Como grazing :: {Italy la dolce vita}

The pleasure of food and wine was a part of my time in Como, and here are my gourmet discoveries in the old part of town, within the walled city.

Caffè Pane e Tulipani {or as locals call it cafè fleur} was my favourite!

A “coffee of the artists” was born from a flower shop

and is a delightful place for a coffee or lunch and at night it is a popular bar.

Softly fragrant with from the flowers, the  french decor features beautifully displayed collections

of old tin watering cans, glass jars and large wicker baskets.

 My fungi & truffle lasagna was deliciouso.

Verde Salvia :: Ristorante Vegetariano

After a long day in Milano, I returned to Como and stumbled upon the lovely Verde Salvia ristorante with its simple white interior.  The Risotto alla Limone & Prosecco was bellisimo! This simple dish was a sensory sensation. It tasted delicous and the lemon aroma was intoxicating. The uncomplicated dish of Prosecco (a fizzy wine) and lemon was one of those dishes that I would order again despite wanting to try another dish on the menu. A delightful find with delicious food that is very reasonably priced.
