Simplicity at its best

This is definitely the place to eat: intimate and welcoming. The Italian cuisine and good choice of wines are highly recommended to all. We had the pleasure of sampling this unique restaurant and would defiantly return.

We went at lunch time so it was a bit quiet. My wife and I both ordered the Linguine with lobster and it was delicious. After our order was taken, the waiter showed us the live lobster they would be cooking. This coupled with home made pasta made it an excellent meal. Would definitely go there again.

Pasta/ seafood dishes very good. Meat dishes don't seem to be the area's specialty, here or elsewhere. Good selection of local (Lombardy) wines, which are excellent.

Very romantic outdoor tables on an alleyway above the lake. Friendly service. Ordered pasta with lobster and selection of lake fish. Brought us bibs and cracking knives but when dish arrived lobster meat completely shredded and mixed into pasta with not a word of explanation. Lake fish very delicious. Did not go back.

This was one of our best meals. My son and I split the pasta with fried white fish. My daughter had lobster for the first time. Everyone loved their dish. The service was attentive. We ate outside and enjoyed lovely Varenna. It could not have been a nicer evening.

The food is special. Very good portions and fantastic taste. Also the service was excellent. I recommend the mixed meat skewer and the mixed lake fish spaghetti.

A nice place without any view with very poor touristic food.... It could take so little to serve local food..... while they exhibit in sophisticated badly executed pseudo-Italian food !!!!

Recommend booking a reservation as we saw them turning anyone who did not have one away for dinner. Small restaurant, service was decent. Food was brought in a timely manner. We enjoyed the lasagne. Tried a fish appetizer that we did not like as much, but that was more to do with our tastes than the preparation of it. Enjoyable... More
