The dining rooms are elegant and serene with tables spaced apart for private and relaxing conversations. The menu is creative and interesting. There are tables that can view the beautiful kitchen if so desired. Service was polished and thoughtful. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening there.

Description
I TIGLI in THEORIA is in a historical building in the very heart of the city of Como next to the lake and the Dome, dating back to the mid 15th century. The restraunt I Tigli in Theoria offers menus designed to ensure an experience of high contemporary cuisine and at the same time designed to offer to the guests an unexpected path, but balanced and of quality. The wine list, with the competence and professionalism of the Sommelier, proposes a series of tastings, unique in its kind for the selection of fine wines and for the prestige of served beverages. The restaurant has four STUBE, private rooms where privacy is absolutely guaranteed, for customers who seek privacy in a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere of pathos and elegance. On the first floor there is a charming and sociable lounge bar, a pleasant atmosphere of refined elegance to spend time in complete relaxation.
