We ended up eating here 3 different nights during our week in Menaggio. The pastas were homemade and all very good. But their pesto... that's why we kept going back! I think its the best I've ever had. But they don't always make it, so that was disappointing!!

Very welcoming - they always appeared delighted to see us. Great home cooked food but with real quality. No reservations accepted so sometimes difficult to get in but worth persevering . Highly recommended.

We've been in the Osteria for lunch during a visit to Menaggio.
The location was perfect for that warm day, just a little outside the market square.
The service was great, both waiters spoke Italian, English and even French.
The food was well worth the money - we had one Primi from the day menu and a dish from the regular menu. Both were great examples of the well known Italian cuisine and tasted delicious!

No reservations but worth the wait. Service is slow as people tend to come and go in shifts. Food was delicious, typical of the region.

The food is nothing special. I would expect a bit more from the top rated restaurant. The service is very good, very friendly and fast though. The second courses are very big. I would not do the whole Italian thing here. It is too much. We had pasta bolognese and zucchini with shrimps as primary dishes and then pork and veal with vegetables. They were alright.
