“L’Escale” was the first Fondue & Wine Bar to open on Lake Como. It’s a restaurant with a difference, a place to enjoy the singular pleasure of an informal meal of meat and fish fondues and grills, accompanied by the best Italian regional wines. The cooking takes place in the centre of the table. Delicious sauces and coloured sea salts (which you may buy to repeat the experience at home) blend on the plate to create new and original flavours.... An authentic creative ritual where the meal becomes an occasion for fun, sharing good food in a spirit of warm conviviality.

In summer supper is served on the lakeside terrace, while in the cooler autumn evenings we move indoors to the cantina, carved into the rock with bare brick walls and wine casks for tables, with more than 400 fine labels selected from every region.
