Fodor's Review

This intimate restaurant just outside Como's historic center serves up full-flavored modern Italian food in interesting combinations—and its reasonably priced five- or six-course tasting menus, with wine pairings if you'd like, may be the best deal in town. Although the decor is on the sparse side, you'll be spending your time focusing on the well-presented dishes; the young, helpful servers take time to describe each course. The playful seasonal menu may include red shrimp tartare with avocado and fried squid, eggplant ravioli with tomato coulis and Parmesan mousse, or pork loin with roasted pepper cream, spinach, and endive. The place is popular with tourists and locals alike, so make a reservation to ensure you get a table.
