On recommendation of a friend, our family had a lovely dinner at Paolo's. We stopped by around 6pm on Saturday evening and made reservations for 7 -- and were very glad we did, because by then it was impossible to get a table outside (although they were still seating inside). Great location, excellent food, excellent service. Strongly recommend.

We were eating a little later (around 9pm) the night we ate here. We were quickly given a table and the service was prompt throughout the meal. It's just that the staff were a bit 'off', not particularly friendly. However, the food and wine was excellent. We tried to eat here again, but on a Saturday night without a reservation we were not able to (despite several tables empty at gone 9pm). Again, not particularly pleasantly dealt with by the staff, but that aside, would eat there again for the food.

Expensive dinner, they were quite busy and service was slow. The food was good. There was a mix of local people and tourist. The wine selection could use some improvement but the food was nice.

We ate at di Paolo on our last night in Menaggio. It was by far, our best meal in Menaggio, and a fitting way to say goodbye to such a wonderful town. Located in town square, it is easy to get to. Choices are good, although a little pricey, but service was great. We had everything from pasta, to fish, to pizza and there are some twists on the traditional ligurian fare. Seating on the square with a view of the mountains and the Lake is lovely. Give it a shot, you won't be sorry.
