Found this by chance while out walking and stopped for a coffee. Lovely cafe overlooking the lake.Good coffee, uninterrupted views of the lake and mountains.Planned to return for a meal but ran out of time.

“Don't miss this location on a trip to Bellagio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Many visitors to Bellagio may miss out on walking out to the promontory called the "Punta Spartivento" as it is not in the village itself, which would be a pity as they would miss out on some wonderful views. If you arrive by ferry then turn left and start walking up past the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni. Carrying on uphill, instead of going right up to the Church Square go left and walk along this road which leads to the Punta Spartivento. This is the point where the lake splits itself into three branches with the backdrop of the mountains.There is a small harbour/marina with some boats, a little park and restaurant. Very pretty and tranquil spot.

“Lovely, high quality, great service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is a special place as it sits at the junction of the 3 parts of Lake Como. It is a lovely, short walk from the center of Bellagio. Good wine selection, very good food, very nice service and a beautiful setting away from the crowds. Use of local and fresh ingredients makes it even better.

“Best view, good service, nice food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Found this place unexpectedly whilst having a little walk. We were delighted with the view.

The pasta was just fine.

It is a marvellous place for lunch

It is obviously popular with coach parties of old people.

My advice is to arrive about 12.00 and you will be able to sit in a nice area away from them.

We think there is only one lavatory, so again watch out for the coach party of pensioners

The location and the quality of food of this restaurant was great. A bit windy though. I would recommend it.
