Delightful restaurant and superb understanding of Gluten Free/ Coeliac

We are in the middle of a holiday in Lake Como, and two from four in the party need gluten free food. Not only is the service, food and ambience utterly perfect, but they also cater with a perfect understanding of the needs of Coeliacs. As a family who love trying different places on holiday, we... read more

Our apartment was near La Vecchia Mangolia, so we decided to give it a try. It wasn't a mind blowing experience, but pretty okeish. Service was ok, food was good, but the live music (on Friday evening) wasn't very tempting. The view isn't spectacular either. But all in all decent experience.

During our short stay in Menaggio we've followed the advice of Tripadvisor and ended up in a small village lost in the hills in this restaurant and we didn't regret ! The dinner was super tasty and not expensive at all, the service was warm and welcoming. We didn't book but still got the nice table with a view. Totally... More

Fabulous yet again, thoroughly enjoyed revisiting this trattoria The welcome glass of prosecco was lovely. Tried many dishes during our 2 week break, would recommend the pizzas, pasta dishes as well as the Delightful desserts. One of the highlights this year was the outdoor entertainment, singers, local bowling competition & the whole ambience of the place. Well worth a visit,... More

Lovely place up in the mountains! Would recommend getting a cab if you're staying by Lake Como. It takes a good ten minutes by cab and its uphill. The menu includes antipasti, primi, secondi piatti and pizza, which is not your usual menu in menaggio. Tasty, good food. Welcoming staff! A truly enjoyable summer evening in lake como!

Really great place. I really liked how well they treated us. The staff made us feel at home. We had lunch and dinner here. The food was outstanding and so was the service each time. And by the way, "great Wi-Fi."

Having walked passed the restaurant on a number of occasions on regular jaunts into Menggio town we decided to stop for a beer and subsequently revisit for an evening meal at the restaurant. Whether dropping in for a beer or our meal the staff were always welcoming friendly and very helpful. Very attentive without ever making you feel pestered. As... More

After underestimating the 30 minute uphill trek from Mennagio town, we were treated to the very best of traditional Italian food at a great price. The real treat however was the elegant and relentlessly gentile service received there. Our colourful waiter left us totally charmed and amused for days.

The restaurant was a bit hard for us to find, GPS didn't have the street, but it was great once we arrived! The buffalo caprese salad was the best I have had since arriving in Italy 4 days ago. The meat platter was good enough to try again. Two people in our party had the chicken which was really tasty,... More

Excellent lunchtime meal, service attentive without being intrusive food superb; real taste of Italy and advice on local dishes. Not easy to find from Menaggio but well worth the effort. Village charming and by chance attended an evening concert in the Villa Vigoni by the Quintetto Papageno -magical.
