I found this place on the web , after a long research for good food in Como in a non touristic place. I was totally blown away from the food and from the great wine list. Drink some Sfurzat a great Nebbiolo at his best out of Piemonte. The food was very good , we had two nights in Como... More

We spent 12 days traveling in Italy and ate at lots of fabulous restaurants. This was our very favorite! The enjoyment started as soon as we walked into this special place in the hills outside of Como. It is kind of like a wine cellar or farmhouse - it is a warm, charming and romantic setting. But don't be fooled... More

Take average raw material and assemble them in a fancy way to justify high price and you have the business model of the restaurant. First bad food experience in italy in one week, next time I will stick to pizza or pasta.

Wonderful restaurant showcasing local ingredients. We chose the tasting menu and it was exquisite. I'm still thinking about the delicious eggplant appetizer! Very friendly service. We took a cab from central Como and it took about 10 minutes up into the hills. Highly recommend!

Found it difficult to find, but glad we did! Staff were very friendly, the outdoor seating was delightful and the food and wine incredibly tasty! I'd recommend the rabbit ravioli...

On the edge of Como (short cab ride) up in the hills. Old, historic building and one room is a true grotto. Clientele is locals. Dishes were a bit uneven but some suberb, such as the pork filet rolled with dried plums and lard and pasta with rabbit. Fish soup plain, though. Charcuterie most generous. Well-priced wine list. Service cordial.... More

Nice restaurant serving a good selection of varied Iitalian inspired dishes and with a good wine list as well. Slightly obscure location - follow signs up hill to Al Crotto or seek local assistance as it is located away from the main road and if you weren't looking for it, you probably would miss it - but definately worth a...

One of the best most authentic meals on our trip. Great opportunity to try more rustic cuisine done with a fine dining flair. Try the horse meat salumi!!

A little bit of introduction: I have been curios about other cultures for as long as I can remember, I try to travel as much as I can and ended up living and working in China. Funnily enough, my attitude is not uncommon among Italians: I am not sure why, but I feel like some of us need to leave... More
