Good for lunch

Stopped here for lunch on a long drive. Menu is very limited for vegetarians - I had the Tagliatelle Funghi which was not great but edible. Friends had pizza and a seafood risotto which went down very well. Nice for a quick lunch, not sure I'd rush back.

Located in the town center, serving delicious food and lovely ambiance. We dined outside for lunch on a sunny March afternoon. The service was great and the food even better. Their bruschetta is hands down the best I've ever had! The pizza was good and their spaghetti (with onions and bacon) was so flavorful. Loved it here, I will definitely... More

We arrived in Varenna after flying in from NYC. Our first dinner was here. TipAdvisor highly recommended Albergo del Sole. We began our meal outside. It rain forced us to move inside. The hospitality was outstanding. Our family of six enjoyed a wonderful meal- pizza, entrees, wine, desert. Oh my! We had a downpour happening outside for awhile so we... More

I had the risotto with salted beef in red wine sauce.... and it came in a parmigian crusted that was delicious! And a large portion to boot! My mom ordered the lasagna which... More

I know pizza is a southern-Italian dish, but we weren't hungry for more. It was just ordinary, and the house wine was indifferent. The service was quite good.

Decided to visit this restaurant after reading an articles from a certain website. My friends tried a local pasta topped with lake water fish. However it was too salty for our liking. The air dried meat pizza and fried tiny lake fish bought by me and my friend is however very popular among the group.

We ate here initially because we were guests in their B&B and wanted a late lunch after checking in. We sat in their front outdoor patio and enjoyed wonderful, large salads and a half-liter of the house white. That was the first of three meals we had here, including another lunch (same salads...they were that good) and a dinner (delicious... More
