We had dinner there. A bit hard to find and distant from the village. Food was tasty and cheap (~$11 dish) but dishes were simple. Not sure if I would recommend the walk if you are not nearby.

The menu selection was superb, we chose tempura vegetables as a starter, great choice. The fish we ordered was great local fish and cooked to perfection. Sorbet was the best. Although restaurant was booked to capacity the staff were very attentive and friendly would return.

Found this place at lunchtime on walk round suburbs of Bellagio. Tucked away and quiet, menu looked good for light lunch. Starter sized fish pate and lake fish salad were just right followed by lovely sorbet.

What a lovely place - we only found it with a local recommendation and walked over from Bellagio for the evening. About a 20 min walk. The harbour next to the restaurant is beautiful and quiet in the evening giving great views down the lake...More

The two centuries years old "Mella" restaurant was taken over by Sala family in 1958.

We introduced a new activity, on the Lake of Como, which offered a good link between professional lake fishing and cuisine.

Today, Alessandro, a professional fisherman, keeps these traditions on :he catches fresh-water fish daily, then his wife Rosy proposes it in the menu.

The union between our typical products and the beautiful view of the lake from the first floor of the restaurant, will offer you an unforgettable experience.

Fishing tours and rooms are also available.
