This was the only gluten free pizza place I could find in Menaggio. It was good. Better than most US gluten free pizza but not as good as other Italy gluten free pizza places. Still worth going especially if your GF!

We eat here at least once a month, and is usually our go to place for mussels, although their pasta with missoltino (a local dried fish) is also really good. I don't understand why this place has so many bad reviews, the owners have always been friendly with us. They don't accept credit cards; but, there are lots of places... More

We sat down in the open seating and waited. No one came up to serve us so after a while we got up to look to see if any other restaurants were open. No where else was open for lunch as it was mid afternoon so we returned and asked for a menu. We were pointed at and yelled at... More

Terrible service. i asked what was the name of the restaurant as there is no sign or name on the menu and the owner (I think he was) said it was rebe. I asked our hotel as it was opposite it, and they told me the correct name (no wonder he hides the true identity). The food was terrible and... More

The best part about this place is the location. The food is marginal at best. However, the folks who operate the restaurant are so exceedingly rude that words cannot describe. I truly regret giving them our money. Also they do not accept credit cards. Instead, go to the pizza place down Via Carlo Camozzi called Bar Al Pamador. Much better... More

Food is mediocre at best - the worst meal we have had in Italy. Service borderline rude and apparently a "no sharing" policy (although it IS a pizza place, we ordered 11 dishes for 11 people). Cash only. Patio near the lake is its best attribute, and definitely a tourist cafe so higher prices with sad food quality. Only good... More

We were struggling to find somewhere to have lunch and this place had tables free so we waited and were shown to a table outside. The staff member put an umbrella up to shade us but the position didn't really help us. We only had 2 settings on the table.... eventually the waitress noticed and moved 2 more settings to... More

Rating a 2 because of the dog and cash only not prominently displayed. We chose this one night of our 5 night stay in Mennaggio, which is not known for really good restaurants. It was more of a default choice than anything else. Teh bruschetta had too much oregano and frankly, I can make better myself. Lasagne Bolognese was good.... More
