A real disappointment. We were expecting delicious local lake fish. The fish was horrible. The mixed fish appetizer was a strange variety of fish prepared in unappetizing ways - pickled, etc. my main course was supposedly a fried lake fish, but it wS so dried out and salty, I couldn't eat it. When I mentioned this to the waiter, I... More

We stayed in the hotel Silvio for 6 nights and absolutely loved it. Beautiful views, comfortable room and kind, helpful and friendly staff. Our dining experiences in the restaurant, for our evening meals, however were the absolute opposite. I wondered at times if we had caused offence to prompt such unfriendly, indifferent service and rude behavior by more than one... More

No doubt about it, Ristorante Silvio knows how to put on a show. Being collected and dropped off from your hotel is a lovely touch, but the real star is the view. We were there eight weeks ago, and the view is almost all we can remember of the experience. The food was good, but clearly not outstandingly memorable, and... More

A beautiful view of Lake Como, good wine and excellent food! Portions are generous and service excellent! They will provide pick up service from Bellagio to the restaurant, five minutes by car.

We were visiting from San Francisco, another city with great local seafood, and our meal at Silvio was the highlight of eating out during our stay in Como. The food was fresh, perfectly prepared, service was impeccable, and the wine list was broad and fairly priced. A fine establishment! I am dismayed by the less favorable reviews of Silvio on... More

Even though Silvio passed away some 4yrs ago, it's now his son who goes out there every day to catch fresh fish for the restaurant. His family business also includes a hotel. The menu is short but includes what the sea has to offer each day. Even if you're significant other is a vegetarian, the restaurant offers great homemade potato... More

I booked this having read about it on T.A. and was really looking forward to something special. We were collected from our Hotel which I thought was a nice touch. The location was beautiful with lovely views over the lake. Once we were shown to our table we were very much ignored and I had the feeling that this was... More

a great selection of seafood straight from the lake. We had an appetizer and it was wonderful a selection of lake fish each prepared differently as well a some egg rue and pate. The Main was a wonderful braised pork shank and my wife had a lovely pasta with fish. The service was amazing.
