Como is supposed to a high-end destination for the wealthy, and the restaurant prices mostly reflect that. Vecchia Tavernola is an island of sanity in a sea of overpriced places to eat. The food ranges from average to excellent. The service is a bit shy...More

Food is OK and good, depending on what you order, and there is ample selection (it is not only a pizzeria, we ate fish and milanese coteletto). Prices are good for the food range, service is decent. It tends to be very busy.

When traveling, my husband and I always look for this kind of restaurant that offers good food not too fancy at a reasonable price with a family atmosphere and where locals go. VECCHI TAVERNOLA is one of this kind. We had one lunch and two...More
