This restaurant was part of the hotel we stayed in, so we ate here a couple of nights when we couldn't be bothered going out. Thank goodness we did, otherwise I would never have discovered my favourite meal in all of Italy! Pumpkin gnocchi with butter and sage sauce - OMG - I am salivating right now just thinking of...

The food was very fresh and delicious. The wine was great and the roasted potatoes are the best A great way to spend our last dinner in Varenna

Laura and her staff are top notch. Laura is fluent in five languages which means so much in ordering a meal that you may wish to know more about. The menu is selective but each was a gastric Italian delight. The ambiance of the inside dining room harkens back to an Italian dining period long past and the outside area... More

The food is homemade and very tasty. Fresh pasta, fish, etc. You can sit outside and watch the people or just gaze at Lake Como!

We stayed at Villa Torretta which is owned and run by these same wonderfully warm people. The restaurant is as close to the water of Lake Como lapping at your feet as you can get and it is delicious authentic Italian fare.

We had very poor food , mixture of service from the daughter of the owner and an English lady which was fine , the latter certainly easier to talk too. The lamb chops were actually mutton , good for leathering ones shoes , the chicken was ok but that was it a leg on a plate with a sprinkling of... More

Not a location to chose for as intimate meal as it located just a few metres from the busy ferry terminal which provides entertainment of a sort. The restaurant is open for breakfast only to hotel residents which results in a daily battle for the staff trying to stop ferry customers from sitting down. The food is good and served... More

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.
