Service was excellent and atmosphere pleasant. Food and drinks were local and we teased good quality behind them.

We consider this restaurant to be fair both considering the food and the price that necessarily was charged.

Our rental in Plesio, according to local maps, wasn't far from the trattoria, but it took us 15 minutes to locate the big old Magnolia, its namesake. The plus was we spoke to many locals along the winding steep road to inquire and we did make it! This is actually a bar for locals that looked spartan but good, our... More

The pasta dishes are quite good, like the garganelli pasta with gorgonzola and the ravioli filled with scallops.Secondi of lake fish over risotto and perch with butter and sage were okay: the latter could use more flavor. Maybe perch isn't our thing. We came back for a pizza the next day and were angered by the inaccurately presented hours that... More

We saw a sign to this restaurant and decided to take a look. The menu looked inviting and we were warmly greeted and shown to a table with a good view across the lake. We decided to share a Four Seasons Pizza and a Mixed Salad and that was more than enough for us, washed down with sparkling local spa... More

We drove up into the hills in Menaggio to find the restaurant and it was well worth the drive. Very friendly and informative service in Italian and English. We had Risotto with cheese and rosemary and pizzoccheri, both full of flavor. Main courses, lake fish and pork fillets with a mustard/cream sauce. Both very good. Dessert was semifredo with amaretti,... More

We visited on recommendation of the property manager who we were renting our appartment with. We were very happy with our meal. I had been unwell so just had the minestrone soup which was delicious and just what I needed . My husband had scallop ravioli and lasagne. The staff were very friendly and I would recommend.
