“Nice restaurant, but slightly over-rated.”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

My wife and I had a nice evening at this restaurant that started with apertivos at sunset and continued into dinner. Great company however the food at this restaurant left a little to be desired.

The service was attentive with the lovely waiter being as helpful as possibly but compared to the other lovely meals we ate throughout Italy, this was not a highlight despite the hefty price tag. Decent food is worth paying extra for however in this case, it seems that the restaurant relies too heavily on location to substantiate mid-top end prices.

Location/ambiance lift the rating I would otherwise give this restaurant for food quality and value.

I would not necessarily return on my own choice.

“Phenomenal desserts and fantastic view”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

The view is amazing and I could have sat there for hours. The dessert are ridiculously good and there is a huge selection. Service is very attentive. A great place for a meal or afternoon snack.

“One of my top 10”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Stayed at the Hotel Florence and decided to dine there the first night in Bellagio. Dining along the waterfront was great and the meal itself was even greater. Started out with the sea bass tartare with avocado which was awesome. It got better with the pumpkin risotto....very light on the pumpkin flavor and just incredibly wonderful. The duck breast with a chocolate sauce sounded unusual, but it worked really well with the duck. Finished the meal with a very nice cheese assortment.

“What a view. So romantic.”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This terrace restaurant run b the hotel, overlooks Lake Como in Bellagio, Italy. It is covered in vines to shade you from the sun, and has glorious views over the lake. A perfect place for a drink in the afternoon. A cocktail will come with a variety of nibbles (olives, chips, peanuts, etc.) I never ate there, but spent several lovely afternoons. Can't be beat.

“The best meals we had on the lake”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We stayed in Como for a week and eat lunch and diner out every day. We had many a good meal but this one was the best (and most expensive). The views of the lake are stunning, food and wine to match.

Always good to pre book and request a table by the lake as even though the food is great you need to be next to lake to feel the full value.
