A little of History...

In 1958 Rino Sala, a professional fisherman, and his wife Graziella Raineri, taken over the two centuries years old “ Trattoria Mella”.

They introduced a new activity, on the Lake of Como, which offered a good link between professional lake fishing and cuisine. Today, Alessandro, a professional fisherman, keeps these traditions on. In fact he catches fresh-water fish daily, then his wife Rosy proposes it in their menu.
