Only in Como...
"I love Lo Storico, a family-run seafood restaurant. It’s centrally located and has an authentic vintage look. It’s the place for the best fish dinner."
"One of my favourite local excursions is to Val d’Intelvi, a valley located about 15km from Como. I’d recommend using an e-bike to reach it, as it’s a great route. Or you can ride up to Pigra, and then on to Baita di Orimento, where you can enjoy another amazing view and some local food."
Trattoria del Porto
"Another restaurant I recommend is Trattoria del Porto – it’s very inexpensive, a real local’s place. After a 20-minute drive from Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como, walk down a footpath to the lake and you’ll find this small, family-run trattoria serving typical dishes from the region."
