We were starving and it was after 2:30pm when most of Bellagio's restaurants have stopped serving for the afternoon. We happened to see the cutest little restaurant along one of the main uphill walks/climbs. The beautiful napkin and tablecloth arrangement signaled something special, as did the two tables squeezed outside next to the walkway.

Sure enough, the food and service were as great as the table setting and location! We loved it!

We went specifically to Bellagio on the ferry for lunch, after wandering around we found ourselves in a wonderful leather shop, after our purchase, we asked the lady owner for her recommendation for lunch, her favourite was this restaurant opposite her shop, she lunched there most days, so we took her advice. A cosy, but airy, trattoria, we waited a little longer than we would have liked to have our order taken, but after that all was good, the wine, a superb Italian rose, was a perfect choice for lunchtime drinking and along with a brilliant pizza, (which I must add passed the stringent 'crust test' my partner puts every pizza through!) and an excellent 'scallopine al limone' we were well satisfied. The bill was surprisingly reasonably, the service improved and we left very happy to enjoy the rest of the joys of Bellagio.

Went on an afternoon when there was only 4 or 5 other tables occupied. There were two staff serving plus the chef, took nearly 40 minutes for a pizza and a salad to arrive. food was average, service was not particularly attentive but it was a nice quiet spot to while away the time if you are not pushed for time.

After eating at the lakeside restaurants for 2 nights we decided to try this Trattoria which is only 1 minute walk from the lakeside. We found very friendly and helpful staff and enjoyed the best meal we had in Bellagio (and better than our Venice meals as well). The quality and presentation of the meal was excellent. Our meal included a main and dessert as well as wine and cost €57 - much less than our other meals in Bellagio. We found the lakeside restaurants to be overpriced and impersonal so this was a refreshing change. We would recommend you taking the 1 minute walk.

Delightful people, fresh cooked simple local food, not for a special night out but excellent value, good for families and a very short walk from the lake front
