Lake Como - Isola Comacina

In researching for this trip, I read about the only island on Lake Como and the unusual dinner that is served at Locanda dell'Isola Comacina. This was on our agenda for today.

But the best-laid plans do not always work out, do they? We had kind of decided that dinner there wouldn't work because the ferries don't run late enough to get us home. So lunch was our only option. But we got up so late that we weren't ready for a five-course lunch by 1:00 or 1:30.

Plus the fact that the set-price was 60 Euro - this kind of convinced us to skip the meal and just go visit the island. So that is what we did. We caught the ferry to the island and hiked around it for a couple of hours.







Someday we will go back and have a better plan on how the eat the meal too. The exact same meal has been served since 1947 - kind of a tradition.

No restaurant for us this evening. We picked up food to go andf brought it back to enjoy on our balcony/deck and watch the world go by.

Another beautiful day in Paradise!

Hi Nancy, it sure does sound like paradise! It sounds like you are having a great time on your trip. I nearly went to Lake Como (Bellagio) in 2007 but never made it. I would like to someday because it sounds very beautiful.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post about your experiences. Keep on having a wonderful time on your trip!

Hi Nancy, I'm enjoying the vicarious travel with you. Enjoy!


Hi Nancy Anne! Wow, your trip sounds wonderful - all the delicious food and beautiful sites! I really enjoying reading about it :) love PATTI A

Wow, 60 euros! I have always been curious about this island. Glad you got the chance to explore it.


This sounds so interesting, I hope you're able to go back and try dinner sometime (the same menu since 1947 -- it's a wonder the staff doesn't get bored with it!)
