As we got off the ferry and watched the crowds rushing to the local cafes we were lucky enough to be picked up by staff from Silvio Restaurant out of the main stream 5 minutes away. The spectacular views over Lake Como were nothing compared to the meal we experienced. Four of us devoured fresh seafood meals caught daily by... More

My husband and I were staying at the hotel and while not normally a fan of eating in the hotel restaurants he had twisted his ankle so we decided to eat in. We also are not fans of fish but decided to go all the way. Wow - wow - wow! We had good service, Delicious fish from the lake... More

This restaurant was over-hyped by a friend. It was good for fresh fish, but not excellent. The terrace dining was very pleasant. Service was very good.

I was given the name of this restaurant/hotel from a friend who lives in milan. apparently this restaurant is famous for the local fish that they serve. upon sitting down i was amazed by the view, but that's when it went downhill. the fish appetizer was oversalted. at that point i already regretted having ordered a primi (pasta) and a...

We stayed in the hotel and used restaurant first night. To be honest the prices were ok and inline with UK. The food was miles better than your average UK restaurant. Fish is caught by the owner and is delicious. The wine is fantastic, staff friendly and attentive. The time from order to receiving food is very good. Good value,... More

Hi. Don't take rooms on the restaurant side of the hotel ( a lot of noise and smell, rooms 5, 6, 7) and if you book a table, please be sure that it is located on a terrace and not inside the building. Dishes are expensive and not so good if you would compare it with ordinary Bellagio's restaurants. BR... More

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 outdoors - and the staff was gracious and helpful. They even... 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
