Make sure you know beforehand whether you’re going to have drinks or dranks. Then, pick your destination accordingly. You really can’t go wrong with any of the restaurants we visited during our happy hour tour in downtown COMO. It took us a full day, so why limit your happy to an hour? Be sure to check out these local eateries next time you need a pick-me-up after a day at work.
