I have bought from this shop for the past 5 years on every trip to Bellagio and has NEVER been disappointed.
Knowledgeable and friendly staff/owners with quality silk and MANY years of experience(WITHOUT being pushy or trying to desperately sell you anything!)makes this a shopping pleasure.
A true gem!

From Missoni scarves to their own designs, this shop is a delight. They sell all sorts of square and long scarves, mainly in silk but also in linen, as well as a range of pashminas which appear to have different patterns on each side - wonderful feel and range of colours. The charming staff are happy to unfold and display anything you want to look at and are not at all pushy. I even got a quick lesson in different ways to fold a scarf I was considering! Only downside is that the shop are halfway up (or down) a cobbled stepped street, so you have to take care not to be distracted by the window display as you walk past! They have a second shop at the top of the street which also sells menswear and silk bags.

We visited the delightful town of Bellagio on Lake Como and wanted to purchase some silk scarves for taking home gifts. After looking at a couple of shops we found this delightful store of quality silk scarves, stoles, shawls, ties etc.
The colours and patterns were stunning and the price was acceptable for such quality goods.
The staff were very helpful and gave advice without pressing for me to purchase. I did, in fact, purchase two beautiful scarves made of locally produced silk and cashmere. They are lightweight but warm and have exquisite patterns on both sides (almost like they are reversible).
One is in warm tones of orange and browns and the other in a rich purple colour in a kind of paisley pattern.
If you are looking for a silk scarf make this your first stop, you won't be disappointed.

There are two Azalea stores. The one at Salita Serbellona 31 is owned by the parents; the smaller one at Salita Serbellona 41 is owned by the son. The "31" store is good -- nice silks at a good price; the styles are similar to a number of other stores in Como, and the price is competitive. The "41" store is where the real value is. The prices are a little higher, but the owner (Luca) has an incredible eye for style, color and quality. We ended up buying quite a few items for ourselves and others. His clothing and scarves are the most elegant we saw in several towns. These items would sell for two or three times as much in NY or Washington

The "41" store also has does not hound you like some stores do. There were some stores where the "helpful" storekeepers would follow you around and tell you about every item you looked at. Luca keeps a respectful distance, and is available to answer questions, but lets you wander about as you want.
