While touring the Borromean Islands, we stopped for lunch at Ristorante Belvedere located on Isola Pescatori as suggested by our guide. It is located on the quieter side of the island and offers a beautiful view. We started with a nice assortment of cheeses, sliced meats, and grilled eggplant. I was feeling experimental and tried a dish of thinly sliced... More

The location was excellent with superb views. Prices are high. Non- Italians are given rubbery rolls while italians are given a basket of fresh cut bread and bread sticks. I wanted their lamb chops but they were out. The perch with vegetables was tasty but expensive.

Dear Maillysr, thank you for your review about our restaurant. Concerning your affirmation about our prices, we think that they are in line with the level of the restaurant, the quality of the food and the service offered. For lunch, you can have a complete menu at € 20,00 per person. Consider that the perch fillet that we serve cost... More

We ate lunch at this restaurant, nothing special, just the usual tourist fare. The food was OK but just average. We had seafood starter then a pasta primi and a piece of lemon cake for dessert, the lemon cake was dry. Very busy, so service wasn't great, nice view over area of the lake. Not much else to say about... More

I was staying on the island with my family when we had dinner at Ristorante Belvedere. The restaurant was clear about wanting reservations but just the same offered us a lovely table with view of the lake in the garden terrace area.

Dear Mary Ann, thank you! You are right, we prefere working with reservation, especially when we know it will be a busy day/evening. This allows us to better organise the service and tables. We wait you for another dinner when you'll come again to the island! Kindest regards Paco More

We stayed at the hotel and ate at the restaurant several times. The service was excellent, the view of the lake wonderful, and the food the best we had.

We went here for the recommended great Italian food. We were not disappointed, this is highly recommended. First we had different small pizza-pastries with sparkling wine, then salads, hams and melons, great great sea bass and then lemon cake (like my grandmother's, now gone since long), coffee and lovely lemon liqueur. We will be back!
