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.

Good food and friendly helpful owner. The menu had English translations but it felt so Italian. I think we were the only tourists there. We actually liked it enough to go back the next night!

We went because of a recommendation in a travel guide. Rather put off by unkempt waiting staff. there was a 20 euro set menu which turned out to be poor value since for my main course, the local fish, I got one tiny tiny fillet. Wine which was part of the offer was very poor. Entire meal served within 35... More

For those lovers of simple authentic wood fired pizza this restaurant is fantastic. We had the diavola and parma prosciutto crudo pizzas with an excellent bottle of barbara wine. We finished with tiramisu and espresso machiattos. It was a great Italian food experience and cost about 40 euros (half of this cost was drinks).

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 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!
