“Fantastic atmosphere, views, service, food and drinks.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We visited Malgrate and Lecco 3 times during the summer and stayed as always at the Hotel Griso very close by. We visited La Botte on most evenings. We were made to feel very welcome by the wonderful bar staff who clearly all enjoy working at La Botte. Despite our poor Italian we were easily able to order food and drinks. The outdoor seating area affords spectacular day and night time views across the lake to Lecco but all seats are taken quite quickly. Staff are very friendly, welcoming and attentive. Echoing a previous review, we felt like locals by the time we left and are already looking forward to returning next year in the summer.

Ciao ragazzi!!

“Superb atmosphere and venue”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Staying for a few days in Hotel Clarion Griso down the road we frequented this bar most nights.
The outside tables offer a great view across the lake to Lecco and over the newly refurbished Malgrate waterfront. Service was impeccable and super friendly despite my limited Italian, almost felt like a regular by the time we left. Have to say we never ate there, the snacks they provided with our beers fed us in abundance. Would definitely go back! Recommended if only for watching all the kiddies playing on the waterfront, a lovely example of proper Italian family life and very uplifting
