We had the tremendous pleasure of staying in Chef Moreno's bed and breakfast which is right across the lane from Il Caminetto (the restaurant). Our family of 4 stayed 2 nights and attended Chef Moreno's cooking class which was one of the highlights of our trip! The food was fabulous and we really enjoyed learning how to prepare the meal...

We were lucky enough to be staying right in the town of Gittana, just a little up the hill from the tourist town of Vareena so Il Caminetto was our neighbor. Lucky us! We wanted our whole Italian experience to be authentic and neither the restaurant Il Caminetto nor our apartment (more like a little house) booked through Alessandra of... More

While staying in Varenna we visited Il Caminetto Restaurant for dinner. The Restaurant is up in the hills above Varenna and we were collected from the main Piazza in Varenna with another couple, who had also booked, and driven to the restaurant by Rosella, the Chef's wife. The drive up was a prelude to an enjoyable evening, with wonderful views... More

We recently asked the Chef to conduct a cooking lesson for a group of 10, and the experience was nothing less than perfect. We had read all the great reviews posted on TripAdvisor, and decided this was something we had to do as part of celebrating in Como our 25th wedding anniversary. The Chef was great, helping us to arrange... More

We were staying in Varenna for a couple of days during our honeymoon and read some great reviews of this cooking class online. It exceeded our expectations on every level. Chef Moreno picked us up at 10 a.m. in Varenna and provided cappuccino / espresso upon arrival to his restaurant. We had such a fun day watching his cooking demonstrations... More

We booked the Cookery Demonstration via email from the UK because we had heard good things about it. We were not disappointed! We arrived "under our own steam", having walked from Perledo but Chef-patron Moreno Maglia is happy to collect guests from Varenna. Fourteen of us assembled in the cosy, rustic dining room - the restaurant has been in the... More

We are so fortunate that we decided to try Il Caminetto! I thought it a bit unusual, the pick-you-up-at-7:30 bit. Was it not a good enough place to get people there on their own? But then a lot of visitors to this area lack a car, us included. So I made a reservation and Rosella picked us up, along with... More

We were collected promptly at 7.30pm from the piazza in Varenna and safely driven to Il Caminetto by one of our hosts, Rosella. The restaurant is traditionally decorated, with a brick bar and open fireplace, which makes for a cosy atmosphere. For entree, we enjoyed a plate of delicious home made pates and antipasto vegetables, followed by a tender veal... More

Don't know where to begin with this, the entire experience was so enjoyable. We only had time to enjoy dinner with Moreno and Rosella. We felt like honored guests in an Italian relative's kitchen (in this charming 500 year old building!) Moreno (owner, chef, server, chauffer) kept bringing us food to try, in addition to what we had ordered. His... More
