Description: The staff of "Crotto dei Pescatori" is pleased to invite you to visit one of the most evocative locations on Lake Como. Staying in our comfortable rooms or at the restaurant, in the midday brightness, when the sun brushes the mountaintops, or in the pink light of sunset, when the breeze calms and the last sunbeams are reflected in the lake, you can relax and taste the delicacies that our Chef will be happy to prepare for you. The lake will charm and delight you.

At Como we weren't expecting a food scene to the likes of Florence. We arrived at this serene lakeside restaurant. Service was warm and welcoming. The scene was unbeatable.

We took the house special porcini pasta and it was fabulous. We also did a fish dish which was great as well.

our land lady recommended this restaurant and booked a terrace table for us for lunch. the view is superb. the food prices are moderate and the servings are very good. we ordered too much so we brought one meal home and I have just eaten it for dinner. locals like the place as do tourists. there is an inside dining room as well as the terrace. Important.. parking is available at the door, very unusual around here. recommended.

We stayed here for two nights earlier this month. The setting and view are fabulous!

We had a little trouble finding the hotel from the road, but the signs helped. There is a small parking area next to the hotel, which is perched right over the lake.

The owner of the hotel was very helpful and available. Our room was clean and comfortable with a very large modern bathroom and good air conditioning, as well as a balcony which opened directly upon the lake with a view of Villa Balbienello.

We ate both nights in the restaurant and the food was really good. Standout dishes: an absolutely delectable pappardelle with wild mushrooms that we had both nights as it was so good (another reviewer here posted a photo of this dish); pan fried lakefish with lemon and capers (yum); pasta with hot pepper. On our second night, when the weather cleared, we were able to sit outside for dinner on the terrace and enjoy the views and the food. A good breakfast, also served on the terrace, was included in the rate.

The hotel has a dock and lounge chairs so you can swim in the lake and sunbathe. Also a small bar, which was popular on the Saturday night (as was the restaurant). It was the night of Italy's quarter-final match in the Euro Cup and there was a large screen TV playing the game, to the delight of our teen (alas, Italy lost).

The hotel is convenient for a visit to Bellagio as it is a short drive away. The drive on arrival to Lezzeno from Como was not to be forgotten: stupendous lake views around every corner but a very narrow, winding road, be sure the driver keeps eyes fixed on the road and not the lake!

A great stay.

This hotel is totally worth getting sick from the windy roads that get you there. It's located right on the lake and has it's own bar, restaurant, and a boat rental place where you don't even need a boat license to rent.

Pulling up, I wondered if it could fit the four of us travelers but the person that checked us in showed us to our room which had comfortable beds AND AN AIR CONDITIONER!! He answered all of our questions of what to do and sent us over to the boat harbor. Luckily, my boyfriend used to have his Florida boating license so we were comfortable renting a boat. The drive around the lake was beautiful and after getting car sick, was the perfect location right next to the hotel. For dinner we ate SO MUCH food but everything was delicious!! The service was excellent and because we were guests at the hotel and made a reservation, our seats were right at the edge of the patio.

We may have only been there for one night but after the driving that we did that entire day, boating and dinner (with excellent food) all in the same location could not have been more perfect.

I would love to come back and stay at this hotel for more than one night... I just don't if I'd be able to handle the winding roads to get there.
