Stopped in for a bite and spend some time with the locals. Everyone is very friendly when they hear English spoken. They like to talk about USA and it was almost election day and they had lots of government questions. This restaurant was probably the most friendly of all during our trip throughout the country. The pizza we had was... More

Nice food in a good price Very nice indoor ambience also When I'm in Como I always wanna comeback to this resto, since the food is very nice. They close on Tuesday And better to make reservation since normally it is quite full

We felt like we had stumbled on a local secret. Somehow with every course, every one of us had food envy for each other's plates. We regretted not coming back here a second night.

This restaurant is just few meters from the Duomo of Como. The place is nice, small and cozy. Staff was really friendly and service was excellent. Food was also really good with good selections!

We stayed at the palace hotel and looked for a place to have dinner. The front desk suggested Sociale and we were very impressed. The previous night visited the one star Michelin restaurant near by and this place was 1/3 the price and just as good. Granted the Michelin restaurant had great service but this place was very good. The... More

The service is professional but not too friendly. The food has just been average: the meat (grilled veal paillard and pan fried veal liver) of ordinary quality and the side dish (vegies out of the steamer) luke warm and like in good old England years ago: no taste at all. The wine by the glass has been of rather poor... More

If you have the opportunity to eat here- Do it. We had such a great meal here. We walked in with no reservations but they seated us anyway. We went to a room upstairs that was empty but filled up quickly. They have a beautiful fireplace in the room. We had wine, pasta, wine, veal and more wine. It was... More

We found this restaurant after reading reviews on here and we weren't disappointed! Close to the Duomo the restaurant was a fantastic find. Menu was full of classic Italian dishes and if it hadn't been our last night we probably would have gone back as I was totally spoilt for choice including quite a few daily specials. Antipasti - fantastic... More
