The food here was ok, it wasn't great but it wasn't bad. We ordered a carafe of white wine with our dinner and it was warm, literally. We queried this and was told that's how it's served...a wine cooler was then provided but a bit late to chill the wine in time.

We discovered this place after seeing a queue forming before the doors were opened. Meal was very well prepared and went down well. Good sized portions and reasonably well priced. Staff were also attentive and extremely friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

I went to this restaurant twice while in Menaggio and had very friendly and outgoing service both times. I also ordered the same pasta dish (12€) both times, as it was delicious. They have reasonably priced wines and espresso, and many tables outside. I would definitely recommend as a place for good pasta (or more, as they had many delicious lunch and second courses on the menu) and great service, right off of the main square. They also accept cards with no issues.

On a recent stay in Menaggio, I ate dinner here twice, and enjoyed it both times. The food was very tasty, and the portions are quite large. The pricing was very reasonable by American standards. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and service was timely. The wine selection was not large, but very reasonably priced (We chose a local white wine, Lugana, which we all very much enjoyed). I had the Gnocchi one evening, and a pasta dish another evening, and both were delicious. The restaurant offers outdoor dining, which can be pleasant, but as it's in a courtyard, the air circulation is limited, which can be a disadvantage on a warm evening. All in all, however, I highly recommend a visit to the Osteria if you're in Menaggion.

Great service, good food. Really value for money. Our suckling pig and osso bucco were excellent but such generous portions that one to share would suffice. Extra bonus: The red wine came from slightly cooled, not the ambient 30 C
