“Very Good Food and Nice Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Very nice restaurant with delicious food and good service. We've eaten at this restaurant several times both this year and last and have had a variety of pasta dishes (i.e. tagliatelle bolognese) and pizzas. All were fresh and we always enjoyed our food and the service was good. Very nice outdoor seating area.

“Nice ambiance outdoors - Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We ate here our first night in Bellagio and were overall happy with the experience. We first walked into the restaurant and there were too many families with children - it was kind of loud, so we asked for a table outside. They had heaters which made it very pleasant. Service was prompt and curteous. I had the seafood pasta - the calamari in it was outstanding as was the sauce they used for the linguini. One of my friends had the lasagna and continued to talk about it for the rest of our two weeks Italy. We were 4 single female friends traveling together. We give this place a thumbs up.

“Good Restaurant a little way off the main track”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Good food, well cooked. Just off the main ‘street ‘ in Bellagio, but was worth finding. Good , friendly service. As with most of Bellagio English is the main language used.

“Avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Two nights ago we chanced on this place because other nearby restuarants were fully booked. We would have done better to buy a sandwich. Alarm bells rang when the menu stated that if fresh ingredients were not available, frozen or canned might be used - bizarre, but as it turned out - prophetic. We should have walked out after our starters. My mix of cold/smoked lake fish was ghastly - managing to combine toughness, fresh from the fridge blandness and a touch of rancidity all on one plate. It was virtually inedible, and in view of what happened the next day, it might have been better for us if it had been. My wife meanwhile had a bresaola, dressed with a balsamic dressing that had been sitting on the plate so long it had congealed. For our main course we both chose lamb chops, and these duly arrived coated in a glutinous deep brown sludge that I hadn't seen the like of since school dinners in the 1970s. The mixed vegetables lived up to their billing of being either frozen or canned - I think they were a bit of each, but certainly none of them had been growing in the recent past. The waiter was probbaly trying his best, but managed to bring the wrong wine, and seemed preoccupied with managing his pda notepad rather than paying proper attention to customers. This place was a food factory of the worst kind, and should be avoided. It's virtually impossible to make a definite connection, but the next day I suffered from a stomach upset, and my wife was off colour for a day or two. We had shared the worrying cold fish starter. In a town with so many decent, honest places to eat, this excuse for a restaurant deserves to go out of business.

“modest at the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

nice little place and comes withe a covercharge at 2.50 per person! this means you go here as we did for a pizza and fried vegetables at 8-10 euros each you will pay at least 5 euros more as a couple at lunchtime...common in italy but not on a lunchbreakplace as this.
Anyway....now you know
Keep on eating
