Eating Out

Fish predominates in the restaurants on Lake Como (as expected). You will also find that polenta; a golden-yellow Italian cornmeal made from ground maize, and also the name given to the savoury cornmeal porridge that’s made from it along with gnocchi; a variety of thick, soft noodle or dumpling which can be made from either potatoe, bread crumbs, ordinary wheat flour or semolina are another two popular dishes to be found in the restaurants of Lake Como. Meat dishes are also on the menus, often pork, beef or chicken, rabbit and venison. You will be spoiled for choice when eating out on Lake Como. From small pizzeria’s to top-end, expensive restaurants, you can be sure to find a place that suits your budget and taste. Most places to eat are open daily. Some may close one day a week but this varies. Times may be susceptible to change depending on the season.
