Hosterietta is not the cheapest place around in Como, but worth every euro! I discovered this restaurant 8 years ago - and have been once or twice a year ever since. The waiters are friendly and welcoming, the food simply wonderful, and the selection of...More

Restaurant is located in the middle of the city, convenient to hotels. Very good food, somewhat unusual Italian dishes (such as rabbit). Gnocchi in Gorgonzola cream sauce is excellent! Prices for entrees (Secondi) range between 18 to 30 euros. One not-so-pleasant note: restaurant located on...More

Skill fully prepared local dishes. Really appreciated the gluten free pasta options available- loved the squid, tomato and zucchini sauce. Delicious! Fun to watch the people in the square. You definitely want an outdoor table.

We had a wonderful lunch. I had fish, turbot crusted with pine nuts and collars greens, delicious. Both my son and daughter had the lamb chops, amazing! The staff was great and spoke some English. We will definitely be back.

Selected this restaurant mainly because they kept a basket of porcini mushrooms at the entrance. It was a weekday, off season. Still we were surprised we were the only visitors. But the food was excellent. For people that like mushrooms definitely recommended.
