with it was hollow inside so it was a great base to present the delicious ham yet not heavy with flour to fill you up. And my tagliatelle was divine with mushroom and truffle sauce.

Located in the back streets of Asso, this is a locals restaurant. No English menu, but the most friendly waiter who explains everything. Been to Venice, Pisa, Verona, Umbria, Tuscany... this was the best. Food, service and friendliness just as it should be. If you are within 20km then drive to visit.... highly recommended !

From the moment you enter this restaurant it is a delight! The atmosphere and service is second to none and the waiters make you feel like you’re a family friend.
The menu is in Italian but it is translated for you. I’m not sure exactly what the names of the dishes were but they were all excellent to the point you eat so slowly and savour every mouthful because you don’t want it to end!

We had a beef tartare, meat with fried breads to start, lamb spaghetti and prawn, porcini and truffle tagliatelle and then fruit tart and lemon gelato.

We were upset that we only found this restaurant on our last night around Como, we would happily have eaten there every night!
You do need to book though, they are obviously very popular, and rightly so.
