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.

Menaggio is a charming, lakeside town on the edge of Lake Como, with a promenade tastefully lined with trees and flowers. Il Ristorante da Paolo, at the Hotel Garni Corona on the Largo Cavour is well situated to enjoy a wide view of the lake and eating on the piazza. We enjoyed a Galantina di coniglio, stuffed rabbit, and carré... More

We also got the chance to take an evening meal at Da Paolo, located in the Piazza of Menaggio. Another fantastic ristorante in Como. A large menu of fresh Pasta and Fish and lots more. This is well worth a visit, stunning view of Bellagio across the lake topped up an excellent evening

We enjoyed our food so much that we ate here twice. The service is great, the location (on the piazza, overlooking the lake) and the food is absolutely fantastic! We had steak, pasta with seafood, caprese salad. All of this was simply perfect. We would highly recommend this place! Try to reserve in advance and keep in mind that they... More

Great location in a quieter piazza. Great service. They were not open every night and they are busy so you should book

Stumbled upon Ristorante Di Paolo after walking away from a nearby restaurant that had a rubbish menu. Di Paolo's menu was unusual and interesting and tasted amazing! We plumped for the risotto with truffles and penne di paolo which was flavoured with light curried spices and was very fresh. The risotto stole the show with shavings of truffle, delicate pecorino...

During a week's holiday in Menaggio, we had our best meal at this restaurant. You have to book to guarantee a table and we saw many people being turned away. The food came quickly and the waiters were very courteous. I had a lovely dish of red mullet and my husband eat Ravioli. We wanted to return the next night... More
