We ate in Rome, Florence, Venice and Lake Como. This is the best overall meal we had, the food was incredible. Once the restaurant became busy the service was a little slow since there was only two people on the floor. But they were very nice. The portions are on the small side but this place is a must.

This a small place but boy do they know what they are doing, the 3 staff run the floor effortlessly! The maitre d was so passionate and knowledgeable about all of the food and wine and took the time to explain to us in English what every dish was. The food was amazing as was the wine both for 50...

My wife and i went here the other night. We didnt have a reservation so we had to sit atthe bar. This was no problem. Its a small dining room run by 1 waiter, 1 host and a girl who didnt seem like she was doing anything. Every so often she took a step to her left or right but... More

Very good restaurant , nice atmosphere , good food, good wine selection and reasonable prices. Worth trying. There is not a lot of new places in Como, so a good newcomer is welcome.

We discovered the Market Place on our second night in Como. We opted for the degustation and were not disappointed. Each dish was a tribute to the hard working kitchen staff (who you can see through a glass door) and the wines were paired just right. The staff were friendly and took the time to translate each item on the... More

We booked by email a couple of days in advance for 7pm on saturday on the basis of Tripadviser reviews and had probably the best meal we have ever had in Italy. It is real fine dining without fuss at a very reasonable price of about 50 euros a head including wine. We arrived just as the 4 different types... More

If you've had an extraordinary experience they say you should never go back in case it doesn't live up. But having enjoyed the best food we've ever tasted during 2 trips to The Market Place last year, this year's visit to Como wouldn't have been complete without sampling (twice!) our favourite restaurant. Still beautifully rustic chic styled, with a cosy... More

I had read a lot about this restaurant so when I arrived with my wife for a romantic birthday dinner, I had high expectations. These were surpassed as the meal and experience was one of the best I have had. We chose the tasting menu with the accompanying wine. Our waiter was courteous, warm and friendly and his knowledge of... More

A must do in Como. Dont want to say much and spoil the surprise that awaits you. After reading reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to go for the degustation menu.. and boy were we surprised. My husband and I both thought that the first 3 courses were the best food we ve had! The last 2 were good too but... More
