Let me start by saying that i am quite partial when it comes to Italian food mainly because it is relatively simple and generally good value for money. The La Goletta restaurant easily ticked all the boxes. Located by the pool at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni it is a relaxed but fine dining establishment. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and had a good grasp of both the menu and the wine list. The ambience and views on a warm summer’s evening are magical and the chef produced some of the best pasta that I have ever had. Their wine list comprised a good selection of quality Italian wines along with some nice French wines and it was not hard to find a suitable wine to match your food choice or price range.
I would recommend a visit whenever you are heading to Bellagio just to try their pastas.

This was the cherry on the top during our stay in Como. Bellagio exudes luxury and class, even better than Monaco if I may say. And to live this true Atmosphere I definitely recommend to have dinner at the Villa Serbelloni. The view from the terrace on the lake was breathtaking. The food was yummy and the wide range of desserts made us to try at least 4. I loved how on the way to the bathroom, pictures from previous guests were hanged on the corridor like the Kennedys, Edgar Allan Poe, etc...

The second restaurant in any grand hotel is in an awkward place. It must be good, but not so good as to detract from the main game. And so it is here. At times it lives up to its €30/main accolades. But mostly it fails.

My pet hate is having to top up my own wine. Oh, and no implements, no finger bowl for a large bowl of Moules borders on neglectful. The pasta with pesto was so overburdened with all things basil as to be cloying and grainy.

The ravioli was pleasant, the minestrone ok (sans pasta), and the veal saltimbocca was good (albeit skimpy).

The pannacotta was delightful, but the chocolate gateaux was dry and obviously yesterday's bake. The tiramisu was rubbish.

The space is awkward, faux marine/boaty, outdated and in need of an update. An elegant wooden Bertrand it ain't.

Staff are slightly "forced pleasant", not natural or effusive.

This is an outstanding restaurant by all counts , The quality of the food is fabulous and outstanding. The view is mesmerizing and and service was attentive and multi lingual.
We ordered the lasagna and the veal along with the burata . all items were amazing. This restaurant is in a 5 star hotel so pricing is not cheap.
strongly recommended as an amazing place to have lunch on a clear day.

This restaurant is in the luxury Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni but provides reasonably priced high quality Italian cuisine in a beautiful setting. Service is friendly and efficient and the food well prepared, though most wine prices are too high for the place (it shares the same wine list as the expensive Michelin starred restaurant in the same hotel)
Definitely recommended!
