Beautiful But Quiet
Menaggio and its environs are more of a wealthy older persons destination. For the young or young at heart it is a little sedate. This is not a moan but its the first time that I have gone to bed before 10pm in many years.
For many the highlight of the day appeared to be an ice cream! A more beautiful place to eat an ice cream would be hard to find though.

no food after 9 pm
In Menaggio we tried to find a restaurant Which would still serve food after 9 pm. It prooved out to be really hard! It was raining big time, so we didn´t fancy running around the streets for ages, so finally we just settled for a pub/restaurant which served cold snacks. Service was terrible, first we were told they didn´t do takeaways (we never asked for one) and then we were took to a table which was already occupied by a couple having a romantic evening, even though there were other tables free too! We had to wait ages for the waitress to take our orders, and finally when we did them the waitress didn´t seem to approve our choises... we both had paninis. There was nothing in between them except for few slices of cheese for my boyfriend and some ham for me. They were dry and quite horrible.
we paid 3.50 for each, plus something for the service(!!). Really not worth it at all! we felt cheated and still hungry.. luckily there was a beautiful storm later, so we forgat the bad "dinner", listening to the thunder and watching the lightning.
After getting a mail from italian Marco, I must to add, that besides this place restaurants and food in Italy in general are very good. e just had a bad luck with this one, happens to every one... :)
