Good Food & Atmosphere

With few restaurants open to choose from, we ate dinner here two consecutive nights. We started our fist meal with a ham and cheese appetizer which was delicious. The cheese was a creamed cheese mix with walnuts and is definitely worth trying. For our main course we took our server's advice and... read more

The pizza is AMAZING!!! Get the kind with Bufala cheese. I am back in Seattle and I am still dreaming of this food! Mohammed is a pizza genius! Super nice staff such as the ever -attentive Martin, sweet Francesa, and hard working Renato. Their soups are also very good. Easy to visit as a single woman.

Flailing around in town w/o a precise location in mind, we ended up here. Good meal at a good price. Looks like this place is the sister to the Victoria Restaurant (more dark wood & candles & oldish atmosphere), it's well lit and modern. Fast service, kid's menu, enjoyed it.

Not wanting to spend a lot on dinner this rainy night, we ducked into the Royal Victoria's grill instead of it's glitzier regular restaurant. We were surprised to find schnitzel on the menu and it was delicious! The Grill is a great place for a quick and affordable lunch or dinner.

Important: The review is actually about "Royal Victoria Pizzeria", the building with huge windows on the central square of Varenna. This is not the building on the photos, but according to the website it is the same place. We were having a dinner with colleagues in this place. To start with, it was rainy and cool on the streets, but... More

We ate dinner here and while the setting was very pleasant the food was just ok. The restaurant is located on the main square and has a glass enclosed "outdoor terrace". I had the chicken in cognac sauce and my wife had the veal escallops in mushroom sauce. My chicken through beautifully presented was a little bland. I had high... More

We sat in the outside conservatory with the old church in the background, the restaurant was modern, with a clean, crisp feel. Food was great, from the risotto to the lasagne and pizzas. Staff were friendly and service was to a good standard. Kids ate everything with 6 of us eating and drinking for a very reasonable price and the... More

Waiters are very helpful and some speak English. Their food is high quality. The salmon and risotto was very tasty along with very fresh salad.
