Cafe Il Balcone sul Lago … best views ever?

When I visited: September 2015

Location: Lake Como (Brunate)

Rating in the Michelin Guide: Not rated in the Guide

Dining Owl Hoot rating: 3/5

What to wear: Could go casual

Ambience: Quiet, still, stunning

Course of the meal: Cernobbio panini

If I could change one thing: Slightly bigger menu


Most restaurants in Lake Como will have a great view, but this one takes the biscotti … I walked to it with my partner Owl from the top of the funicular railway from Como to Brunate and the views were worth the climb. The atmosphere is very still and quiet and peaceful, and we enjoyed a glass each of Viognier white wine with a Cernobbio panini (ham, mozzarella and mayonnaise on ciabatta).
