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.

I was walking in the historic center of Como, searching for a restaurant with a view on the lake, when I bumped into this restaurant. Even though the place has no view on the lake (which is just few steps ahead) the scenario is simply delightful: the restaurant is located in an ancient building with a pictoresque courtyard, which naturally attracted me to walk in. Care is taken of every detail, and the place is new and clean. The cuisine is sophisticated, and the service is excellent (just a bit slow, perhaps: but the whole atmosphere is deliberately meant to be relaxed): I was served by a young lady (don't know the name, but the father is from Sicily) who was extremely passionate in explaining the history behind the dishes and their ingredients: unexpectedly, this lunch became much more than eating, a real 'experience'. Perfect for amateurs.

We just stopped in Como while on our way to Milan. We happened upon this gem of a restaurant. The courtyard was a respite from the bustle of Como. Our waitress was awesome. The meal started with a delightful amuse bouche. The tuna tartar appetizer was wonderful, as was the lobster pasta and chicken main course. The apple cake was wonderful too.
