SquareMeal Review of
It may be well into its forties, but this enduring Italian looks pretty dapper and still knows how to keep its loyal regulars satisfied. Stylish red banquettes, fresh flowers and bright white walls
festooned with old photos create a chic yet relaxed dining space, while confident, smartly turned-out staff don’t mind sharing a joke or two. The menu is marked by some intriguing regional
specialities alongside more familiar trattoria standbys: look for wild boar prosciutto and dried pears drizzled with honey, salted cod simmered with tomatoes, paprika and garlic or piccata alla
perugina (veal escalope sautéed with anchovies, capers and lemon zest topped with ham and chopped chicken livers). Como Lario also has a cosy downstairs
dining room can be hired for events and parties.
