Mountain Hut Restaurants

Once you go Lake Como, you never go back. Just ask George and Amal Clooney, who religiously decamp to their Italian villa each summer. They’re clearly onto something, and you should be too. These are the hotspots you need on your Lake Como list.

Don’t worry, you’ll get plenty of beach ideas all summer, but we’re in a mountain frame of mind this week. Part of the reason is that we know you’ll travel anywhere for food, even if that entails climbing a mountain for it. These spots are worth it for those views and the gourmet delight that awaits you at the top.

There are some pairings that will just always go better together. One of those pairings is a serving of apple strudel and a fantastic view of the Alps. The best place to experience it is in a mountain hut restaurant. Here are a few of our favorites that we know you’ll enjoy, too.

San Brite

You can find dishes like trout and spaghetti pino mugo on the tasting menu, each with a wine pairing.
