When you discover a not so touristy restaurant in Brera: Restaurant Osteria di Brera (10. July 2020)

And just when I had thought that I have tried almost every restaurant in Brera, I realised that it wasn’t the case. The Osteria di Brera is in that sense lovely as there is no annoying guy to try to get you in to eat. And it also looks lovely in terms of atmosphere and […]

Great Italian dishes despite the touristic area: Restaurant Vetusta Insigna (9. July 2020)

Great Italian dishes despite the touristic area: Restaurant Vetusta Insigna (9. July 2020)

Finding a decent restaurant in a touristy place like Navigli is not really easy – however, somehow I managed to find exactly that. The Vetusta Insigna has small tables right next to the canal and if you’re lucky enough, you get a table there which is, admittedly, very tiny in terms of space but it […]

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)

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)

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 […]
