My wife and I had dinner here on several occasions these past two weeks and we were satisfied with the food and service. However one evening we stopped there just for a gelato and we were treated very rudely by owners. We know when we're not welcome so we will be sure to never come back.

Small cozy trattoria that serves pasta, pizza, meat, fish, salads on one side of the restaurant n the other side was a cafe. We had the margarita pizza which was very good thin crust n spaghetti with clams. Both dishes were very good.

We were recommended this restaurant on our late afternoon arrival at our holiday rental in Mennagio. Ate there on our first night. The pizza was average. We were pestered by flies and noted that there did not seem to be an insect zapper around the eating area. We had to remind the waitress that we had not received our change... More

We ate here several times. It is down a alley leading away from the main town square and was always busy with locals as well as tourists. Good food at a reasonable price. Best of all were the great Gluten free options in the menu book, including sea food pasta and home made GF Pizza.

Between the four of us we has 2 different pizzas, grilled swordfish and pasta. Food was excellent, one of the best pizzas I ever had. Crust was perfect, nice spicy kick to the pizza. Would highly recommend.

Good to very good Italian fare. We ate here every other day - either lunch or dinner - and were never disappointed. We had pizza, lake fish, carbonara and some truly excellent fillet steak. Don't be in a hurry - they have a lot of covers, but the staff are friendly and work like the clappers!

We had three pizzas. They were average. The taste was good but the pizza center was soggy. Service was good. We had to wait for a short while but they were pretty quick to get us a table.

We had the bressaola and the caprese salad. As secondi the fried fishes and the swordfish. The food was good but the service was not. They could not handle the crowd. Everything went slow. There is only one toilet for the restaurant. The second toilet has no lock so no one uses it. Not a very expensive thing to repair... More
