My wife and I ended up here after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. The food was very good as was the service. The price was on the high side but not more than expected. I had the daily specials and they were good.

This restaurant is not cheap, with a meal costing about 70 euros a head, including wine, but the quality of ingredients such as foie gras was excellent. The menu is quite limited. Staff were efficient & friendly. We sat in the outside courtyard as it was a warm evening & the evening was rather spolit by the odd decision of the owner to allow a couple to sit with their dog, which constinually scratched the floor, barked & whined throughout the meal. This should not be allowed in a restaurant at this price point.

Hi Mr. Herts Timelord,

I saw your comments regarding our dog policy, and I'm disappointed for this.

Our policy with animals is simple, in our restaurant we accepted every type of animals.

In your case unfortunately the dog close to you was very young and the owner probably don't
control him.

In any case when this situation appear we suggest to change a table in other new position.

We apologies with you.

Grazie!

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.
