Ristorante Barchetta, Bellagio
Tel: 39 031 951 389
Concierge.com's insider take:
Bellagio is the most popular resort on the most popular lake, which makes its lack of truly superlative restaurants doubly surprising. Luckily, this cozy corner joint tucked into the heart of the historic center offers a solid meal in festive surroundings. Even though the restaurant is steps from the port, the menu steers clear of seafood and focuses more on seasonal ingredients: risotto with pistachios and hazelnuts, ravioli stuffed with goat cheese in a pear sauce, or the more traditional rosemary-scented roasted lamb.
Open noon to 2:30 pm and 7 to 10 pm, late April through October.
