Pretty location on the main square. It was raining so we were placed in back covered terrace, but when the weather is nice there are tables out front on the square. Food is good to very good with nice flavor. We had the veal milanese and the was nicely presented and tasty. The risotto was also very good. The owner... More

Lively place in the square. We went after dinner for dessert, and the tiramisu was phenomenal. I cannot say enough about it! Great place to sit outside and people-watch while enjoying a glass of wine or beer.

We had a dinner there when staying in Varenna. The choice was impulsive and we regretted about it lately. The food is overpriced, and the quality is below the threshold. Pasta carbonara, ordered by my spouse was worse than you'll have in average Italian restaurant in Moscow, my "frutti del mare" pizza doesn't impress and had rotten and smelling king... More

Chanced upon the back door of the restaurant and went in for dinner. The food was absolutely superb and the waiter exceptionally friendly. Recommended

I spent three nights in Varenna staying at the Albergo Del Sole. A warm greeting by Francesco upon arrival. Quick check in. Fabulous food at the restaurant downstairs incl a great breakfast! There were many restaurants around the Piazza San Pietro but it seemed that everyone wanted to eat at the Del Sole. VERY friendly and accommodating staff at the... More

after reading the reviews on Trip advisor we decdied to try this restaurant for lunch, we were extremely disappointed. The service was fine, but the pizza was only "OK", the prices were too high for the value we received. My wife ordered a salad and the lettuce was brown around the edges. They took it back and replaced it, but... More

We had just arrived in Varenna and found this wonderful restaurant. I had the fresh white lake fish and it was superb. It is not lakeside but should be consider when deciding on your dining places.

We ate on the patio and shared a pizza, along with a pasta dish. Both were very good. We also enjoyed a salad. The staff was veery nice and the location is in a relaxed setting.

I was so lucky to find this local gem. I read great things about this family run restaurant in my handy Rick Steves travel guide, whom rarely steers me wrong. After a much needed nap, the sounds and smells of delicious meals woke me up, to find my dinner spot was directly under my lovely balcony below. I was greeted... More

We ate here on our visit to varenna. We ordered the lake fish and the seafood pasta. Both were good but not spectacular. The pasta was a little salty and not as good as other versions we have tried. We got prosciutto with melon as an appetizer which was surprisingly a good combination and a good appetizer. The service was... More
