We stopped earlier in the day for coffee and had a good experience so we figured we would come back for dinner. Bad choice. Lasagna appetizer was absolute mush; I could not distinguish between the noodles the sauce or the cheese in either consistency or flavor. Wife had seafood combo and spent the night bent over in the loo. Again,... More

Ate here twice in our 4 nights here, the first time on recommendation from our hotel. Frequented by locals and tourists, La Conca (its new name) has a lovely terrace plus a plain inside, and excellent pizzas, pastas and fish, with a southern Italian touch. The sea bass (branzino) is notable in particular. The desserts are awesome - try the... More

The staff was very kind and friendly. I had two over travelled little boys who were tired, they were patient and alot of fun. The food was fresh and very good. The chef had disco on in the kitchen....relaxed environment in the midst of the hustle and bustle of traveling.

We dined here on the night that Iceland beat England in the 'Euros'....well at least we enjoyed our meal.! It's nothing to look at from the street outside but the view from the terrace at the back across the lake is great. Very friendly and accommodating staff, good reasonably priced standard Italian menu and lots of atmosphere generated by the... More

Popped in for a quick lunch while waiting for our transfer to Milan only to discover an excellent little restaurant with a lovely view from the terrace surrounded by the scent of flowering jasmine. Food was very good indeed and the staff were lovely. Not a great street frontage but DO give it a try. You won't regret it.

We loved popping in to La Conca for breakfast (wonderful coffee and yummy croissants), for dinner (tasty pasta) and most of all for a glass or three of Prosecco with nibbles on our way to and from various destinations. The staff were so friendly that by the end of our holiday they felt like friends. And you just couldn't get... More

A no fuss, no frills restaurant. The menu is similar to most of the other restaurants in menaggio but at half the price. The view from the balcony is truly amazing although you wouldn't know it from the entrance. The service was good and friendly. This was by far the best restaurant in menaggio.
