From the outside the restaurant does not stick out as anything amazing but the food was top class and the series excellent. We ordered the penne pesto and gnocchi. Both were excellent. The house wine was really good and for dessert we had the Mille...More

Service TOP. Please order step by step because the plates are BIG: not easy to follow the Italian way to eat (Entry, 1st dish, Main dish, dessert) when the portions are that big. Pizzas were OK but not the top if you ask an Italian....More

Food is OK and good, depending on what you order, and there is ample selection (it is not only a pizzeria, we ate fish and milanese coteletto). Prices are good for the food range, service is decent. It tends to be very busy.

Ignore the exterior, ignore the fact that it is next to car park and on a junction, take note of the fact the locals who appear to be in the know are eating here. Then walk in and order past, risotto, or pizza and be...More

This is a local spot. It is near a bus stop that also has a car park near it. We were staying at Villa Flora and other than eating there getting to Como takes tother transportation. This place is so good we ate there twice!...More
