The two centuries years old "Mella" restaurant was taken over by Sala family in 1958.

We introduced a new activity, on the Lake of Como, which offered a good link between professional lake fishing and cuisine.

Today, Alessandro, a professional fisherman, keeps these traditions on :he catches fresh-water fish daily, then his wife Rosy proposes it in the menu.

The union between our typical products and the beautiful view of the lake from the first floor of the restaurant, will offer you an unforgettable experience.

Fishing tours and rooms are also available.

We were taken to this excellent restaurant by friends.The ambience, the service and the fresh lake fish were excellent and well worth the trip down the twisty roads with incredible views. The patron puts out the nets in the evening and pulls them in between 04.00 and 05.00 so the fish served in the restaurant are incredibly fresh. The cooking... More

We have just enjoyed one of the best fish meals we have had. We had a mixed grill of fish accompanied by vegetables and they were done to perfection. As other reviewers have commented a sorbet and coffee was an ideal accompaniment together with a bottle of local wine. Indeed the whole meal was perfectly put together drawing on local... More

The food was decent. I got the fish appetizer sampler. It was interesting, but I'm glad I didn't commit to any one dish. Looking at what the Italians were getting, the fish pate is something special. We got a soup a salad, the appetizer platter, a grilled fish special and steak plus ice cream. Everything was uniformly good. If you... More

We had an excellent meal on what was a quiet night. During coffee the heavens opened with torrential rain ( un-forecast by Internet) and neither my wife or I had a coat or umbrella. When I paid the bill I asked if I could borrow an umbrella to walk back to our apartment. Our host insisted on taking us back... More

My last night in San Giovanni and it was time to explore the local offering. My only regret is that I didn't take this option sooner. Far removed from the chaos of tourist ridden Bellagio, this gem delivers amazing food, atmosphere and service with a smile. What a fantastic farewell! Make sure you try the risotto with the fish, I... More

Just few meters from our Apartamento Il Porto. Fish Fish Fish. All fresh and finely prepared and cooked. Appears rugged from the outside but elegant fine dining from inside. And their servings are big! The crew were too kind to warn us not to order more! Not to be missed when in Bellagio.
