This restaurant is far up in the hills but a real find. The restaurant is beautiful and has amazing views of the lake and the hills. It is ran by a lovely family and the food was the best we had all holiday. Worth every penny.

The food was exquisite! The warm bread was a telling start to the meal. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the desert was cooked in front of us. Coupled with the stunning sunset, it was a surreal experience.

Wow. Me and my girlfriend decided to go here on a recommendation. It has to be the best restaurant we have visited and not just in Italy. The food was outstanding and the vibe and staff of this family run restaurant was just top class. The views are second to none but even more the hospitality and friendly owners and staff just left us speechless. We were staying down the hill and so as not to walk back in the dark they even dropped us home. I have joined trip advisor just to write this review as If you ever visit como and menaggio area this is a true gem. We will be back for more next year without doubt

Thank you to all at locanda la Volpe

I'm the sixth time in Mennagio. I heard a lot about Locanda la Volpe.
But I never managed to eat at this place.
This time I called them and it turned out to be a fantastic place.
From the center of Mennagio it is about 10 minutes by car.
As I always sleep in Plesio for me it was about 2 minutes. It was very windy so we sat inside. The interior design is perfect as it should be for a real Italian restaurant.
The service is incredibly fast and nice. We ordered prosecco, sirloin beef,
a'la volpe pasta and lobster pasta. Everything was delivered very quickly.
We have not eaten so delicious dinner in all of Italy. It was delicious. We will be back tomorrow to admire the views and try sometthing moore!!!!

When we arrived we immediately received a very kind and happy welcome from all the staff. We are on holiday in Italy and found the restaurant via Trip Advisor and it also had high reviews previously. We found it highly useful that the waiting staff were bilingual and could speak very good English. We had a three course meal with each course having plenty of time for us to have conversation and enjoy the amazing views our seats gave us. Throughout the evening we witnessed staff giving all other diners such a high standard of care and walking around with smiles on their faces was very nice to see

The starters we had were presented to us around 10-15 minutes after we ordered along with waiting staff ensuring we were happy and had plenty to drink whilst we sat in the hot sun. We were also presented with freshly baked warm bread along with a homemade topping with olives and other ingredients, which we all enjoyed.

Once we had finished our starters, we had another rough 10 minutes to talk before our main courses arrived, and they were definitely worth waiting for. I personally received the fish of the day (Similar fish to a cod, can't remember it's Italian name)

Once we'd all finished our main courses we were presented with the desert menu and our money was not wasted. We were presented with picture perfect deserts with amazing taste

Our night was not disappointing at all, we left whilst shaking hands with all staff along with leaving a generous tip for our friendly night entertainers
