Three visits - all were good experiences.

We very much enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Service was good and price was reasonable. We had such a nice dinner experience that we returned the next day for lunch and that too was a good experience. And we had a second dinner event as well. Nice people, good food, fair price, nice... read more

We ate here everyday of our 3 day stay in Varenna, we also ordered takeaway and took it back to our apartment. Good choice of pizza and pastas, enough variety to satisfy our teenage boys.Highly recommended.

We dined here on two different nights and the food was delicious and the service was fantastic. This restaurant had a lovely family feel and we felt very relaxed with our two young children. They were very friendly to the children and made them feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Disappointed with our first meal in the Lake Como area. The lasagna and Penne Carbonara were average and not worth having again. I prepare both dishes myself and do a better job!

We ended up eating at this cute and cozy little restaurant twice. The pizza and pasta dishes were both good, and the service was very attentive.

We ordered two pizzas, a 1/2 L of house wine, and water for lunch. Extremely reasonably priced (it was under 30 €) and the pizza was thin, perfectly cooked, and delicious. The house wine tasted like grape juice but at least was very cheap. Great views of the square in Varenna. Overall, a great lunch spot for pizza.

We are here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The pizza here was excellent. The mushroom tagatelli was amazing! The salad was average, as was the buckwheat pasta with potatoes (I'm gluten free, so it was good to have the options). Service is excellent, and the staff was very gracious to our children.

Lovely position in San Giorgio Square, great service, friendly staff. We enjoyed eating here most nights as our apartment overlooked this restaurant so not only was it handy it was a delight to dine here on balmy evenings with a glass of wine, eating good Italian food and watching what was happening in this lovely square. The pizzas and pasta... More

Lets start at the end--dessert--the Tiramisu is to die for so perhaps order this first. The pasta is also wonderful as are the pizzas and the house red is as good as many expensive wines. Altogether a most enjoyable experiencee
