We had a dinner by the lake at Sottovento. They have a menu with a lots of choices. Especially if you want to try Como fishes I would recommend it. We enjoyed our dinner and the service was good.

Excellent location on the lake, I recommend booking a table. Food was very nice, I would have given it 5 stars if the squid had not been quite salty.
