We made a reservation beforehand and that was a good idea as people were waiting for the place to open at 19.30. We got the fish ravioli dish and the fresh pasta with smoked fish in a creamy tomato sauce. Both dishes were excellent and...More

This is our favorite restaurant in Bellagio. The dishes are incredibly delicious and the daily menu is the way to go: appetizer, first course, second course, dessert and coffee--all of them being weekly specials based on their fresh catches that week! The authenticity and at-home...More

We were staying in San Giovanni & this is the only restaurant. It's a nice quiet spot, feels very local & has a view of part of the lake. Friendly service although we were sitting outside & sometimes it was difficult to get their attention....More

We had dinner there. A bit hard to find and distant from the village. Food was tasty and cheap (~$11 dish) but dishes were simple. Not sure if I would recommend the walk if you are not nearby.

The menu selection was superb, we chose tempura vegetables as a starter, great choice. The fish we ordered was great local fish and cooked to perfection. Sorbet was the best. Although restaurant was booked to capacity the staff were very attentive and friendly would return.

The two centuries years old "Mella" restaurant was taken over by Sala family in 1958.

We introduced a new activity, on the Lake of Como, which offered a good link between professional lake fishing and cuisine.

Today, Alessandro, a professional fisherman, keeps these traditions on :he catches fresh-water fish daily, then his wife Rosy proposes it in the menu.

The union between our typical products and the beautiful view of the lake from the first floor of the restaurant, will offer you an unforgettable experience.

Fishing tours and rooms are also available.
