It was fantastic. They had even gone to the trouble of special menus. My brother went back the next day to thank the owner for a fabulous evening. Great food and service was second to none

This is what great food and amazing service looks like. We had read some great reviews in advance and called ahead to make reservation. We made the steep climb from Menaggio to find this hidden gem.

We were welcomed by smiling faces - a warm welcome. Menu was extensive and well translated. Our family opted for a variety of dishes from fish to meat to vegetables. All were most delicious and perfectly prepared. Wine list was also good and the bottle suggested was ideal. Staff were happy and attentive throughout.

However the star was Mr Mario Colombo himself. A really pleasant gentleman who was charming and friendly. Also, he really went the extra mile to see our family home safely.

Not only will I visit here again and recommend, but I will happily stay in Hotel Royal. If only all places were this good. 10/10.

We ate here every night of our holiday, the menu is very varied and always top-class. The courses are just the right size to feel full without feeling bloated. The service is brilliant, very polite with a smile and attention to detail is great.

Chez Mario is an excellent restaurant. There is very friendly staff and excellent food. I had one of the tastiest and freshest meals of my life. Every one in our family had different meals and they were all delicious. Mario is very approachable. He personally greeted us at the door and spoke to us frequently throughout the meal. He gave our boys a complimentary gelato when they had finished their meal. Before we paid our bill he insisted we try his limoncello - it was delicious. When we were ready to go home we asked Mario to call us a taxi. He insisted on driving us back down to Menaggio. A fantastic evening, can highly recommend this restaurant!
