I had read of this restaurant and was quite, quite excited to visit. Reservations made, expectations laid and exceeded. The promise of a simply prepared luncheon was a celebration in flavors primarily produced with only for enrichments, damn fine extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon, sea salt and pepper. Table set on a veranda looking north on the lake, the... More

Went here for lunch as part of a tour. Food was mostly good, but the whole experience felt a little theatrical. It's a 5 or 6 course meal, depending on how you count. Started out very well, unusual caprese with lemon instead of balsamic, then fabulous antipasti -- lots of lightly sauteed vegetables, some prosciutto, etc The next course, "salmon... More

WOW, did not disappoint. After 7 weeks in Italy, we all loved this very relaxing LONG lunch. My kids 6 and 10 years enjoyed this too and didn't moan once!! The food and wine was simple, delicious and abundant. Rustic Italian at it's best. Loved starting with masses of deliciously prepared vegetables and warm bread thrown (literally) on the table....

Went here to 'break bread' if you will with my wifes family and mine for the first time The setting is unbelievable and you get to see both sides of como as opposed to just looking at the opposite side of the lake The food was fantastic from start to finish. Service was very accommodating. Remember, you are going here... More

We stayed in Bellagio and used the water taxi service to reach this restaurant. The restaurant was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. This place has an amazing traditional buzz about it. Whilst the food is a set menu and fixed price this is by no means a negative. Food was great, service fantastic and the fixed price... More

Upon a recommendation by friends (who had dined there before) we traveled to Locanda from Lezzeno via mid-lake boat for lunch. We were greeted by Benvenuto Puricelli, the owner of the restaurant. We were led to a lakeside side on the patio and afforded a fabulous view of the lake. Over the next three (3) hours we enjoyed a five-course... More

We arrived by boat and were welcomed by the very friendly and unpretentious staff who showed us to our table at the edge of the patio area overlooking the lake. The food was rustic as it was intended to be but having served the same menu since 1947 everything is done to perfection. As the sun went down our first... More

There is not one aspect of Locanda dell'Isola Comacina that can be labeled the best...it is the combination of the whole experience. From the time you board the boat,till the time you walk the path saying goodbye, this is something you will not forget. The architecture of the building, the courtesy of the staff, sharing of traditions, the big personality... More

We were on a boat trip around the Mennagio area and got extra tickets to go Bellagio to the island and wow was it worth it! It was 68 euros each and I was a bit scared that we were going to get ripped off and we were taking friends so I really hoped it wasn't rubbish. We were running... More

The food is simple, tasty, served in a fun manner and there is lots of it. It was a fun evening out. We were made to feel very welcome by our host Benvenuto sporting his tartan waistcoat and wooly hat! It was quite expensive but worth every penny for the experience. he boat trip to the island deed to the... More
