If you love seafood, this is the place for you. Besides amazing octopus, the ravioli was delicious. Even if you are only passing through Lago Como, stop by this place.

Description
Si respira un'aria di casa al "Lo Storico": ambiente caldo, tutto legno e ferro battuto, tavole addobbate in modo elegante, quel sapore antico e discreto che ci fa intuire di sostare in un luogo che la storia l'ha veramente vissuta. Stando alle rare carte ufficiali, è infatti dal 1941 che il locale esiste, ma, dando orecchio ad alcune testimonianze, nasce addirittura nel 1902 qual "locanda con camere", in un momento patrio ove il binomio cibo-sesso raccoglieva l'entusiastica partecipazione di borghesi, signorotti e miliziani. Passato poi per più mani nel corso dei decenni, divenne nel tempo "Ul Pinchett", ristorante dalla forte caratterizzazione locale a partire dal nome, preservato sino all'alba del terzo millennio. E qui entrano in scena Maria e Salvatore con grande passione per tutto ciò ch'è arte culinaria ed ospitalità "LO STORICO" di nome e di fatto, una vera esperienza dei sensi che riesce sempre a coinvolgere gli Ospiti, senza mai tradire le loro aspettative.
