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.

Friendly atmosphere and good food, a local trobadour humming with his guitar. We felt well looked after!

We had dinner at this restaurant after the TA recommendations and had a great time. First of all, as mentioned before the service was fantastic and friendly. They brought free appetizers, tastings of sauce we weren't sure about and a small sweet. Food was also great with a fresh salad, risotto and pasta. The penna cota for dessert was home... More

Tonight we went with family and friends to La Vecchia Magnolia. The service was most excellent, friendly, helpful and prompt. The food was excellent value and very tasty. Local dishes were on offer and everyone enjoyed their particular choice.

We ate here tonight after being recommended by our hotel. We were staying in the Loveno area of Menaggio so were half way up the hill already but the walk up certainly works up your appetite! We had the mozzarella and tomato starter and the meat platter and they were both enormous! For mains we had Pork and Mushroom Tagliatelle... More
