The bistro Il Fornello
Taste the Italian excellence
Quality and research are the hallmarks of this gourmet space on Isola Bella: from the selection of excellent ingredients to the care in the preparation of the dishes, which can be enjoyed on the pleasant terrace with views of the lake.
The bistro Il Fornello Bottega con Cucina came about as a result of the restructuring of the old fishermen’s houses of the ancient town and owes its name to the oven where the nets were baked for fishing.
A restaurant and a shop: the two souls of the bistro give visitors the possibility of choosing the experience they prefer. The ingredients and the authentic flavours, selected with care from among the local producers and the Italian centres of excellence, can be tasted in recipes prepared by chef Francesco Luoni, tried at the counter for a slow pause or purchased to take home as a souvenir of the trip.
The choice of producers has enabled the bistro to join the Alleanza Slow Food dei cuochi, a network that defends food biodiversity all over the world. Il Fornello Bottega con Cucina is also numbered among the over 700 inns, restaurants, bistros and street kitchens that support the small producers who every day choose vegetables, fruit and cheeses produced locally.
