Top 5 Luxury Restaurants with Spectacular Views of Lake Como

July 28, 2023

At 1,345 feet deep, Italy’s Lake Como is one of the deepest in Europe. Its depth isn’t relegated simply to vertical feet, however, since the area is also deeply stunning. It is also brimming with activities and attractions for everyone such as museums, hiking trails, stunning churches like the Como Cathedral and a host of enticing restaurants.

Exploring fine dining options in various destinations is always exciting. To make choices easier, we have highlighted five of the most prestigious restaurants with Lake Como views for your dining pleasure:

Al Veluu

Al Veluu is a favorite of many international celebrities and royals. It is an exquisite restaurant with stunning views of Lake Como. This restaurant grows as much of its own ingredients as it can so offerings are as fresh as possible.

Must-try: Beef carpaccio with nava black truffle; beef rolls “Don Antonio”; Chateaubriand grille mix; fresh catch of the day and walnut cake for dessert.

If you decide to stay in Lake Como for part of your vacation, Villa Imperatore is one of Lake Como’s largest properties. It is located at the sleepy lakeside village of Blevio, under two miles from the bustling and lively center of Como. Its impeccably manicured lawns and vegetation area provide a space of calmness. You can also explore the lake’s picturesque villages as the Villa has its own boat docked at its jetty.

Locanda La Tirlindana

Restaurants don’t get much closer to lapping lakeside waters than the quaint, family-owned Locanda La Tirlindana. Its cobblestoned terrace is a delight. Cloth-draped tables directly across from a mountain backdrop with boats and ducks floating yards away lulls you into a relaxing reverie.

Must-try: Grilled octopus with black potatoes and cream; ravioli with mascarpone cheese and lemon; beef fillet with gorgonzola sauce; and homemade peach sorbet for dessert.
