“Excellent Food, Service and View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We took a chance on this restaurant because of the location, and didn't expect much other than a great view. We were pleasantly surprised as the food and service were excellent. We had the whole lake fish and it was beautifully prepared and served, along with the pasta. This restaurant completely destroys the myth that a hotel restaurant with a great view will not have good food.

“Outstanding View and Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Doesn't get any better than this in Bellagio. The view is outstanding, the food was better than most, and the service was very good as well. Pasta was cooked just right and tasty sauce. Rack of Lamb dish was perfectly cooked, tender and spices were perfect. Pear dessert with ice cream was very good as well. It will be a bit more pricy than some of the other restaurants (not much), but chalk it up to a cover charge for the view.

Pasta dishes and Caprese Salad are outstanding for lunch as well. Try the linguini sculio (with seafood). Simply outstanding.

“an outstanding restaurant in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

My wife and I had lunch twice at the Terraza Metropole. Not only is it in a prime position right beside Lake Como but the food is outstanding. Every course superb and beautifully presented and a fine selection of wines at reasonable prices. One of the best restaurants we have enjoyed anywhere in the world.

“Good food but better view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Compared with other restaurants in Bellagio the Metropole is rather overpriced. A single course for two with a half-bottle of wine came to Eur 90. But, that said, we paid for a fantastic lake view and watched the stars come out. Priceless!

“Twice enjoyed, want more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

One of the delights of visiting Lake Como is certainly a little time at Bellagio. With many choices of cafe, osteria and ristorante, the opportunity to sit right by the water, take in the view and feel the cool breeze on our faces was too important (to us) to miss.
On my first visit in May, we had coffee at a little spot, under trees almost straight off the ferry from Cadenabbia. But their menu did not suffice for a leisurely lunch a couple of hours later. We strolled further and saw Terrazzo Metropole - with shade, and built out over the water. Yes! Returning to Bellagio almost a month later with a different group of friends, we were again taking by the setting and decided to stop for lunch.
In both cases, the staff were attentive without hovering. When a mistake was made on the second visit, it was dealt with quickly, quietly and professionally - so, brilliantly! The menu had choices to meet various palates and the wine list offered options to match.
We were not rushed on from our relaxing and soaking up the view - there was no need to shorten our visit, except for our own time requirements.
I know there are other options in Bellagio, but I will certainly keep this in mind and suspect I'll be back, at some point!
