The food was very nice and lovely setting overlooking the lake. The restaurant runs a free taxi service which is useful. It's a fish based menu so if you don't like lake fish then the options are limited.

I found it by chance because the nearby Darsene di Loppia restaurant was booked for a private party and it was a very fortunate coincidence. The views of the lake are great and the food very good. They seem to specialise in fish (e.g. lavarello from the lake or pike), the menu is rather short but everything we tasted (perhaps except for semifreddo) was a least tasty (some delicious). Presentation of the dishes is attractive and not too fussy and the service competent and friendly. It should be mentioned that the prices make it quite a bargain. For what you would pay in the simplest trattoria in the centre of Bellagio here you get high quality dishes. As to wines, there are decent bottles for 14-15 Euro. If you want a table with the best view, it would be useful to make a reservation, as it appears quite many Italians (and some tourists) come for dinner.

We were recommended this hotel for the fish by a local and so decided to try it out. We visited with kids and the views from the terrace over the Lake were amazing and very romantic, even with 2 young boys joining us for dinner! Only issue I would have is that the service was average, friendly enough but not very attentive. I would still give it a go as the food was good and view fantastic!

We went to this restaurant with a group of colleagues. We had a set menu with different types of fish. All very nicely prepared. Good selection of wine. The view on the lake is magnificent. We had a table outside but in the shade.

The Silvio is located south of Bellagio on the road to Como. It is also listed in the ‘Osterie d’Italia’, a slow food travel guide and definitely fulfils expectations!

To have an unrestricted view from your table over the opposite shore of Lake Como I recommend making a reservation in advance.

The menu lists typical Italian fare and I highly recommend ordering the fish ravioli in sage butter, the veal, and fish of the day. I easily could have returned every single night since the view is stunning, and the food unbelievable!

In summary Silvio is THE restaurant you shouldn’t miss when in Bellagio or the Lake Como region. However, the drive to the restaurant might be a challenge for some travelers since we are talking a ‘one-lane’ two-way traffic road for US standards that even freak out European drivers!

+ outstanding food,
+ stunning views.
+ attentive staff

Average entrée: EUR 15-20.
Credit cards accepted.
