Exquisite service in a lounge: Executive Lounge @ Sheraton Lake Como (7. April 2019)

Exquisite service in a lounge: Executive Lounge @ Sheraton Lake Como (7. April 2019)

The Executive Lounge at the Sheraton Lake Como is rather small but offers a surprisingly decent breakfast selection. There is some egg, some bacon, some sausages – all in all, really everything which you need for breakfast. There is even a selection of some fresh fruit, cold cuts, and little appetizers … … a small […]

Quite typical Middle Eastern style shisha lounge: The Diamond Lounge (6. April 2019)

Quite typical Middle Eastern style shisha lounge: The Diamond Lounge (6. April 2019)

The Diamond Lounge is probably the only place in Como where you can get a shisha (EUR 12.00) and it is really almost like in the middle east. The majority of the people are male and don’t drink any alcohol. The interior of the place is decent but not overly appealing. All in all, the […]

Mouth-watering experience – a must visit! @ Restaurant The Market Place (6. April 2019)

When researching a bit about possible restaurants to visit, The Market Place kept popping up in a variety of apps, so I decided to give it a try. As it was rather last minute, it wasn’t entirely easy to score a table but I was lucky. Once seated, the “amuse bouche” was served which was […]

Good aperitivo but lousy service: Caffè Monti (6. April 2019)

Good aperitivo but lousy service: Caffè Monti (6. April 2019)

What I love about Italy is their aperitivo culture. Given I haven’t been there for a while, I had somehow forgotten a bit about it and was rather surprised when the aperitivo platter (EUR 3.00 – coperto) was served with something I hadn’t ordered. As soon as I remembered, I was regretting ordering the actual […]

The absolutely perfect pasta alla Bolognese experience: Restaurant Ciacco (21. December 2018)

Given we somehow did not manage to try that famous pasta of Bologna, it was time to do that on our last evening. Although we just came from days of eating way too much, somehow we still decided that we should do that. Included in the “coperto” (EUR 3.00) was a little tasty ball – […]

Lunch at the No. 1 of the world – worth the travel: Osteria Francescana (21. December 2018)

I always wanted to eat at the best restaurant in the world and finally today was the day! The Osteria Francescana has been elected No. 1 restaurant in the world for the second time after 2016. And it is accordingly difficult to score a reservation although not as impossible as for other restaurants like the […]

Absolutely unique and delicious experience with a great sommelier: Restaurant Pappagallo (20. December 2018)

Absolutely unique and delicious experience with a great sommelier: Restaurant Pappagallo (20. December 2018)

Our original intention upon entering the Pappagallo was to try the famous “tagliatelle al bolognese” – however, things turned out quite differently. Instead, we went for a “tasting menu” (EUR 80.00) which was put together especially for us. It started with bread and broken grissinis. Then, the fun bagan – we started with a “fired […]

Decent aperitivo place to warm up from the cold: Dolce Salato Bistrò (20. December 2018)

When you want to take a short break from the cold in the middle of Bologna, the Dolce Salato Bistrò is definitely a place which I can recommend you to do so. The atmosphere is lovely, the staff is friendly and relatively swift. I went for a glass of San Giovese (EUR 6.00) and a […]
