“Lovely views, great service”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Unfortunately on the night we ate here the weather wasn't kind to us. It was cool, rainy, stormy and blustery. We still chose to sit in the outside area which was enclosed with plastic roll down blinds, so we were dry. They also had heaters so it was warm. The food was OK but the waitstaff were fantastic. Really friendly and helpful and provided genuine service with a smile. This place gets booked out early, particularly on a Saturday night, so definitely make a reservation. I'd also not leave it to eat here on your last night (as we did) as you may too be unlucky with weather and it's really a much better experience to eat here when the weather is fine.

“romantic and great food”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Lovely spot with excellent service, nice views of the lake across to Varenna and very good food. Price was reasonable and wine selection of Piemonte barolos was quite good. Misto di Lago is a great starter. Only criticism would be the mosquitos were a bother and they didn't have any citronella candles or any way to address them. But such is the risk with outdoor seating next to a charming little park and the lake.

“Wedding Meal - 4th July 2014 (36 guests)”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This is one of the most beautiful places I have been the views from around the grounds are to die for. The staff are so friendly, so accommodating. I found La Punta myself on trip advisor last year and decided to email them regarding my wedding meal. Communication was really good, I felt relieved that I had found somewhere I could trust with something so special to me.

We got married at Villa Balbianello at 3pm, we hired a boat (Menaggio boat Company) to take all guests back to the hotel (Excelsior Splendide Bellagio) where we had Prosecco chilling. We then made our way to La Punta (6 minute walk / 2 minute taxi ride), and had the most amazing meal. We had booked one long table along the Lake front. The food was so fresh and all of my guests commented on how fantastic the venue/ the food and the wine was! All the food came out at the same time, everyones food was hot, and all the food was delicious. I honestly dont have a bad word to say. So perfect.

I have attached a couple of pictures.

La Punta if you read this.... THANK YOU so much for everything, you are amazing! We will return xx

“Great View, GOOD food”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Went for dinner. Had wonderful view of sunset over the mountains to go with a very good meal. Appetizer "Tris" (three kinds of pasta) was especially delightful. Wine steward very knowledgeable and happy to help. Staff in general was very good.
