Stayed at the Belvedere for three nights in early July. We had booked just for bed and breakfast but ended up having dinner there as well as nearly all the other restaurants close about 5pm (which was a bit disappointing), apart from one other hotel. We had paid extra for a lake view and our room was very nice with a small balcony. There is no lift and the staircase was extremely dark - the light only came on when we were outside our room. The setting of the restaurant is fantastic - virtually right beside the lake. The dinner menu was quite pricey but the service and presentation was excellent - complimentary aperitifs and canapes which were a nice touch although we were ultimately paying for them in the price! The staff were were all very friendly. Isola Pescatori is extremely busy during the day but it is lovely in the evening when the ferries have stopped and there are only the local residents there (about 40 people) plus the few tourists like ourselves.
Definitely a great experience if you want to get away from it all.
