At Ristorante Blu, my second stop, I was welcomed on the beautiful terrace looking right out over the lake by a delicious charcuterie platter and a glass of local white wine. I was feeling fairly full by then so decided to take a break for a walk in the Parco delle Camelie, just ten minutes away.
My third stop was in Piazza Grande: the Gran Caffè Verbano, a typical local spot for those in search of a tasty and sophisticated menu of the day or a delicious aperitivo. I tucked into a red wine risotto to end all risottos! Full of flavour, cooked to perfection and plenty of it! To go with the risotto, I was offered a glass of Merlot that was the perfect match.
