The setting is wonderful, climate divine, but food was not quite on the mark for a Michelin restaurant. Our first dish of Sicilian red prawns with guacamole ice cream, coconut cream and cuttlefish waffles was exquisite and whet our appetite for what was to come, but nothing else quite delivered. The foie gras terrine was disappointing, celery root dumplings were gluey and tasteless, the fish was overcooked and tough, as was the veal. The dessert somewhat made up for this with a couple of gastronomic surprises, but overall this was a bit of a let down.

Had dinner on 10/08/17 and food was not worthy of its Michelin star. We went 2 years ago and it was great so much so that we decided to return this year. What a shame we did...as the food was truly disappointing. The dishes were not freshly prepared but reheated, bread was stale, peach Melba was made not with fresh peaches, etc. We will not return again.

Special treat and we booked three of us in for dinner
We all went for the tasting menu @ €170 per head ex drinks
Spectacular view of the lake and the food was exquisite
Alaskan crab, Foie Gras, pasta stuffed with peacock breast and served with a peacock broth;
Crispy salmon or sea bass, slow cooked pork, two deserts including home made ice cream made with liquid nitrogen!
Staff were great
The wine list is a Big Boy's toy box!
Total cost with top was €1,050: €350 per head and worth every sous for the theatre of the ice cream making alone !
It deserves its Michelin Star

I was a little apprehensive about booking this restaurant, as often we have been disappointed with Michelin Star experiences, but not here. We were welcomed warmly by Katerina & Daniel and made to feel completely at home as we drank in the wonderful views across the lake and the beautifully set table. The Degustation Menus at 170 Euros per person are the way to experience the full mastery of the kitchen and are great value. After discussion with Daniel who accommodated our dietary requirements, my husband chose the modern Molecular Menu, whilst I chose the more traditional "By Hand" menu. Both Menus are 7 courses, so between us we tasted 14 different dishes, all of which were very good, some were out of this world. What sets this restaurant apart however is the professionalism of the staff. We really appreciated their attention to detail, their awareness of our needs and the gentleness and kindness of the service. The Sommelier was a true professional who made great suggestions. The staff are obviously well trained and take great pride in their work. An unforgettable dining experience in beautiful Bellagio.

This is arguably one of the most spectacular settings for a dinner I have ever experienced. Yes we lucked the weather, a beautiful late June sunset overlooking Lake Como on a picture perfect day certainly helped. Given this is a Michelin Star restaurant there are two things you expect, outstanding food and a price to match. The staff were not only professional but extremely knowledgeable, the service was brilliant and the setting well picture perfect. Yes Michelin Star is always about the food and all I can say is it exceeded my expectations on every level. This restaurant ticks all the boxes.
