A Pleasant Surprise!

We took a day trip from Milan to visit Lake Como. I had already preselected 2 restaurants for dinner in Varenna to choose from. When we got there, neither one sparked any interest, so we continued walk around and found Alberto Del Sole. Our dinners was delicious, especially the tagliatelle with... read more

Very warm welcome from the staff, delicious pasta dishes. Despite the language barrier, we had no real issues communicating. The menu is in English, Deutsch and Italian. :)

Why is it you find the best restaurant on the last night! Forget about the others this to us was the most authentic and not touristic . Great food & great service at very good prices. Enough said ...try it and you will see.

We had lunch there and it was so good we had dinner as well. The pizza was excellent, the house wine was very good, the pesto and the lasagna were great, and the desert was good. The service was good and dinner was nice and warm (cold, rainy day) outside under cover with a fire. We all enjoyed it.

Terrible service - was made to wait and literally ignored as I kept on asking for a table. Even when we got the table, they didn't bring out the menu's until we had to actually ask for it at least half an hour later. The food was good.

We spent a week in Varenna, and had dinner here 4 nights, so what does that tell you?. Each meal was delicious, and the service excellent. Enzo was great. Good prices. When we go back we'll be eating there again!

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
