This is a place likely to be overlooked, as most cars will speed by and most people will be walking beside the lake on the opposite side of the road. But make no mistake, this is a seriously homely and quality place. I started with the fish speciality of the lake, comprising a collection of fish items from the lake alongside. I followed this with seafood linguine, which is one of my favorites. It was high quality, home-cooked, and tasty. My wife had the starter of prawn cocktail, traditional but nicely presented. For mains she had the fish risotto, which was very good. We had a mixed salad to accompany. Sitting beside the lake on a warm Spring evening, eating local cuisine, home-cooked with love, listening to the local conversation buzz, was most enjoyable. All reasonably priced and all worthwhile.

We were on a long walk near our hotel on Lake Como. We decided to stop here and have a late lunch. The food and service were both excellent. We highly recommend it.

We stayed next door to this restaurant and have visited every day - in fact we will be so sad to leave Griante very much so because of this restaurant.

It is a family run business and the food and service are wonderful - enjoy the beautiful outlook in comfort!

Staying in the centre of Lake Como, in the Bellagio area, and looking far a family run, traditional Italian restaurant. The Ristorante Isole Belle, situated a few minutes from the car ferry stop at Cadenabbia (turn left and its on the right) is just what you are looking for. The chef is the father in law, the padrone is the son in law and the staff his sons. The food is fresh and locally sourced chosen from a menu and daily specials - all reasonably priced as is the wine. You can chose to sit outside with a view over the lake or inside in a delightfully decorated dining room. You will be assured of a warm welcome and a traditional Italian family meal.
