We booked one night at this hotel and wish we had stayed longer. The most breathtaking view from our balcony that I have ever seen. It looked down over the town of Varese and the lakes. The room was very quaint and clean. My son and I had dinner at the restaurant on the terrace. It's true it is expensive... More

Had the dinner for special guests. Especially was just the price. Appetizer was bland. Main course tasteless. Truffle gnocchi not tasted like that.The Wine is expensive. The Service is attentive and nice.

The Colonne restaurant on Sacro Monte above Varese offers an outstanding dining experience. Chef Silvio Battistoni used to run a Michelin-starred restaurant down in the lowlands but (or so it is said) he got bored with the foie gras and decided to cook simple things instead. Well, if I can have his two variants of pork belly (crispy and melting)... More

We booked this hotel as it was enroute home to England. We stayed one night with two dogs and it is the most friendly family run hotel I have ever stayed in. The hotel and restaurant are in a most beautiful area and the village is worth exploring for its amazing church and views. The restaurant has a terrace with... More

Having arrived late at night, Ristorante Colonne was our only option for dinner. It was very formal (a jacket is recommended) and suitably expensive. Perhaps if we'd wanted a fancy meal as a treat we might have appreciated it more, but it was a little stiff and expensive for our tastes.

The impeccable food at the Ristorante Colonne is worth the drive up the mountain. Chef Silvio is a creative genius when it comes to food, and his staff is attentive and charming. Having dined at this restaurant over 20 times, I should be able to give my opinion on the best dish in the restaurant, however everything I have tasted... More

We stayed at the Hotel Colonne, and kept returning to its restaurant for dinner each night, as every meal was an amazing and wonderful experience. Silvio manages to give his careful attention to wedding parties and individual guests all at once. Each dish is a triumph of imagination, perfect ingredients, and inspired technique. An extra pleasure is the setting, on... More
