We stayed in the hills above Mennagio and decided to walk to La Baita, we didn't get far. We soon realised that it was a little further than suggested on the map, another factor was that the road leading to the restaurant is surrounded by woods and poorly or not lit at all, it was also Halloween, so we wimped...

Best pork ribs ever. Delicious. Great home cooking, great views, great value. Amazing lake views. There are lots of restaurants on the lake but this is one of my favourites. Well worth a visit

I'm grateful to Tripadvisor reviewers for putting us on to this place. Traditional food of the highest quality, and quite different to the fare in the other rated restaurants in the area. Don't think about walking or driving. The road could be dangerous for the uninitiated, especially in the evening. Take a taxi. If there is a place to review... More

In the middle of nowhere...if you fancy a challenge through single track roads in the dark...the place is superb. Great friendly staff and superb food and drink and not too pricey.

We came across this well hidden Gem after a few days of touristy mennagio. The walk to the restaurant is wonderfully beautiful. It is a fairly steep walk (but relatively short) through a densely wooded area. The restaurant staff are beautifully welcoming. The food is local and DELICIOUS. The view provides a jaw dropping background to a wonderful meal. A... More

Definely need GPS to find this gem, but worth the effort. Service is good and the food is excellent. Seems to have a mix of tourists and locals - always a good sign.

We had a great evening at La Baita and were lucky enough to be able to sit out on the terrace. ( take a jumper as it can get chilly ) O.K. It's a steep and narrow road to get to the restaurant (just up from Menaggio / Croce ) BUT it's different and has a very local feel to... More
