Aperitivo is a cosy bar that provides comfort food snacks and meals while enjoying cocktails and Italian Wine. Andrea the wine expert provides you with an interesting background and history of italian wine but also suggests wines for each occasion. For me I went back night after night because the happy hour and chats we had with Andrea made my... More

Very nice cellar... long list of wines to choose from. The service was good the first day and we got a really nice bottle of wine recommended by the guy. Food is ok...nothing fancy to wait for.

We stopped in here for a little break before lunch having travelled up by train from Milan and then ferry from Verenna. We each chose a local wine and when they arrived the owner explained where they came from and what the differences were between them. Surprisingly, their taste, to our palattes, increased with the cost, with the most expensive... More

Atmosphere, wine and cheese, this place made our holiday! We stayed for two nights in Belaggio, and went there both nights. We didn't have a meal, but just sat and ate cheese and drank wine as it was recommended by our very knowledgable waiter, loved it!

We stumbled upon this place accidentally, drawn by the promise of an excellent wine shop inside. What a surprise! A beautifully done out winebar in a vaulted cellar, great, cheap food, dozens of wines by the bottle and glass, amazing wine knowledge on the part of the young and welcoming staff, and an Enoteca to die for (and yes, they...

Didn't eat here, as we went over to San Giacomo instead, but had two very enjoyable visits. The wine tasting is worth doing, and there is such a great range of drinks to choose from. Friendly staff.

It's well positioned opposite the trattoria San Giacomo at the top of the steps and the host is a great salesman for local wines. I recognise a fellow wine lover and from day 1 this was my first and last port of call. Try the local wines especially the rose and the Nebbiolo. Also the prosecco millellesime (spelling?) and even... More

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.
