Family-owned restaurant

Good restaurant, pizza 'Sole' was nice, spaghetti also. Very friendly English-speaking staff, surely all part of the same family.

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

This place is great for people watching if you can sit outside on the square, people wander past walking their dogs in the evening and it feels like the centre of the community. We had the pizza and it was really nice. The pasta looked good too.

I walked to this restaurant excited for the gnocchi in the pouring rain. I excitedly opened the door and asked if I could eat. "Only one?" Was the answer I got. I've gotten this many times, but her eyebrow raised set me on edge. She then pointed to the farthest back corner of the restaurant and told me to sit... More

Had dinner on our first night in Varenna...good food, except for the Pesce- too many scales and bony. The pesto pasta was great! Service good. Check it out!

Very good pizza. Cappuccino was bad. Go across the street for better coffee. It does have nice view of the town square. Nice service.

My companion had a pizza that they said was very good but had a fillet that was a bit fatty and grisly - had me doubting whether it was correctly listed - not cheap but overall just three stars

My Fiance & I decided to eat here on our last night in Varenna, after a 2 week road trip across Italy. It seemed the perfect setting for our last night. The restaurant was busy, which is usually a good sign & it was lovely to sit outside & watch the world go by. The staff were friendly & we... More
