Everything we had was fresh and wonderful. Family feeling with the owners daughter serving us explaining how her father is the fisherman bringing "lavarello" to the table. This mild tasty fish is only available in Northern Italy and parts of Canada. Try the seafood risotto...More

This is our favorite restaurant in Bellagio. The dishes are incredibly delicious and the daily menu is the way to go: appetizer, first course, second course, dessert and coffee--all of them being weekly specials based on their fresh catches that week! The authenticity and at-home...More

The two centuries years old "Mella" restaurant was taken over by Sala family in 1958.

We introduced a new activity, on the Lake of Como, which offered a good link between professional lake fishing and cuisine.

Today, Alessandro, a professional fisherman, keeps these traditions on :he catches fresh-water fish daily, then his wife Rosy proposes it in the menu.

The union between our typical products and the beautiful view of the lake from the first floor of the restaurant, will offer you an unforgettable experience.

Fishing tours and rooms are also available.
