Great value for money pizza lunch. We sat on the patio, plastic chairs but ok, staff pleasant. Kids had pizzas between them, they happily brought extra plates. Was great value for money - basic pizzas started at 5 euro! Much cheaper than main streets. Quality good too. Can't comment on other food, but we enjoyed a quick lunch there :-)

This was recommended by Tripadvisor and the Holiday Rep, and we were not disappointed. A very comprehensive menu, with good selection of dishes all freshly cooked, table for the night, and the attitude of the staff was excellent. We used this restaurant twice, if we had been there longer than a week we would have gone back. Well worth a... More

This is a nice friendly restaurant tucked down one of the side streets in the tourist area. Food came very quickly and was of a high standard

Hidden in the back streets of Menaggio this really is a lovely spot to have pizza. Always busy with both locals and tourists. On a hot night better to be outside but not always an option. Pizza thin and crispy and arrive quickly. Remember if you order other food it may not always arrive together which seems to be the... More

The restaurant was well visited when we stopped for lunch. I ordered a Pizza which was served after no more than 5 minutes... before the salad and long before my husband got his main dish. The pizza was cheap (5 EUR), the pizzoccheri of my husband (not a large portion) rather expensive (12.50 EUR). The tomato salad was one sliced... More

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
