Travelista73: Magical Dining at Il Gatto Nero on Lake Como

June 16, 2011

The pleasure of savouring an exquisite lunch while accompanied by a breathtaking view over Lake Como, or the poetry of a candle lit dinner in a welcoming yet exclusive setting is the allure of Il Gatto Nero restaurant.

Perched on the hills above Cernobbio, this local jewel prides itself on being a recognised, sought-after destination for many international guests and VIPs due to its fine dining, its wine cellar and to the friendly welcome extended by owner Fausto Fontana. In this warm, welcoming setting, it is easy to come across international actors, sports stars and key business personalities. Last night actor George Clooney and his lady love, Elisabetta Canalis, dined there.

The indoor rooms and the wonderful balcony provide the perfect setting to enjoy the typical dishes offered at Il Gatto Nero. Specialties include filetto con aceto balsamico (filet mignon with balsamic vinegar), pappardelle al ragù di selvaggini (pasta with wild game sauce), and lake fish. Make sure you save room for the warm chocolate torte with its delicious liquid chocolate center.

A truly enchanting experience, Il Gatto Nero provides a stunning backdrop for a truly romantic dining experience.
