“Excellent fish set menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We had the fish menu at 25 euros for a lunch on our last day. Unlike the reviewer who complained that the fish pasta was "too fishy", we really liked the mixed fish starter and the pasta with dried fish (local specialty) and the lake fish, which had been caught that morning. Good food, fresh ingredients, reasonable value and a pleasant atmosphere, despite the bustling tourist area. Service was good and not too rushed and the interior was traditional and not a modern clone restaurant. Good choice in Bellagio.

“Authentic and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Lovely family run trattoria serving geniune local food, simple yet tasty, at modest prices. Nice choice of fish appetisers and excellent grilled fish from the lake. Don’t miss ‘tagliolini ai missoltini’ - local speciality, absolutely delicious!

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We asked the friendly waitress at the lakeside bar where we should go to for the best Italian food in Bellagio. She gave us two recommendations and we chose San Giacomo because of its location. My husband and son ordered the fish and meat set menu respectively and my other son had hamburger with pesto. The waiter helped my husband clean the fish and promptly sent it back as soona s he saw that it was undercooked. The chef must have finish off the fish in the microwave because it came back slightly wet/soggy. Pity! I had grilled vegetables with tomato tagliatelle. Well cooked simple food and not too overworked. The staff were friendly although they looked too serious. The restaurant quickly filled up as soon as dinner started.

“Very good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

This was one of our better meals in Lake Como. Service is really good. The food was very tasty and the specials were nice. You would think Bellagio would be expensive, but the prices here were pretty reasonable. Only thing is that it is towards the top of the town. So if you have trouble with stairs, then it is a bit of a climb up.

“Wonderful authentic experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

My partner & I had an evening meal here and enjoyed it very much. I had the special which was pork ragu with tagliatelle. My partner had a pot roasted beef. Both meals were delicious and the atmosphere was delightful. A truly authentic eating experience in one of bellagio's quaint narrow streets. Would definitively recommend.
