This is an excellent family run restaurant serving quality local specialities and pasta. I can personally recommend the grilled lakefish with spinach or patatine fritte & my friends said the pasta was superb. Even in October you have to book!

Signage is lacking, but the food is very good. I returned to find the name of the restaurant. So ask around, it is worth it. Outside dining as well as tables inside. We just "stumbled" into this place and we were glad that we did!

This little restaurant was recommended to us by our lovely Voyages Jules Verne rep. It's just off Piazza Garibaldi & we went on our first night in Menaggio (second week in May). Our meals were so perfect we could hardly believe it. Not luxurious or fancy, but the food was sublime. I ordered my favourite - veal - & was... More

We stayed in Menaggio for four nights and tried this on our last night (on Monday). We wish we would have eaten here sooner. It was our favorite meal here. We enjoyed the pasta dishes, vegetables and creme brulee for dessert. The prices were reasonable and the staff very friendly. We enjoyed sitting outside without reservations, at 8:30 PM, after...

Try their pizzoccheri - filling pasta dish with potatoes, little cabbage, and cheese with sage and ask for garlic if you like it. The children and I love it - their... More

The pasta here was so, so good. We greatly enjoyed our meal there. I found the pasta d'Arrabbiato immensely, and my wife greatly enjoyed their lasagne. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
