Salad Place
“"For something a little different, head to this congenial, easy-going spot near Como's waterfront. Famed far and wide for bountiful, creatively topped salads, La Vita also serves up good pastas, grilled meats and seafood, and a fine paella. The small space (and glassed-in terrace in front) fills up nightly, so it's best to reserve a table in advance.”

Café
“Torno is probably one of the prettiest towns at Lake Como and the square at the small harbour is all you picture Italy to be. On the square you will find a great bar terrace perfect for a simple and reasonably priced aperitivo, while sinking in the lake views and the coming/going of the ferryboat. ”
