Found this little gem of a place during our holiday. Over 2 weeks we went 4 times!! Excellent pizza, great choice of toppings, wife loved aubergine starter and good pasta too. Prices are great value, it's not flash just good honest food and family who own and run the place are very friendly and welcoming. Definitely go back next year!

We arrived in Menaggio late and stumbled upon Vecchia. It was very busy with only a few tables available outside which is where we prefer to sit. We were seated promptly and ordered a liter of the house white wine for only 6.5. It was decent and reasonable. We ordered spaghetti carbonara and spaghetti with oil and pepper to start. Both were well prepared and tasty. We then ordered fish for our mains. I had the local perch with risotto and my spouse had the local whitefish with butter and sage. Both dishes were excellent. The whitefish was served whole and required some work with deboning (to be expected). It was cooked perfectly with the skin crisped and delectable. My perched consisted of about a dozen small fillets lightly breaded and fried on a bed of risotto. The perch tasted very good and the risotto was delicious. My only regret is that I could not finish it all. We ended our meal with a creme caramel for dessert and a cappuccino and a cafe latte. In all it was delicious and the total bill was about 65.00 which we felt was reasonable for the quantity and quality. Recommended.

This restaurant (and small hotel) is located down a pedestrian side street away from the main part of Menaggio and away from the restaurants most visited by tourists. Not the most picturesque part of Menaggio but well worth a visit for good food at reasonable prices. We have visted this restaurant on many occasions (for lunch) over the past 15 years or so and have always enjoyed enjoyed good food and good service at a very reasonable price. Pizza and Pasta dishes are excellent. They have a nice outside (covered) terrace with a few additional tables on the street itself, plus a larger indoor seating area. The restaurant also seems to be very popular with locals and is usually quite busy at lunchtime . Don't be put off by the location - this is a very good, down to earth, local Italian restaurant with good food at good prices!!

Food very good but location not the best - hidden away up a narrow alley but worth seeking out - tables can be a little close together if you are dining as a couple but food good and prices reasonable for the area
