I have became and are a usual of this wonderful restaurant for my weekly lunches. Great Tuscany cuisine to a high standard level. I just love it after I did my shopping downtown Como. Fantastic firsts...now Pasta e Fagioli for the winter season, an excellent chianina fillet tender as the butterwith red wine sauce and tryffle on top...what an orgasm...

This ristorante was our second choice when we discovered our first choice was closed - but it quickly became apparent Ristorante Rino should have been our first choice! The restaurant is a quiet and romantic type of place situated in the small and dark cobbled backstreets of Como. The food and wine was amazing. The best pasta and portaccini mushrooms... More

I had the spaghetti bolognese, it was excellent. I let me daughter try it she thought it was the best bolognese she ever tasted. My husband had the steak filet, small size and it was cooked to perfection. Lizzi had the meat and pate dish, very good, especially the pate and then the ravioli, just OK. My son got the... More

Exquisitely prepared food, lovely and romantic decor, with flawless and very sensitive servers. Also remarkably affordable given the amazing quality of the cooking and ingredients! Vegetarian friendly. Fabulous wine list at insanely low markup. My wife and I are food-obsessed organic gardeners, seeking the very finest dining experiences for decades, in several different countries, and Ristorante Rino is as good... More

This is very small but very tasty restaurant. It is family restaurant. Menu not big, but it is really very good! Meat is perfect! Big list of vine. Bill near 100 euro per 2 person. Strongly recommended! !!! BUT!!! You should know that it is often overbooked! You should book it!!!

We didn't book but got lucky in this lovely restaurant as they had a table for 5 people. Two of us had the T bone which was excellent and the other three really enjoyed the truffle risotto. Washed down with a good Brunello and served with a friendly smile made this a our best dinner in Como so far. Price... More

This is one of the worst food experiences in a long time, huge tasteless portions. the prociutto was clearly beyond expiry date and the taste kept chasing me for half a day. we then ordered a kinf of sponge pasta with pesto, they probably mixed up the kitchen sponge and put pesto sauce on it

This is a restaurant frequented by locals in the heart of Como. Actually Tuscan cuisine. Dishes have very generous portions of black truffles, way more than you will ever get in the States. The truffle and porcini salad, pasta with truffles, and filet with truffles and red wine sauce all excellent. Good wine list with a knowledgeable host and in... More

We came across this restaurant by chance. We only had a light meal of pasta but it was excellent. Judging by the dishes that came out of the kitchen the other food was also good. Not a flash setting but homely and comfortably family restaurant. More locals than tourists.

We had asked our BnB host where to go for steak. They recommended Rino. We all had steak with sides of zucchini and chick peas. The meat was cooked to perfection, tender and tasty and the vegetables were delicious
