“Good food for a fair price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

You can eat nice Italian dishes here and enjoy regularly live music on the terrace. Very nice atmosphere sipping a glass with some nice chill-out music on the side of Lake Como

“Fabulous location, good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

From the terrace of Il Molo, the view over the Varenna harbour area is superb. We had two wonderful late dinners there, enjoying the view, the cool breeze and the general atmosphere.
The food was good, but not great. We tried the soup, pasta and pizza over those two nights. None of the individual; dishes we as good as we have had at other Varenna restaurants, but they were perfectly acceptable and served by friendly efficient staff. They have a wide variety of options on both the food and drinks menus.

The prices are very reasonable - excellent value for money.

The back street restaurants have the better food, but we rate a night at Il Molo as an essential part of the great Varenna holiday.
