The only restaurant on Lake Como where you can taste the focaccia with cheese

The only restaurant on Lake Como where you can enjoy cheese focaccia.
What can I say: the focaccia I tasted at Portovino in Colico brought back old childhood memories. The flavour, texture and cooking of this focaccia fully reflect the focaccia tradition.

We called a few days before to book: on their website we saw that they offer 6 types of filling for the focaccia.
We chose the classic but, seeing these large trays pass with the other fillings as well, we decided that we will be back soon together to taste them all.
The focaccia is served on a baking tray and, for two people, is really abundant. However, we have not advanced any 😉

The restaurant is located in a wonderful location: right on the Lungolago di Colico and, after dinner, in fact, we took the opportunity to take a walk nearby.

We chose this restaurant in Colico because it is the only one on Lake Como to offer focaccia and our expectations were not disappointed: I recommend everyone to try it!

The staff suggested that we always book in order to be sure to find fresh focaccia.

Well done!

Cheese focaccia by the lake

Focaccia of course!

Compulsory stop: tables overlooking the lake, mountains and lots of delicious focaccia (various choices)! Absolutely to try

The Portovino focaccia is delicious

It was a nice surprise to eat cheese focaccia on Lake Como: I didn’t expect it. Nothing to envy of the cheese focaccia that I have eaten many times in Liguria. The location is beautiful. The owner was kind and also offered us coffee and digestive. See you soon Matteo and thanks for everything.
