Awesome interior - it's its own ambience

This place is quite the curio place with an exceptional eclectic charm that leaves you wandering around between courses to check out all the stuff on the walls... reminds me of some the olde quant English pubs I've been to.

Dario was a great host, and the atmosphere is amazing. We let Dario select the courses, and the house wines were very good and nicely priced. The food was very good and creative. One should not miss this place when in Madesimo. The atmosphere is funky old customs house, and very eclectic. Overall, a magical evening, and our group of... More

A fellow hotel guest from Milan told us about Dogana Vegia, or we'd never have discovered it. It's a good 35 minute walk up the valley from the village centre (not the 20 mins suggested by other reviewers) and we had to call them twice to be talked in! But we were so glad we'd made the effort. It's a... More

Great food, friendly people very bizarre ambiance with fun collection of strange objects on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. Not cheap but we go back each year.

We've eaten at Dogana Vegia several times, most recently in December 2012. The best way to experience this restaurant is to ask them to bring you the food they have prepared. Course after course comes out to the table, each small but tasty, and after a while you realize they've brought out 6 or 8 courses. I've never been able... More

We ate lunch here on a glorious sunny day in August after a short hike from the town center. Sitting outside, we enjoyed the great food and the spectacular views with a cool breeze blowing just right. The local dish "pizzocheri" was excellent and so were the platter of cold cuts and assorted cheeses. You can't beat this place!
