Description: The two centuries years old "Mella" restaurant was taken over by Sala family in 1958. They introduced a new activity, on the Lake of Como, which offers a good link between professional lake fishing and traditional Italian cuisine. Today, Alessandro, a professional fisherman, keeps these traditions on :he catches fresh-water fish daily and his wife Rosy proposes it in the menu. The union between the typical products and the beautiful lake view from the first floor of the restaurant, will offer you an unforgettable experience. Fishing tours and apartments for rent are also available.

Stumbled across this restaurant whilst exploring the area. Sat on a lovely terrace and enjoyed a great lunch. Particular highlights included a fish cake with smoked fish, fried local freshwater shad (Agoni) and a pleasant sparkling rosé. Prices very reasonable and the quality excellent with all the fish very fresh.

We came across this restaurant by chance but were so pleased we had that we revisited during our stay. The food was excellent. The set menu was lovely but also we ate off the main menu. House wine was good. A lovely place to spend an evening.

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.

We stumbled across this restaurant purely by chance when walking between hamlets around Bellagio. This was San Giovanni, which is quite small and boasts a wonderful church. We could hear the happy chatter of guests which led us upstairs Ito a delightful dining room, with wonderful view carol Lake Como. It became clear the specialty here was fish, smoked, fried, grilled, fish bolognese, ravioli and so menu was arge and extremely varied around this theme. (There were non fish dishes too.) We chose the Fish Risotto for two. It was one of the tastiest dishes ever. The Risotto was cooked perfectly and the balance of flavours was wonderful. We both devoured every morsel. The quality of this food was so good, that unusually we chose dessert. The chocolate " "pudding" was terrific, as was the gelato. There was a good wine list - we chose a sparkling rose which was perfect on a very hot day. The service was very good, the food delicious, the ambience delightful and the views, spectacular!

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.
