Had amazing ravioli, full of flavour and a good size portion, my partner had gnocchi which was also really tasty. We then had pizza which was excellent. Staff were really friendly and the house wine was amazing! Expect it to have a good view in the day, but it was dark!!

Our AirBnB host recommended this place, and told us that whenever he has friends or family visiting from out of town and wants to impress them, this is where he takes them. It seemed fairly empty when we arrived but filled in as the night went on. He recommended specific dishes for us to try, and I'm glad he did.... More

After seeing the reviews we thought we had to try this restaurant. We are so glad we did. Very quaint restaurant setting. We had made reservations. ( which you should do anywhere in Menaggio. ) The restaurant was full. We ordered the ravioli stuffed with scallops and shrimp, Lake como whitefish and pork marsala - everything was terrific. Good portions... More

Great food, great service, a good selection of wines....special dishes from the area of norther Lake Como are a must, Shatt and Pizzoccheri are great comfort foods that make you just feel good! And if you feel like playing bocci after dinner its a fun option! Maybe a group of friends would enjoy this option!!

Discovered by chance in a walk around the village from our hotel. Food cost half the price of our hotel, service friendly and excellent and meal superb. Went back three times. Wine top notch, could eat inside and outside. The only disadvantage, like most things in Menaggio, it shuts at 10pm

Amazing trattoria. As a french group of friends we were looking for good typical italian food and this is exacly what we found. The antipasti were very good and so were the pastas. Also we ate the best semifreddos of our italian journey. Definitly coming back
