Spending a little down time outside Milan is one of my favorite things to do in the very warm month of August. I went back to “Bellagio” again …Lake Como is always charming and refreshing! Yes, I do fall in love with this little town …colorful flowers… amazing breeze… and a little restaurant called “Bilagus”. It is a tiny place with large terrace filled with dining tables and tourists from everywhere. We drove there on Sunday… a bit difficult to find a parking space, but we eventually did. It was almost 1pm already, the restaurant was packed but we asked a table for 2 in the shade. Fortunately, there was a table available in the corner for us. The weather was very nice… we had a perfect lunch, started with “antipasti” (or appetizer), mozzarella and tomatoes… great with olive oil and a tiny bit of oregano. We skipped “Primo” (or first dish), which normally are pasta or rice, and jumped right into “Secondo” (second dish), which are meat … chicken, beef, pork, fish, etc. We decided to try their special dish— fish steak and deep fried fish fillet with some side dishes, grilled vegetables … it was perfect, not too heavy and not too light… Summer lunch couldn’t be better. We sat and talked… just enjoyed our relaxing afternoon. Lovely town, wonderful restaurant —Bilagus.
I have to say it is one of the best restaurants with fish dish as thier specialty… fresh from the lake, Italian style, great taste. I can go back again and again.
We were having lunch on the big terrace… while tourists walking up and down the stair, very lively, very unique place.
It was a great place… we had a wonderful lunch, and nice walk along Lake Como… I’m still staying in the mountain around that area… will be spending vacation time until next week … loving it!
