Tipical products

Discover the treasures of the lake

Lake Como is well-known for the beauty of its panoramas, villas, and towns. Maybe, not everyone knows that it also praises a rich culinary tradition, which can offer its visitors traditional delicacies that can only be tasted on its shores. 

One of the traditional dishes of the lake, for example, is risotto with perch, a must in local menus. Another unmissable treat is the oil locally extracted from the lakeside trees: a small however peculiar production, made possible thanks to the climate conditions given by the lake. 


A break at the bar

After a day wandering around the beauties of the lake, or for a much-needed break, you must experience a typical Italian tradition: the break at the bar. The bar is the ideal place where to sip on a fresh drink, have a snack, taste a good coffee, or enjoy a moment of relaxation and tranquility in front of the lake.

A well-stocked cellar

Italy is one of the uncontested homelands for wine, which is usually served with a meal during happy hour, and which is also essential during celebrations: the cellar of Locanda Cavallino offers a wide selection of wines, to be tasted alongside our dishes, or to purchase, so as to take home one of the most appreciated Italian delicacies.
