Cernobbio by Jelena - Lago di Como

Cernobbio by Jelena

LIDO: glass restaurant

This is a veeeeeeeeery BEAUTIFUL restaurant at the main square in Cernobbio, by the lake side, where the boat station, heroes monument and children playground are. :) It's quite small, but impossible not to detect as it is the only restaurant/bar over there! :) It is almost entirely glass-walled, with wonderful overview on the square, lake and everything around. You have a feeling that you're outdoors. They have a good heating system and you won't be cold even in winter, although glass is not so thick.
Behind the restaurant there are swimming pools. In winter - ice rinks as they're frozen! :-)
The food is YUMMY!!! They have the very best calzone I have ever had, and try it with aromatic olive oil with added hot peppers (olio al peperoncino).
Note: in winter they might close for a few months! Usually they are closed in November, December and January. BUMMER!!!

Address: Piazza Risorgimento 5/a, 22012 Cernobbio (CO)

Comparison: about average

Directions: Right next to the boat station on the main square in Cernobbio, by the lake, all in glass, you can't miss it.

La Cascata: L'orrido di Nesso - La Cascata

Family-run restaurant, pizzeria, bar, bed&breakfast on several floors on the cliffs above Como lake in Nesso, overlooking the stunning l'orrido di Nesso (sort of a gorge) and the lake itself. The owners are extremely kind, friendly and hospitable and the food is delicious!

Favorite Dish: Calzone!

Address: Piazza Roma, 10 - Nesso (CO)

Comparison: about average

Directions: Follow the right side of the lake going upwards from Como towards Bellagio, and you can't miss it, it's on the road in Nesso.

Lago di Como by Jelena

San Bernardo: San Bernardo

A very nice and cozy place near Laglio, on the left bank of the Como lake. It's decorated in the old countryside style, with wooden ceiling and rustic ornaments and items. The food is great (delicious calzone liscio), but the staff is not the kindest in the world. The cashier is even rude, vile and very Nazi in her disposition. However, the atmosphere is pleasant. You might also run onto George Clooney, as his villa in Laglio is just a couple of hundreds of meters away. :)
Note: It's closed on Mondays.

Address: Via Regina Vecchia, 131 - 22010 Carate Urio (CO)

Comparison: about average

Directions: Follow the street along the lakeside upwards from Como and once you pass Laglio you'll see on the left side in green letters RISTORANTE and PIZZERIA inscriptions. It's right in front of the boat station (imbarcazione/navigazione).

Cernobbio by Jelena

Tom & Jerry: ristorante, pizzeria & risotteria

This is another splendid pizzeria in Cernobbio. Its location is not spectacular - it's right on the main road to Como facing the street, but they have a very delicious calzone! Odd enough, Cernobbio has the best pizza's I've ever had! This is the second place I tried in Cernobbio, and it was splendid again! They are not limited to pizza only, they have an exuberant menu of Italian food, they are also specialised in rice, but I haven't tried any of that. The interior is lovely, all in glass looking on the back yard. And the service is FAST!

Address: Via Regina 33/b, 22012 Cernobbio (CO)

Comparison: about average

Directions: Go up the lake from Como, and once you reach Cernobbio you'll see it on the road on the left side, there is no way to miss it.

Bellagio by Jelena - Lago di Como

Bellagio by Jelena

(I forgot!): Bellagio Downtown

This wonderful restaurant is in the very heart of Bellagio, on the main street (where navigazione ferry station is), right under Villa Serbelloni hotel, with a spectacular view over the lake! The sun is there all day long and you can enjoy yourself under the shade of trees.
Pity I forgot the name, shame on me...

Bellagio by Jelena

LA PUNTA: LA PUNTA - Bellagio

LA PUNTA is the only restaurant in this part of Bellagio. It has a splendid view on the lake and the park in front, with lovely spring foliage.
Staff is very kind and pro, they speak several languages (English, German, French...)
Menus are delicious!

Favorite Dish: Try antipasto di lago, a starter with freshwater fish of the lake, delicious!
Then, gnochetti al gorgonzola or tagliattelle al salmone (I never know how to spell tagliatelle right!?)
Don't forget limoncello!

Address: Via E. Vitali 19, 22021 Bellagio (CO), Italy

Directions: The "peak" of the peninsula, where the harbour and park plateau are, above the beach.

Como by Jelena

forgot the name, shame on me!: Boat café in Como

In the Como downtown there is this cute and nice boat café, where they serve very delicious ice cream! It´s also a perfect place to hide when there is the rain, as it was in my case. But don´t go there when the lake is wavy if you suffer from sea nausea, as it shakes a lot! :)
Sorry for the horrible photo, but on a rainy afternoon this was the best I could do...

Address: on the lakeside in the downtown

Cavallo Bianco: Cavallo Bianco in Bellano

This is an excellent restaurant in Bellano (about 30km north of Lecco) on the lakeside. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is very good. But the food is the best! They have one of the best pizzas I've ever had! Number one is that calzone from Cernobbio, and number two is this great pizza in Cavallo Bianco (White Horse).
