Great Fun

It was a wonderful stop for a relaxing family style lunch. Too much to eat and trick topped off my the purification ceremony by the owner.

Location, location, location. A very special place with beautiful views, Fun taking the boat to the island and the history of the island is interesting too. The set meal provides you with large quantities of food but nothing is extraordinarily good (or bad). Since we're in Italy, we have some expectations based on meals elsewhere. The grilled fish course was... More

This review is a little late in coming but was exploring Lake Como and was reminded of our trip to this restaurant 2 years ago. We were late arrivals on a Sunday afternoon and very lucky to find a table for six....and then the journey began. We didn't know what to expect but the food and the wine began to... More

The owner of the company I work for told me that one the best meal experience he has ever had was in the Locanda dell'Isola Comacina. Same chef for decades. On the door there was a sign “we have been serving the same menu successfully for decade, do not ask to change it. No weird foods though. We dined there.... More

This is the only island in Lake Como, Bellagio (Italy). Being an island, you must reach it by boat. Boats can be rented or the hotel can make arrangements but there is also a boat that will take you over to the island and return yo back to the car park after dinner. Once you arrive at the island and... More

Spent our last day in Como having lunch at Locanda dell"Isola Comacina. This restaurant is on a little island in the lake and takes a boat or ferry to get to, but so worth it. The owner, Benvenuto Puricelli, welcomes you warmly and personally makes sure you meal is everything you desire. The menu is fixed price and so is... More

When we were first told of this restaurant we initially felt it would be too touristy for our liking, but after reading some of the reviews and our traveling companions wanting to go we decided to give it a try. Very glad we did. The experience was fun and the food was very good. We went at the end of... More

The meal was good to very good with rustic presentation and a genial host who makes the rounds of the tables with a warm smile and charm and finishes the night with a blazing brandy and coffee concoction while telling the history of the island and it's inhabitants. Together with the great location and (if you're lucky) a full moon... More
