Terrific find outside of the touristy part...

This lovely restaurant overlooks the lake with a beautiful terrace. The food was excellent, as the owner is a professional fisherman and gets fresh fish every day. We had sardines from the lake, plus a breaded local catch that was outstanding. It's a beautiful terraced restaurant - we sat... read more

We were staying in the hotel, so ate here three times during our week's stay, and not just because it was convenient! The food was lovely and the restaurant is clearly popular with local people as well as guests. The waiting staff are friendly and the lake view is beautiful. We ate outside two nights and inside one night, as... More

My meal was absolutely vile. I am sorry to write this but there is simply nothing redeeming to say about it. We arrived to a concerned looking waiter asking impatiently if we definitely had a booking - he agreed that we did (phew?!?). We then sat down and noticed that birds were pecking at the bread rolls all laid out... More

We arrived late (930) without a reservation. Other restaurants would not seat us. The staff was very friendly and helpful and happy to seat us. The pastas were fantastic- spaghetti pomodoro and spicy pennette were great. The steaks were heavenly!! One of the best steaks in a long time we have had. The ice cream Silvio (made at restaurant) was... More

A little out of the way but well worth the walk up the hill out of Bellagio. It is a beautiful location and th e food is superb. Local fish from the lake fresh organic veg all cooked beautifully. Half bottles of wine available which were great. I would definitely go back to this beautiful place.

We stayed at the Hotel Silvio so it was just very convenient to dine at the restaurant. We are so happy we did! All six of us enjoyed our meals, the wait staff was very nice and the atmosphere is lovely. It does get busy so make reservations and try to get a table near the window to enjoy to... More

Our first dinner in Bellagio was at Silvio's. Lavarello fish from Lake Como was delicious and so was the "pork shin". Make a reservation because it is quite popular. Having drinks at the patio overlooking the Lake was fantastic. Service was friendly and they accommodated my husband who is gluten free and vegetarian.
