Here you will find the best tagliolini with porcini mushroom you have ever eaten! Monica and her mom are incredible hosts and they will really make you feel like at home.

Wandering down the back streets of Como and found this lovely trattoria. We had a fab three course meal with good wine. Great home style italian cooking.

Very sorry that I didn't read the reviews before entering in. All what is said here in trip advisor is true. Very very small portions, very salty. Sad to spend my last night in Como in this place

We passed this little gem of a restaurant several times over the past few days and decided to give it a try this evening. We overheard from the table beside us that it is run by 3 generations - the grandmother, mother and granddaughter. The atmosphere was perfect- beautiful, personal, warm- you were treated like family- and then came the... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant after the one we wanted to visit was closed and I have to say I'm glad we did. We ordered the bruschetta which was delicious - so simple and fresh. I had the mushroom pasta which was a special for the day I believe and again so tasty!!! My partner chose the pumpkin soup which... More

I normally plan each and every retaurant on a trip. Luckily we stumbled upon this cozy retaurant one night. It was so good, we came back the next night. Mostly locals eat here and no wonder. It had an excellent pasta dish with REAL porcini mushrooms (not thiose yellow ones that merely pass). The Vitello Al Tonno was better than... More

A quiet smallish place with an attractive decor. The food (mushroom salad, lake trout) was excellent and the service attentive. The wine selection was good though by-the-glass was limited. The clientele appeared to be all local. It is in the medieval part of Como and not easy to find, but well worth the effort. Knowledge of Italian helps but is... More

I have been coming to Gesumin with my husband for years, as has much of our family. This is a small place that specializes in a few really excellent dishes (ie the porcini dishes when they are in season), and very much has a local feel in terms of the type of food served, how it's priced, and how the...

During our week in Como, we ate at this trattoria twice. The food was well-prepared and a good value. Our family of five all enjoyed their dishes, but most especially the lasagna and gnocchi with gorgonzola. The rabbit I had the second night was a pretty skinny bunny, but otherwise the portion size was perfect for us.
