We stayed three nights at La Pergola, and noticed on reviews prior to arriving, that staff were reviewed as unfriendly. In actual fact, they are a lovely group of three generations of family members, where the business has been in their family for decades. At first impressions, they are not smiley at all, but we found they were very generous and would do anything for you. We noticed that those guests who mirror the family's demeanour did not enjoy their meals nor stay.
We tried something different and smiled at them and greeted them warmly, and what seems like brusqueness evaporated. For whatever reason, they don't smile as much as other restaurant/hotel owners as they are a gentle and somewhat shy family, but don't ruin your visit thinking they are unfriendly, as they have a heart of gold.
All that aside, the building is amazing, approximately 500-600 years old, and they are positioned right on the lake itself. Views to die for.
We both had trout and vegetables the first night. Delicious and well priced at €14. If you like gooey chocolate cake with moist hot sauce flowing from the centre, try the chocolate pie for €9. Yum.
Breakfasts overlooking the lake were delicious also. Rooms clean and very comfortable.
Please understand that this hotel is located in a stunning little hamlet called Pescallo within Bellagio, but you must walk over the hill (about 10 minutes of steps) to get there.
I would definitely stay/eat there again.
