We went to this enoteca because of trip advisor reviews. The ambiance was decent, lighting could be improved- it was too bright and a bit sterile. The service however was good. We did a flight of Lombardia wines which were excellent and we enjoyed a local cheese and meat platter as well. The cost of the wine tasting for 3... More

nice place, small and cozy and a great setting. These people are the wine experts of the area. Sample or glasses or bottles.. Shipping too.. Best part is the food they serve with the wine.. Very friendly and helpful. One of the best places to go in Bellagio

Associated with Trattoria San Giacomo, just across the steps, this little watering hole has a vast wine collection, knowledgable servers, and a glorious host and owner, Aurelio Gandola, who is a fun loving food and wine champion. The Aperitivo is great before a meal at his restaurant. Worth the visit.

We went to Apertivo et al on a recent trip to Lake Como. The first night we went in we had decided to just enjoy a bottle of wine before moving on to another place for dinner. We ended up staying for a second bottle and some appetizers. The service we had was amazing and friendly. We loved this place... More

Friendly relaxed wine bar with surprisingly good local food, including casola - sausage and pork rib stew. Nice cheeses and salume. Lunch or light dinners. Good conversation with staff and other customers.

We were very pleased with the food, Lasagne and Ravioli. The wine"cellar" was great and very interesting but no service at all. The two waitresses were talking to each other from the second we arrived until we left! Very irritating!

Quality wine at a great price. Although this is not a restaurant we found the food was freshly made and delicious. We had a lovely meal in a charming location. Will go back next time we are in Bellagio.

As other reviews have stated, this is primarily a wine bar although listed as one of the top restaurants in Bellagio. I stopped by for late night food. Service was good and the atmosphere was nice. Food options were slightly limited. The cheeses were very good and fresh but I felt I had better meals elsewhere in Bellagio.

Was very disappointed to find this restaurant was more of a wine bar with very limited choice of food on menu. A lovely ambience in a cave setting, contemporary atmosphere. Not recommended as a typical rustic italian restaurant but a nice place for a glass of wine and aperitif.

The dessert and wine was very nice, but the food was nothing special (average). The atmosphere in the restaurant is cozy, and this restaurant is worth a visit for wine and dessert. Service was good, and the prices are reasonable/ok.
