“Great place for a quality quick lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We had a very good quick lunch on the terrace at Hotel Florence while waiting for the boat trip to Villa Balbianello. The terrace has great views, service is slick and a good choice of dishes.

“Lovely terrace and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

We had lunch and dinner (on separate days) at this lovely lake-side terrace. The food was good quality and good value, but it is the position which wins.

“Fantastic atmosphere, service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

We were 6 people and every one of us thought this was our best meal in the Lake Como area. The portions were good sized. The food was very tasty and offered some new twists from other menus. The tuna tartare wrapped in burrata had a different texture, but was lovely. The beef ravioli was perfect, with a gorgeous broth. The octopus was fabulous - and not the least but chewy. The lamb was also cooked to perfection. The wine list also proved great. Sitting by the water, under the tree and vine covered patio presented a gorgeous atmosphere to watch the sunset, the moonlight flitter over the lake, and this was suitable for a business meal or a romantic and cozy dinner. The wait staff were knowledgeable and attentive.

“Al Fresco dining at the Hotel Florence”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Bellagio is a lovely lake side town. Everyone knows that. Parking can be a challenge, though, so allow time for that. We took a stroll to find a lunch spot and were delighted to find the Hotel Florence's outside dining area. This is situated in front of the hotel across the narrow (and very quiet) road. The dining area seats about 50 and is entirely located underneath a lovely natural covering of foliage, pergola style. It is on the lake front and offers wonderful views across the water west and south. The menu was reasonably priced (€100 for four of us with starters, a main course, a couple of extras, coffee and soft drinks) given the location and setting. The food arrived promptly, was fresh and well presented (one dish was a little cool, but the kitchen is quite a way from the dining area), and the service was good. In all this was a great spot, possibly the best in Bellagio, for lunch and is recommended.

“romantic setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

We stayed at the Florence Hotel and had a wonderful evening at their restaurant across the road right on the lake side. The vine trellised dining area is so romantic. We had a table right on the waters edge and sipped our wine while we watched the lights come on over Lake Como.
The sevice was very friendly and warm. I had the ravioli and the veal, while my wife had risotto and trout, all cooked to perfection in sauces and flavours that didnt overpower the dish and in portions that allowed you enough room to share a dessert. We were sorry that we didnt eat here again before we left as it was definately the best we had dined in. Dont forget to book or you may be dissappointed
