Enjoyable lunch.

Pretty enjoyable experience, patio over looking the square, good food and gracious hosts. The food was good, curious that so many places list 'Frozen' on the menu for the seafood.

Centrally located in the heart of Varenna, this restaurant had the freshest, homemade pizza. If you are craving pizza during your trip, this is definitely the place to get it.

We visited this restaurant for lunch during our day in Varenna. We had read a review and it had been highly recommended. It definitely lived up to it's reviews. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We went with my nine month old baby daughter and they were quick to supply a high chair for her. My daughter was... More

Having seen this restaurant on our first evening at Varenna, we decided to give it a go on our last night here. We are pleased we did. The food was good and reasonably priced and despite the grilled vegetables we ordered not turning up , it was worth the trip. The complimentary Limincellos finished off a wonderful evening.

Exhausted after traveling for 30 hours from the U.S. West Coast, we chose this restaurant (hotel is above the restaurant) as it was right on the piazza. We sat outside and were immediately greeted and served with a glass of prosecco. I ordered the spaghetti with missoltino (small lake fish). Tasty. We were then served our first glass of limoncello,... More

We have eaten dinner here twice during our current stay in Varenna and have been mostly pleased with food quality, ambiance and service. The night we arrived, after 30 hours of travel from the U.S., we stumbled in simply to get something to eat with no expectations. The menu offered a surprising number of dishes, from pasta to fresh fish... More

It is in a quiet location in the main square, has a very good menu and wines at reasonable prices.. Most of the cafes on the lake front have rather limited menus and expensive drinks.

Ate here twice during our stay in Varenna. The place has seating outside where you can watch people walk thru the piazza during the cool evenings or you can sit inside. They quickly bring you drinks and bread. We had very flavorful pasta dishes such as Tagliatelle with Mushrooms, Tortellini with prosciutto, and our youngest enjoyed their pizzas. We capped... More

This restaurant is tucked up on the hill with a patio facing a piazza. We are in a covered patio out back under a light sprinkle. Great waiter who spoke much better English than I speak Italian. We had coffee, wine and lunch. My wife had lasagna and I had the recommended risotto valtellina. Both were very good, nice quite... More
