Okay, you won't find this place walking around town. It's located high on the hill above Bellagio, but if you call they will come down to the turnaround near the car ferry pier and pick you up and bring you back after dinner (no charge). It's a winding road up to the restaurant and if you didn't like the drive out to Bellagio to begin with then you won't like this one either, especially in the dark after dinner and some wine, so do yourself a favor and let them do the driving!

The restaurant mostly consists of two patios that overlook Bellagio and the northern half of Lake Como, though there is an inside area as well if the weather is not conducive to sitting out (but if it isn't nice enough to sit out, why would you go up there?).

The service and the food were good, local fare. I just remember that my wife had the dried, salted lake fish, which was weird beyond words, but she likes to try new things. One of the few times she couldn't finish her dinner - an acquired taste to be sure. I had a wild boar stew that looked and tasted exactly like a simple beef stew, but I wasn't going to argue about what kind of meat it really was. It was nicely presented and tasted good. But the real treat was the view as the sun went down and the lights around the lake came up. Certainly our most memorable meal in Bellagio.

I would rather pay extra for the wine, the cover charge for cutlery is offensive! Careless and cold attitude of staff, maybe they hope the view will make up for their standard service, maybe it did! View is amazing but again it is not hard to find a good view in Bellagio. I think there are better restaurants that offer greater value. Just ok.

A lovely family run restaurant on a farm. The food is delicious (simple but traditional local food - all home-made and mostly home-grown) and so well priced. The real reason to come: (1) the view, (2) make sure you don't go away without taking some oil with you! I have never tasted such beautiful olive oil, so good you could almost drink it. I bought the last two bottles they had in stock and would contemplate driving all the way back down there, just for the oil....

Wow. We had an amazing dinner at Baita Belvedere. Perfect from start to finish. On our complimentary ride up the hill, we even got to pick up the raspberries (from the farmer) that would be our dessert. Fantastic, romantic views of Bellagio and the lake. Excellent service. Beautiful, fresh ingredients. This is a must-visit!

There are many reasons to dine at Trattoria Baita Belvedere in Bellagio.
The first is the stunning and breath taking view that the restaurant has to offer overlooking Bellagio nestled against Lake Como. It is such a unique and amazing place to have dinner, with such an outstanding view. The second is the cuisine, which is farm to table and very fresh. Definitely check out the cheese plate to start it is created from products grown and made on the restaurants farm. Third the blueberry grappa is delicious and a great way to end a meal. Finally this restaurant offers to pick up guests staying in Bellagio which is really nice since the drive is about 30 minuets windy and up hill. The ride home at night is one to remember as well, I could never drive those roads as the locals do.
The service here was very good and we were not rushed during our meal.
It was a great experience and I highly recommend this restaurant.
