Friendly and tasty. Good wine, mozzarella, pizza, and tiramisu. Close to Sunny Cove. Outside dining with patio heaters.

We had a wonderful dinner last night! The swordfish special was delicious and the fish was cooked perfectly! The chicken scallopini was so tasty! Wonderful wine and dessert choices as well!

Amazing service and delicious food. We enjoyed the Calamari and Cioppino.

We walked here from our Santa Cruz lodging and had a delightful meal. The next night, we had plans elsewhere that did not work out, so we decided to dine here again. The second night did not disappoint. The staff was entertaining and attentive AND there was a special appearance by il loro straordinario pasticcere! Definitely save room for dessert.

Delicious food, great atmosphere. You have to try the burrata app special, so good and we ate it so quickly that we didn't have time to get a picture. We went for a birthday and they brought out a cute chocolate bomb with a candle. Will definitely be back to try more items. They have nice out door patios with heaters too!

Legit Italian restaurant!Owner is from Como (Italy), like me, and food is good and not overpriced. I liked their polenta. Pizza, also, is authentic and reasonable both in size and price. We'll be back.

Our go to Italian restaurant! You can really taste the authenticity at this place. The owner and a few of the staff are straight from Italy and they're so friendly. The wood fired pizzas are amazing! We come here at least once a month!

The owner is very friendly and goes out of his way to say hello to all of his guests. In terms of the food it is authentic and oozing with traditional Italian flavors. If you want the real deal, this is the place. Note: the lighting inside is quite harsh, so I would recommend sitting outside on the patio. Attire: casual-chic with a comfortable jacket and scarf for outdoor dining (they do provide heat lamps).

If your looking for authentic Italian cuisine then Logo do Como is your place to go. Excellent food the Frittata di Calamari was excellent lightly floured and fresh Calamari perfectly bite size portions. The service is excellent as well waiter on top of his game! Buenisimo! And be sure to make reservations in advance! Tables fill up fast????❤️

Food is always delicious but the service takes it over the top. Take a trip to the east side and enjoy a true Italian food gem.

This restaurant is okay! Some positives include a good wine selection, a comfortable-ish outdoor patio, and a large menu (if you're into having a big selection). Lago Di Como is nothing to write home about. Our service was slow and rude, but we saw nearby tables waited on by gregarious, attentive wait staff. I have the suspicion that good service may be a roll of the dice. However, water was attended by a server just refilling water, so at least our glasses were never empty. The food was decent! It was prepared well enough, but didn't offer much sophistication or special interest. My wife is an excellent cook, and she's really dialed in her Italian food. We were a bit disappointed by the "one-note" flavors of the dishes after being spoiled by her work. I got a pizza. I saw yelp photos of pizzas with individuated ingredients and I assumed people ordered them like that. But no, you read a great list of ingredients, and the pizza comes out with each ingredient sitting in its own section. It was explained to us that the chef is a real stickler for traditionalism. I'm not sure what tradition that is but I now empirically understand why every other pizza restaurant in the world has broken tradition. My least favorite slice was the briny olive slice. It was just too much; each bite seemed to sop the saliva directly from my glands before it could even quench my parched mouth. The olives themselves were great, but overbearing when piled in a single heap. Spread over the entirety of the pizza, the olive would have been an excellent ingredient. Preferably with the other ingredients spread around also. But preferences are irrelevant here, my friend tried to add a topping to her pasta dish and was told it was nontraditional and therefore not allowed. (I have no problem with a chef who refuses to customize an order, but since the chef and I have different tastes, it makes Lago Di Como a far less compelling choice.) Another peeve, the recommended tip on the receipt is based on the gross (post-tax) total, not what you actually spend on the food. (I hope we do away with tipping soon!) I felt lousy giving the rude, slow server 15% of the pre-tax total, but I'd feel even worse not tipping because even charmless under-qualified waiters have to pay rent, and times are tough right now. Strongest recommendation from the evening is the Frittura di Calamari, but I won't be going back to have it again.
