Quatro Pass osteria is a busy place. I had dinner there on the recommendation of the Albergo Milano front desk. The place was filled with visitors mostly from the near by hotels & albergos, the attention was prompt and efficient, following italian habits, dinner is ussually served, or should I say service starts around after 20:00. Varena is an small... More

We saw that this place had very high marks on review, and we decided to try it out. The praise is well-earned. The food is great, and the staff are open and welcoming. We liked it so much we went back for dinner a second time.

We stopped in to Quatro Pass and got a table on a Friday night in October without needing a reservation. We ordered some house rosso, which was more than fine as most Italian house wines are. The service and the atmosphere were efficient and pleasant. I ordered a lake fish marinated with vegetables. I think it was good, though a... More

My wife and I ate at Osteria Quatro Pass on a Tuesday night. We had reservations, which is essential at these smaller intimate restaurants. Service was great, everyone was very friendly, our waiter in particular helped me select a wine that was insanely good, probably the best I've had of any of my trips to Italy. The food was absolutely... More

We had a fantastic Sunday lunch at this lovely family run restaurant. The food was top class, fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked, with vegetables full of flavour. The service was great, professional yet friendly. We were delighted to have stumbled on this restaurant by chance, and would highly recommend it.

We shared the mixed fish appetizer, which was very interesting and delicious. I had the pumpkin gnocchi with taleggio sauce and my husband had the ravioli with porcini mushrooms and truffle oil, both of which were unbelievably delicious.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and made a reservation for us, which was lucky as they were full. We had the salad, salted fish, ravioli, mixed grilled fish and shared an apple tart and all were excellent. Very good service also. Excellent restaurant.

My husband and I ate here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. When we arrived, we were asked if we had reservations and when we said, "No", they took us upstairs to a nice quiet area where one other American couple were enjoying their meal. We placed our order and soon two more couples were seated, ordered their meal which arrived... More
