Great restaurant in the back streets of Menaggio. Only one we found serving octopus (our favourite). Both meals were good - fish fresh and nicely cooked, steak cooked perfectly. Good house wine but also reasonably priced bottles good value for money. Great meal at reasonable prices.l

Had melanzane parmiggiana, the test of a restaurant. With salad. If they get these basics right you're onto a winner. They got it very right indeed. Very reasonable price, exccellent house wine. Buon appetito!

sat outside , which is pleasant enough . Informed that there were no Pizzas available that evening despite the name on the door ! Waiter not very friendly , there was a sign saying that the license is for sale , so maybe things are not as they should be . Nice Fresh Fish , good chips .

Nasty gravy laden risotto with tasteless fish. When I asked the manager to take it off my bill, he told me that he had served it 5,000 times and I (of course) was the only one to ever complain, so it was not a problem with the food, it was my problem. UGH!

It's worth searching the side streets in tourist areas for where the locals go. This is a family run, friendly pizza bar, it's Italian authentic , food is freshly cooked, exceptional value, wine by the carafe well worth it would recommend to anyone. Fantastic value and superb food

We ate here on our final night in Menaggio, feeling the need for meat (after a week of pasta and pizza). The food was exceptional. Higher quality than most in Menaggio. Family run and eager to please. I highly recommend for a wonderful meal!

We visited this restaurant 4 times during our recent stay to Menaggio. The food is delicious- very simple, excellent flavours , great fresh ingredients. Lots of locals eat here and so a great atmosphere from all the big family groups. Great value for money. The antipasti sharing dish is fab, really filling and the steak with fried potato slices is...

No frills, but very friendly staff and good food for the price. The Pizza's are excellent with plenty of choice, the pasta is tasty and sufficient. We like Vecchia Menaggio and visited several times during our stay locally. Good no nonsense tasty food which saves cooking in the apartment & no washing up - easy on the pocket - perfect!!

Food arrived over a 15 minute period, so by the time the last person was served, the first had finished. Ok, we didn't have the Pizza, but the past was bland and uninteresting. Gnocchi was the worst I have ever had and looked (and tasted) more like play-doh
