A very difficult task to add anything nontrivial to the existing revues. This is a traditional Italian restaurant for people like me who like traditional way of eating out. We've received exactly what we wanted. The service, the food, vino della casa - everthing was very good. I wold say ottimo! Our comlements to the chief!

We were in Como for just one night, and chose this restaurant after reading the reviews. The food was delicious, particularly my steak; Filetto di Chianna alla buttera, which was served with onions and beans. I am salivating just remembering it!

We had the Tagliolini Mantecati Al Tartufo Nero and the Il Filetto di Chianna Alla Buttera – it was fabulous! We just had to come back again the day after.

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

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
