My dad and I are both in need of the best of the best restaurants in the lake como area. Any price and anywhere!
One of our favorites is Locanda dell'lsola Comacina. Go for lunch and it will be beautiful. Definitely book on the terrace. If you hire a private boat and can arrange it, combine your lunch with a visit to Villa Balbianello. The gardens are open to the public, but if you want to visit the villa, you must make make prior arrangements.
Have a wonderful time, I'm envious.
