It had been a while since I was last here but not much has changed apart from maybe two new faces in the staff. The food is always extremely good (my personal fav is the crespelle with tomato sauce....simple but so tasty) and the service is highly efficient, despite the amount of people. The place was completely packed at 8pm... More

There are two floors, the upper one is definitely nicer and with a warm mountain feeling , the... More

I heard many times about this place I always thought is the typical turistic place Actually I have to admit that I really liked it Unfortunately I did not eat so much so I could not even try the polenta but the paradello and other tipical stuff we tried were good and corect prices so suggested!!

Been to this place several times during autumn and spring. Menu varies according to the season. During autumn you can find dishes with fresh local porcini mushrooms! Il vino della casa, red wine, is very good, from the Piemonte area. The menu is not composed by light dishes, so don't order from appetizer to dessert in once, you might find... More

Oh dear. We visited this restaurant last night during a long weekend in Bellagio. Let me try to start with something positive, the views from the mountain over the lake are beautiful, but other than this the restaurant was truly awful. On arrival the place has a strange atmosphere, in fairness I think it is a locals hideout, and if... More

Better be hungry to enjoy the excellent local food, including, of course, the polenta. I had a mixed plate. You will have to drive a few miles to climb up to the "Chalet Gabriele" but it really worth it : you are in the mountains with a wonderful view over Lake Como. The atmosphere was a bit strange :) but... More

Situated up a windy hill overlooking Lake Como, just above the town of Bellagio, this restaurant offers amazing views. Very popular, recommend booking. Decor feels a little bit like an old swiss chalet, but you are up in the mountains so expect it. Eat everything that you can, and make sure you sample Polenta. The food is superb. Highly recommend.

One of us had trekked right to the top of the hill past Chalet Gabriele. We drove up and were taken up for the gorgeous views. On the way back we stopped here to try their local food as the family had suggested they have some local meats - we had venison and horse sausages, grilled mushrooms, spinach and lentils.... More

I have tried a couple of dishes in Chalet Gabriele and all of them were great. Most of the time it is pretty crowded, so if you'd like a table at the windows you should give them a call. The food is very authentic with mushrooms, polenta and local meat like deer and horse. I'll be back next year!
