We had 6 courses with tasty seafoods and shell fish and great accompanying wines. Waiters in high spirits making us feel at home. Definitely a restaurant to visit even in wintertime indoors.

In di Paolo dishes are refined. The service is excellent and the choices of wine per glass is from a higher level.

Wonderful location in central square of Menaggio,with lovely lake views and nearby small fountain. A little pricier than other local restaurants- but the cooking is a notch better. The risotto was creamy and very good. The roast fillet of fish with peppers on a bed...More
