Great day spent at cooking class

We had 6 hours in a cooking class with lunch. Great hosts, real lesson in Italian cooking with plenty of wine, food and atmosphere. Highly recommended, if you are in Varenna it is a must do, thank you Moreno and family.

I had a very nice meal created and served by Chef Moreno and his charming wife Rosella. I am a vegetarian and there were tons of choices for me. Plus Chef would have modified a dish to suit my tastes. Chef drives to your hotel, picks you up, you travel up this twisting winding road with spectacular views, you eat... More

This's was the most fun thing we did on our visit to Lake Como. We took Chef Moreno's cooking class. It was a treat. He is charming and the food was terrific. Highly recommended.

We were guests at the B&B owned by this family, and chose to have supper here on our first night in Italy. The restaurant was across the road in the lovely small village of Gittana. The restaurant was very quaint and friendly - it was decorated with a lot of memorabilia that made the place feel relaxed and welcoming. Moreno,... More

One of the best meals I've ever had anywhere, Italy included. Not open on Wednesdays. Limited menu, so if you want them to serve the fabulous risotto with mushrooms and apples, call days in advance.

We were picked up in Varenna by the chef's pleasant wife at 7:30 pm and did not arrive back at our hotel until nearly 11 pm. This is much longer than any of us would have chosen to spend for a meal. The restaurant is up a windy road from Varenna and since we were driving a van we were... More

On our recent trip to Varenna, we had dinner at Il Caminetto. Chef Moreno and his wife were amazing. Between the two of them they wore many hats: Driver (we were picked up at our hotel and driven to the restaurant and back home by the chef's wife); waiter (the chef and his wife took our orders, delivered the food...

This restaurant is truly a unique experience! Nestled way up in the mountains above Varenna, a van will pick you up and drop you off which in our case turned out to be a very late evening. The food is excellent but being able to chat with Moreno who owns, runs the restaurant after a fabulous dinner was a real... More
