This relatively small restaurant is centrally located in Mennagio, right by the waterfront. The staff are friendly and speak fluent English. The prices are somewhat above average but the quality exceeded expectations. The servings are smaller than at other locales, but are satisfying nevertheless. The food was excellent and the selection of wine extensive. The only issue we encountered was... More

We stayed for a week in Menaggio and ate here two or three times Lunch and Dinner. It was way and above the best in town. Service was always friendly, efficient and helpful. Food was always first class, well prepared and delicious. Location on main square is great and we ate both inside and outside. We did book in passing... More

Waited for a table of this much touted restaurant. Views are great but service is a bit stiff. Had carrot soup and salad. Food was not gastronomic but nothing to complain about. Can visit for the ambiance, location and views.

The food here was absolutely stunning - there were 4 of us and we all chose different things and everybody loved what they had. I recommend the scallops - some of the best I've ever had. The chocolate fondant dessert was also simply delicious. The wine was perfect too.

The food was out of this world. I had the lamb which was delicious. If we visit again I will definitely eat here again.

We didn't get too much food for the price we paid, particularly poor on vegetables. Lake fish (supposedly a speciality) was underwhelming.

This restaurant is on the main town square facing the lake. Reservation is a must or you might have to wait long. I was here because someone recommended this place for fine dining. I was disappointed though. The rabbit was a little bitter for my taste but the sauteed prawns were good. The service lacked warmth and was mechanical. Over... More

We tried a few different restaurants and this was by far the best. The Sea Bass and Steaks were really nice not to mention the house wine in litre jugs! Need to book. For a warm up try the bar next door.

We had a simply delicious lunch here recently. The meal is the best we have had in the region, it was fresh and full of flavour. I thoroughly recommend it.

We had a really nice dinner in this restaurant. Staff was nice and recommended very good wine for us. We were there early so the courses came in fast. Food was well done and very tasty! Décor of the property is nice but the chairs and tables have seen a lot of life and could do a good clean.
