Great pizza!

We stopped in on a rainy day, so the number of seats available inside & in the covered outside were appreciated. The pizzas were extremely good - and in my opinion were a better option than the typical pasta dishes (which looked fine, but unremarkable from other area restaurants). I think it's a... read more

We chose the Grill for a low key dinner after a long day. The cafe is very cute and comfortable. The pizza we ordered had no seasoning and was not tasty. The house carafe of wine was "ok". They brought the wrong dessert, a large piece of apple tart, and when told it was to be the berry tart they... More

The people of Italy are so nice. At almost every restaurant, we are treated with the most hospitality, whether we order big or small. In this case, we are at the Hotel Royal Victoria in Varenna on Lake Como. We are having dinner at the hotel and there is a wedding in the dining room, so we eat in another... More

On first appearance, this restaurant comes across as possibly the most upmarket and classy establishment in Varenna. Sadly the food and the service just did not reach the levels the decor and hotel reflects. One waiter in particular was very grumpy and everything seemed to be a hassle. Other waiters were perfect though. The food was good but nothing mind... More

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 split a pizza: the calzone pizza with fresh... 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
