We went to Quatro Pass on recommendation from family friends and we were NOT disappointed. Excellent food, service and great setting. It was so good, we made a reservation for an additional night. The second night was just as good. Osso Bucco and pumpkin gnocchi were fantastic.

Of all the places we visited during 2 weeks all over Italy, dining here was in our Top 3 best dinners. Great food made with quality and care. The wine list was impressive and reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

The service was friendly and very helpful. The ravioli was rather dry with very little sauce to provide flavor to the pasta and meat filling. The pumpkin gnocchi was good but not outstanding. The lake fish had a rather strong fishy taste. The salad and vegetables were à la carte. The restaurant is small and those without reservations were turned... More

We came here on a recommendation from our hotel. It was our last night in Italy, and we were looking for something memorable. We were not disappointed. The wait staff were very friendly and did very well to answer our questions about the menu and the wine. As we ordered dessert, my friend asked about the sauce on my entree,... More

This seemed an especially good place to sample local fish recipes. The salted lake herring with grilled polenta was wonderful. The meat was good as well. I had memorable stinko di mailino.

We stayed in Menaggio and took a trip across the lake to specifically eat at this restaurant. I had read about the restaurant in a travel book and the reviews were great. We were a bit late to arrive for lunch but the owner was gracious enough to allow us to dine after her staff asked if okay. The lunch... More

Average food with tourist prices . Good service and accommodated our large party. Menu was limited and did not have a lot of non- meat options

Outstanding in every way. What a pleasant experience, from the food, to the wine, to the staff's friendliness and attentiveness, to the overall joyful ambiance. Our best meal by far in Varenna was enjoyed here. The lobster pasta appetizer was beautiful and delicious and the pumpkin gnocchi was amazing. Both the rabbit roll and pork shank appetizers were quite simply... More
