Surrounded by green, set between the gardens of the neoclassical Villa Melzi and the Romanesque Church of St. Mary Silvio’s is the ideal place for a romantic dinner or a quality meal with Family of Friends.
Both from the elegant porch and from the outdoor pergola under the vines, treat yourself with stunning views over the Lake and the surrounding mountains. Since 1919, year of its foundation, Silvio’s is the place for local fresh Lake fish and has always stuck to a simple display of the fruits of Lake Como waters.
Freshness and traceability of the catch are granted by Silvio and his son Cristian daily, as they both are professional fishermen.
Our cuisine, simple but refined highlights traditional local plates and products, yet trying itself out with new recipes, mostly based on the freshest fish. We boasts anyway a fine offer as an alternative for those who don’t particularly like fish or for special food allergies (please let us know it in advance if you can, so that to satisfy your needs at best!).
One of the aims of the Ponzini Family, running the place for five generations, is protecting and spreading the knowledge for Lake fish and local cuisine.
At this purpose, we frequently organize theme dinner, with cooking demonstrations and tasting menus. We are also proud to show you our kitchen, meet the Chef, let you in our fish laboratory and even follow our to set in or collect their nets from the water.
