“Borgovino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Excellent dining experience, the best we had in Varenna. The place is very small 14-16 people and the reservations are suggested. We were there in the off season (October) so we were lucky to get a table. Great experience, superb service and the food was simply one of the best meals we had during our stay in Italy.

“delicious lunch and dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Excellent and cozy. Worth seeking out. I would not recommend attempting to go with more than four people. There was a table for eight that was seated just before us that understandably overwhelmed the staff of this very small restaurant. The waiter apologized and explained before we even ordered. We were just a couple and in no hurry so we enjoyed the wait.

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

My husband and I had dinner here last Tuesday and it as flawless The food was unbelievably delicious, presentation perfect and the service matched the meal. This was as good a meal as we have had anywhere in Italy. We found the restaurant by accident as it was only one block from the apartment we rented.

You will not be disappointed!
