Sant'Anna 1907
Via Filippo Turati, 3, Como; Tel.: 031-505266
This exquisite and cozy restaurant has been in the family for three generations. Try their Lombard specialties such as risotto cooked with fish, rosemary or the traditional bitter, red radicchio (a type of salad). Accompany your meal with a bottle of Italian wine from their extensive wine list. In the evenings, the restaurant is illuminated by candlelight, which creates a very romantic atmosphere.

Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Piazza Costituzione, 10, Cagliari; Tel.: 070-658206
