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

I was there with my husband and his parents and had three meals there in the space of a week. The food was fresh and good quality, we even took some of our italian friends there and they were very happy with their dishes. We had spaghetti with missoltini, which are some small fish from the lake: good portions and... More

This restaurant is in the town piazza near the church. Great atmosphere sitting outside in the evening. Food very good and staff attentive. Definitely a good choice for cuisine and atmosphere. House wine very good in a carafe and was reasonably priced. Locals walking in the square with their dogs. Perfect evening.

We love Varenna, the feel of the place, and the views. We picked this eatery with a few friends close to our hotel after a busy day of walking. It was not a good choice. It is in the small town square across from the cathedral. We went there wanting "lake fish" which is a big local dish. In the... More

We dined here twice during a 5 day stay in Varenna and were pleased with both meals. Their lasagne is loaded with meat, their calamari is fresh and tasty and their pizzas are thin crusted and topped with the freshest ingredients. Wine is very affordable, they offer limoncello on the house after a meal and on our last night dining... More

The pizza was good but not amazing ... I was dying for a great salad and the side salad was not. The greens were not all that fresh looking and although the bowl was large we did not finish it. Salad was $5 @and cheese pizza was $6, plus the $2 up charge per person. Located on the main square... More

Dined here twice during a recent five-day visit to Varenna. With a restaurant on nearly every doorstep in town, my friend and I really liked the location, atmosphere, food, and value for money at Albergo del Sole.
