Quaint with delicious food and great wine list!

We were planning on having dinner in Bellagio, but due to change in plans we decided to go here instead. The restaurant allowed us to bring our own bottle of wine, which was great, as we had picked up a local Pinot Noir. The Gnocchi was good, as the first course, and then we had the mixed fish platter for... More

This is a very charming, quaint restaurant. My husband and I had a wonderful dinner. I would highly recommend the pumpkin gnocchi but everything was very good. One of our best dinners on our trip!

We went here both for lunch and dinner. Both times the food and service were amazing. We tried most of the lake fish dishes and we're very impressed with all of them. The wine list is extensive and we enjoyed a couple of really nice wines. Would highly recommend this place.

Osteria Quatro Pass is an excellent restaurant on a narrow alleyway in Varenna. The interior is charming and the food was excellent. The mixed grill of local fish was outstanding and portions were generous.

Great service. The food is good but not as tasty and creative as La Vista or Cavatappi. We sat outdoor and we got a lot of bug bites. Overall it was a great place to dine.

This restaurant is tucked into an alleyway off the main piazza (as is everything in Varenna). It has a very pleasant old school ambience, a bit formal but not stuffy. We ended up at a table tucked into an open window, with one sitting more or less instead and the other on the alley, which gave us a bit of... More

Besides reading about this place on TA, also recommended by staff at Hotel Du Lac. We went there our first night in Varenna after a reservation was made 2 hours in advance. The woman who appears to be the owner greets you with a big "Buona Sera" and a smile, but understands little english. Fortunately the two waiters speak adequate... More
