Great pizza, not much atmosphere, felt like you were off the tourist trail - not much english spoken - sat inside - a traditional family cafe/pizza .

We ate here in June and really enjoyed our pizzas. We had a variety of pizzas and all were excellent - and a great value. Servers were super nice and knew enough english to help us with our bad italian attempts. Would definitely recommend.

We had a great meal here on a Sunday evening. It's a refreshingly strait forward local Pizzeria reassuringly popular amongst locals but just a stone's throw from the busier lakefront area of Menaggio. The pizzas are cooked in a proper wood fired traditional oven and...More

Just arrived to Menaggio, no reservation. Forget about the numerous cafés on the piazza. We end up at this place and it was wonderful. Mind it is a pizzeria, so order a pizza. The pizza della casa is excellent. The cold cut plate was an...More

This restaurant is up a side street not far from the centre (there is a sign on the main road pointing the way to it). We went there one evening, in a week of dining out in Menaggio (see my other reports). The pizzas are...More

We arrived late into Menaggio and really didn't fancy going to far to have a meal. We found the Lugano Pizzeria, up a flight of stairs and is clearly popular with locals. The hospitality was lovely and we were made very welcome. Don't go late...More

There wasn't anything special about the food although it wasn't bad at all. I rated them with only one star due to the behaviour of the owner: the bill was €22 and we left €25. Leaving the restaurant we said 'buona notte' and when we...More

A good local place where you can enjoy a pizza or a simple dish. If you're lucky, you can grab a table with a view of the lake.

I think you can try.. when we were there, the local kids football team were sitting around a long table that has been pre-prepared. Their families were sitting around tables in other places. Note the restaurant has two... More

We've booked tables there many times. Not for 16, but I'm sure they'll do it. Check the weather forecast before you call and book, it can still be very hot at 7 pm - in which case you might want to ask if you can sit outside... More

The place is off the water but really where the locals go for a great pizza and a bottle of wine. The place will win no awards for the decoration, but it will for the local charm and the food. A couple of two can obtain an appetizer, wine, and pizza all for $25. Really great for the people who want to get away from the tourist expensive places everywhere on Como Lake.
