“Excellent Food - Excellent View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Only by chance - or by knowign somebody, who knows that place you will find this beautiful place up in the hills above Bellgagio. When enjoying the typical food you have a "one-million-dollar" view on Lake Como. It was my second time there and I again enjoyed the friendly, warm atmosphere this place has. It is a absolute must-been, when you are around Bellagio.

“Awesome View, Nice Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Okay, you won't find this place walking around town. It's located high on the hill above Bellagio, but if you call they will come down to the turnaround near the car ferry pier and pick you up and bring you back after dinner (no charge). It's a winding road up to the restaurant and if you didn't like the drive out to Bellagio to begin with then you won't like this one either, especially in the dark after dinner and some wine, so do yourself a favor and let them do the driving!

The restaurant mostly consists of two patios that overlook Bellagio and the northern half of Lake Como, though there is an inside area as well if the weather is not conducive to sitting out (but if it isn't nice enough to sit out, why would you go up there?).

The service and the food were good, local fare. I just remember that my wife had the dried, salted lake fish, which was weird beyond words, but she likes to try new things. One of the few times she couldn't finish her dinner - an acquired taste to be sure. I had a wild boar stew that looked and tasted exactly like a simple beef stew, but I wasn't going to argue about what kind of meat it really was. It was nicely presented and tasted good. But the real treat was the view as the sun went down and the lights around the lake came up. Certainly our most memorable meal in Bellagio.

“Cover charge is annoying!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I would rather pay extra for the wine, the cover charge for cutlery is offensive! Careless and cold attitude of staff, maybe they hope the view will make up for their standard service, maybe it did! View is amazing but again it is not hard to find a good view in Bellagio. I think there are better restaurants that offer greater value. Just ok.

“Worth it even if just for the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

A lovely family run restaurant on a farm. The food is delicious (simple but traditional local food - all home-made and mostly home-grown) and so well priced. The real reason to come: (1) the view, (2) make sure you don't go away without taking some oil with you! I have never tasted such beautiful olive oil, so good you could almost drink it. I bought the last two bottles they had in stock and would contemplate driving all the way back down there, just for the oil....

“The ride is worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Wow. We had an amazing dinner at Baita Belvedere. Perfect from start to finish. On our complimentary ride up the hill, we even got to pick up the raspberries (from the farmer) that would be our dessert. Fantastic, romantic views of Bellagio and the lake. Excellent service. Beautiful, fresh ingredients. This is a must-visit!
