In the heart of Como, Italy, with a terrific view of Lake Como, sits Bar Touring Caffe. The outdoor seating is near the boat and ferry dock, leading to fantastic views of the lake. This is the smart choice for travelers wanting a drink and food in Como, without breaking the bank.  With plenty of outdoor and indoor seating, this café is perfect for both sunny and rainy days. In the spring and summer, when tourists pack Como, reservations for outdoor seating are highly recommended.  PRO TIP: You must call for reservations because there is no online presence +39 031 306986

The best part of Bar Touring is their menu, which by Como standards is very affordable. They offer a full Italian menu including appetizers, savory pizza, regional pasta dishes, and desserts. A full bar with the best Negroni we have ever let wet our whistle.

Their happy hour menu is the best deal in town. For the low price of 12€ per person (roughly $13) you receive one cocktail (any one on the menu) and “lots” of tapas.  Curious what “lots” means? We ordered two happy hour deals and were served a smorgasbord of tapas. It included peanuts, potato chips, olives, seasoned potatoes, bruschetta, pasta in marinara, mini pizza bites, risotto balls, bread, cheese, cuts of salami, prosciutto and mortadella. A 24€ (roughly $26) bill to eat and drink in this part of Como is a steal. On top of that they don’t rush you to turn tables. So sit back, relax, sip your drink, enjoy the stunning view, eat and be happy!
