The wow effect on arrival quickly dissipated when a wine glass was knocked over by the waiter with barely an apology and the need to request a refill ( for which we were charged). The building and garden were stylish and create a nice ambiance. The wine was very good, but the food with little exception left a lot to... More

We had a really bad trip to Varese, the thing that made it worth it was the dinner at Da Annetta. The portions were small but it was like art and music made in food. Just a wounderful experience! Dont miss out on this place!

We had a quiet weekday night dinner here and were very impressed by the food. All around a great meal, though the wine was a bit more expensive than we'd gotten used to by this point in the trip. A pretty restaurant.

We have been to this restaurant a few times hence choosing it for a special occasion. Well the service was slow, the food is nice but there could be more on the plate. But the worst thing was that the waiter we had took our coffee order and then his shift ended and he went home. We were left sitting... More

The restaurant is in a small street in Capolago, not far from Lago di Varese. The building is itself quite beautiful with a large garden, and space for eating outside as well as in. (It was too hot to sit out when we visited!) Service was very good and efficient. The helpings were on the small side, but were of... More

Initially promising, swiftly disappointing. Atmosphere of elegance and affluence translated sadly to to pretentiousness. Quality of ingredients was high and presentation excellent but most dishes lacked balance and delight. Some mediocre, one very poor indeed. Excessive salt. Good wine. Eye-wateringly expensive.
