Best Ossobuco Ever

I went there with my family in a cold night. We decided to eat only a secondi piati - Italians usually have an appetizer, first and second courses, and dessert - because we weren't that hungry. I got an Ossobuco with mashed potatoes and my dad got a Tagliata. They were both very delicious. Very... read more

We just happened to stop in on a one day visit and it was wonderful; the garden, friendliness of the Hosts/owners. Could you share the zucchini soup w/basil recipe?

I wandered into La Villa thinking it looked interesting and may be a nice place to eat over the next few days while I am staying in Chiavenna. I was met by an older man and I explained I just wanted to pop my head in. He showed me the dining room and then his daughter showed me the garden,... More

We were quite a large group on a rainy evening. We ate in the tent which started to leak after a heavy rain and spots of swamp started to form next to the tables. The large group seemd to overpower the present staff which provided a very slow service. Food was nice but the overall impression wasn't positive. The place... More

We have dined at "La Villa" several times and always have enjoyed the very good food and wine. The hospitality and friendliness of the owner Sandro [his wife is the cook] and his staff were especially enjoyable. This considerably added to the charm of our visit. Dining out in summer "al fresco" in the garden was particularly delightful [weather permitting]... More

We enjoyed many dinners and lunches since the restaurant opened. Delicious food in many courses - great selection of wine (I recommend to chose from the menu - the house wine is fairly basic) - fantastic desserts - coffee with lovely biscuits. And free flow of grappa and limoncello. Great surprise at the end - a fixed meme price that... More

The place is really a Villa , probabli form the 1800's , adapted as restaurant . We were greeted from the owner and then handled to a waitress ( but at... More

Den guten Ratings von Tripadvisor folgend reservierten wir für ein sonntägliches Abendessen einen Tisch in La Villa. Von aussen wirkt die Villa sehr elegant, aber im Innern bodenständig und gastlich. Ganz toll ist der Garten, wo ebenfalls gegessen werden kann; entweder auf einer Terrasse, oder sogar im Grünen. Die Speisekarte ist in Ordnung; man wählt zwischen jeweils vier verschiedenen Antipasti,... More

We ate at La Villa on a Monday, when they happened to be open (they close on a Tuesday instead). The hospitality was outstanding, and the food was really very good, overall by far the best meal we have had in Chiavenna. It's a beautiful house and garden too. Looking forward to returning!
