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 that was all. The other two were running the whole night. They work their butts off to make sure every dish is perfect. The food was out of this world. The nearest dinning experience i can math it to was eating at the premiere french restaurant of the culinary institute of america. Every single detail was perfect. We did the potato pesto lasagna....mouth watering. The tandorri duck...tender, delicous and beautifully presented. The same with the steak and truffle. It is smaller portions but the amazingness of it is well worththe price

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 menu into English for us.
We liked it so much we booked a return visit on the following Friday evening, ordering from the a la carte menu this time. I had the mushroom gnocchetti followed by tandoori duck and trusted the Maitre d' to pick accompanying wines as well as a sweet Riesling for desert. The result was one of the best meals I have enjoyed all year, everything hit the right note, the atmosphere, the delicious food and excellent wines. This place is not to be missed if you have the opportunity, the price was pleasantly good value too!

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 of bread rolls were coming out of the oven. We had the tasing menu with one having sea bass and the other a bavette steak (cooked sangue exactly as I wanted it ) plus a lovely bottle of Montepulciano. All the food was excellent, beautifully cooked and presented. Service is very professional and discrete. It should be in Paris rather than Como. I wish I visited Como more often.
