Antico Pozzo

Via Enrico Vitali, Bellagio, November 15, 2017—
WHERE TO EAT, in this resort town, where many restaurants are closed for the season? We did a fair amount of research online to no particular advantage, then settled on The Antique Well-head, named for an item of that description in its front terrace — no doubt a fine terrace for sitting, in warmer seasons.

We ordered identically, not from the English-language menu we were given as a matter of course, but from the blackboard by the front door, offering the daily specials. We began with a delicious plate of bresaola, arugula, and shavings of Parmesan cheese — patriotic Italian colors. We dressed the plate with drops of decent olive oil.

Then a plate of tagliatelle with porcini in a cream sauce: perfectly cooked pasta, nicely chosen mushrooms.

Green salad afterward, of course, and for the Contessa, an enormous affogato.
