Restaurants & bars

With a contemporary design and undulating structures, the breakfast room is a chic place to start the day. Pick from a buffet of freshly baked bread and pastries, muffins and buttery brioche, along with platters of seasonal fruit, eggs every which way, cereals, yoghurts and jams. Hot dishes can be cooked to order, all washed down with aromatic coffee, teas and fresh fruit juices. On sultry Italian mornings, head to the veranda for al fresco dining – served with lake views. Later in the day, executive chef Paolo Favalli takes the helm in the kitchen at BBay Bistro, rustling up Mediterranean-inspired delicacies, seafood dishes and light salads, some of which can be ordered straight to your outdoor cabana. The hotel’s Il Rivale is a traditional osteria housed in a recently renovated 17th-Century palazzo, offering a tantalising glimpse of the lake.
