...it will be okay. But hangry means the dozing staff will drive you crazy. Orders then arrived magically (suspiciously) quickly, salad straight from the artic fridge to the table, everything else - except the pizza - arrived literally 2 minutes later. Pizza immense, would have been excellent had it been completely baked. "The Art of Ignoring Customers Who Want To... More

We've visited most restaurants in Luino- our nearest major town near our home- for many years & keep returning to La Vecchia Pesa. Why? The captioned qualities of this downturn diner means you're always assured of high quality & reasonably priced Italian trattoria fare with an extremely wide choice- thanks to an adjacent steakhouse the restaurant also owns- all year...

Friendly staff, good food - the risotto was presented excellently in a edible basket, and the table next to us had ordered a magnificent fish dish with many different types of seafood that looked amazing.

Two visits during the same week means it is a good choice to consider. Pizzas are just more than you will be able to get, just fair quality and prize. Fish are of diverse quality, y choice was just ok, my boss was not satisfied. As it gets full, the put the music louder, which you may find annoying, but... More

Excellent experience. Good food, quick and correct service, great value. Genuine Italian food, fresh and well-cooked. Complete with starter bread and complimentary limoncello while waiting for the check. I heartily recommend this restaurant!
