Lido di Sala Comacina (gia Pro-Loco - literally 'for the locals')

You can't get more local than this - seated outdoors under the plane trees on white-marble gravel to delight in wood-fire pizza with carafe wineor an ice-cold draught (spina) beer, or, more simply to enjoy a late aperitivo as the sun sets like golden taels upon the surrounding mountains in a vision of glorious prosperity ...  Oh!  To relax with the locals in this subliminal setting!

Pro-loco is managed as a concession from the local council and offers friendly relaxed atmosphere.  Order at the bar.

Open daily and available year-round for private functions
