This was the surprise of the trip for us. We booked last minute based on a recommendation from a couple from the UK and it was a lot of fun. The chef comes out to take your order and we asked for his recommendation. He suggested the salt encrusted fish, so naturally we went with that. A few glasses of... More

I will never forget Bellagio and this restaurant for three reasons: excellent service and extreme kindness of the Chef Luigi, delicious meals and local wines and because I was proposed in this restaurant! We arrived in Bellagio late at night during winter time and we had no place to stay. Kindness is around Bellagio and a woman helped us to... More

We stumbled on Salice Blu (Blue Spruce) right as it was closing at 2 pm, the waiter glanced at the chef who motioned us in to eat. Seeing that Chef Luigi Gandola was more than a little accomplished, we let him choose our menu. We had a fabulous meal of pasta, trout and an artisanal dessert, with Luigi's choice of... More

Salice Blu was recommended by a friend otherwise, we would have never known about it. The chef, Luigi, was delightful and energetic and is actively looking to make a name for himself among celebrity chefs in Italy, and most likely the world. He's still young and while his ideas are good, be prepared to try to grasp where he is... More

We visited this restaurant during a nice day of September. The place looks beautiful, with plants, candels and nice furnishings. All the dishes we had were good, but nothing to remember in such a particular way, considering the price. Service is a little "heavy". At the moment of paying, we were not asked if we were sarisfied or not. Simply... More

My husband and I arrived late at our hotel and were recommended this restaurant by them. We were staying out of the centre of Bellagio and didn't have a car so the chef at the restaurant offered to pick us up and take us back to the hotel afterwards. It was so kind of them, we really appreciated it. We... More

Expectations may have been too high but the food was ok. Chef came and picked us up from the ferry - which was really great. There are lots of cups and certificates on walls highlighting chef's awards so we were looking for something really special. The standout dish was the grilled Lake Fish - which was really amazing - so... More
