This place is out of control - the ownver has absolutely lost it. The food is avarage to poor - buthe prices are premium - the serving takes hours - the waiters steal the salt and pepper from your table - there is a 2 Eur seating - but no bread. The waiters run around like headless chickens, with no... More

We only went here because the other place we were recommended too was closed. I knew as soon as we sat down we should have walked.. Staff that ignore you is the first warning bell.. When they do approach you they are cold.. Food very average, the salad was overpriced, it was certainly not fresh.. No atmosphere to be had... More

Good food for fair price. It was very busy, but we got our meals within 20 minutes. Portions little bit small, but food was tasty. Although extremely busy, staff managed to be friendly.

This place was pretty full when we arrived at 730 pm which is quiet early . By the time we left people were lining up . We thought it relatively cheap and cheery . They were very busy with only 3 waiters for all those people but service was pretty good . I can't say they were very friendly though... More

With both outside and inside seating, this restaurant had an amazing marinara sauce and fresh, thin pizza! Of the 4 restaurants we ate at in Menaggio, this was our favorite. It is also right near a playground so my kids could play while we sipped on wine. Wish it had a lake view but its charming, back-alley location is just... More

indeed, they have no respect what so ever for their clients/ for tourists, yes boycot, this place. It's your worst place to go! We've never been treated more unfriendly as in this Trattoria. It was so bad, that we've decided never to go back to Menaggio!!!! So don't go to Mennagio inlow season, but go to Bellagio in all season.... More

On 6/25/2013 we were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary with my daughter & family including 2 grandchildren, ages 17 and 15. We took the ferry from Varenna to Menaggio. At 5:00pm we went to " La Trattoria" for dinner. There was only one other customer, a table of 3 people. We ordered. Meals were pretty slow in arriving our table.... More

Busy little place off the beaten track. Service wasn't great but that was because it was busy and they very short on staff.the hard working waitress made us feel welcome and when our meal came it was good.
