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

We started walking from our promenade hotel in Menaggio up to the restaurant, and quickly realized that we should’ve driven!! It’s quite a hike for any travelers who are dealing with hunger pangs and are looking for a quick stop. First off, I cannot say enough about the staff. They were clearly surprised by my attire on our first trip... More

It's was close by where we stay, we had four or five meals over there. It's very good, reasonable price, and the service is 5 star. It's a bit far out of the city center but if you are in the neighbourhood, you have to try them. Highly recommended!

The food was great, we had the siriloin which tasted wonderful. Even though we returned the first bottle of wine they were still helpful and serviceminded. The pizzas looked - and smelled - great. Friendly staff,

The cakes for breakfast are very tasty! The stuff is friendly and there is a place for playing Bocce (national italien game with balls like Petanque in France)

We hoped to eat here last night but it was full, so got our hotel to book a table as we really thought the menu looked interesting and wanted to sit outside and enjoy the garden. The menu did not disappoint with excellent veal in tuna sauce and delicious lamb chops and grilled veg. But what was a really amazing... More
