I had an excellent dining experience at Hotel Olivedo I was there in May, 2014. Everything was delicious. We had very small asparagus that was very good. The meat was excellent. We were staying at the hotel and thought we'd have our last dinner there. It was well worth it.

We were staying at the hotel and had dinner here on our first and last night of our visit to Varenna. The food is excellent and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. We started with fresh home made salami and butter, then had an excellent tortiloni, while my man had fresh lake fish with yummy roast potatoes. We shared the... More

My wife and I were looking for a great traditional meal for our last night in Varenna. We stopped at several places along the Lakeside walk to check menus. We were intrigued by the Pumpkin Gnocchi and Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli on the menu at the Olivedo. Walking into the dining room was like stepping back in time. It was... More

Average place to stop for a drink or something easy to eat. The staff is friendly and service is good. Interior is quite outdated and its clearly this is an old place, but its not a big deal. Prices are a bit expensive for what you get. Could use some changes to compete with other reataurants in Varenna, but an... More

I am an Australian who travles to Tirano in the Valtellina by train from Varenna on Lake Como regularly. Opposite the Varenna Ferry Terminal is the Olivedo, a convenmient place to stop for a coffee or snack. What they produce is OK, but they don't like people. The proprietor, a lady in her sixties, and the young man who waits... More

We were guests at the hotel and found the food (dinner) to be nice, but expensive. No style to the presentation, but it was tasty

We arrived by boat from Menaggio at 8.05 pm with the boat to Bellagio leaving at 9 so we didn't want to stray far from the pier. We both had a desire for roast chicken and that was on the menu ( with sage ). We also ordered roast potatoes and a mixed salad. The two ladies who served us... More

We were very tired from the prior 48 hours of jetting for San Francisco to Milan via Newark and then one night in Milan so we did not feel like going out for a fancy meal. The hotel's dinner was just fine. They served asparagus that was the thinnest I have ever seen, barely the diameter of a #2 pencil... More
