Friendly staff, great atmosphere, clearly a popular destination with queues outside. If you're looking for pasta and pizza don't look here, this is no frills but authentic Italian food. Good place if you like polenta. Very enjoyable dinner!

You may have to wait and the menu may be limited but worry not the food is excellent. The service is not great but there's no need to hurry!

I simply can't understand how this can be rated the best restaurant in Menaggio.

The menu is fairly limited in choice. Whilst this is often a good thing as it enables kitchens to really perfect a dish, none of the six people at our table would say their dish was good. The salmon was overlooked, the pasta heavy and stodgy, the vegetables were cold (on all dishes that had them) and the polenta lacked any flavor. To be fair, the rabbit was very very good, and the service was very friendly.

Perhaps the restaurant is a victim of its own success and the are not equipped to deal with the high demand? Regardless, here are many better restaurants in Menaggio worth trying.

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.
