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.

Walked down to the hamlet of San Giovanni and was lucky enough to get a table upstairs. Ristorante Mella is very lovely, the decoration is tasteful, the service is good and the menu is full of local fish caught in the Lake Como.
The cost of a good meal for four people was reasonable and the wine was good.
I would recommend booking a table and Mella is closed in the middle of the afternoon.
Not far away from a really good beach if you do have to wait for the place to reopen.
Had a very good night and would eat there again if i ever have the opportunity.

SUCH a good meal! My family and I have been going to center of Bellagio for dinner most nights but it was so over priced and the food wasn’t that impressive so we tried this restaurant that was just up the road from us and thankgod we went there it was fantastic.
We got an entree of 7 different fishes and it was the perfect amount for the 4 of us. I got fagotini filled with cheese and vegetables and finally a restaurant has given us more than 4 pieces of pasta it was wonderful. We also had the gnochetti and it had a lot of garlic and butter it was mouth watering.
To finish we had 3 desserts. the creme brûlée was beautiful and so creamy, the white chocoate and peach cake was easily the best dessert and the chocolate pudding was good but not as good as the others.
Very happy with the service and the whole experience

We had 30€ tasting menu for lunch which was nothing special. We were expecting more for food. Service was also slow. Can’t recommend.

We tried around 10 restaurants in San Giovanni/Bellagio area and this was one of the best experiences. We were lucky to get the last available table on monday evening. Table reservation is strongly recommended as we saw many diners turned down at the door. Amazing flavours, nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

This little restaurant, popular with locals and just a minute from the San Giovanni ferry wharf, was an unexpected find. We sat upstairs near the window overlooking the lake and dined on local specialties, including freshly caught fish from the lake (lavarello) and a lovely pork dish. The wine list is not extensive but included some lovely wines from the region. The deserts were very good and the service provided by Mella, the owner was friendly, with good explanations of the menu. A place definitely to return to.
