Everything about our visit was wonderful. Even though we arrived very late on the first night, Silvio made sure that dinner was delivered in his unmistakable style. I would highly recommend this hotel for it’s location, amazing food and it’s warm and friendly staff.

My my and I had Sunday lunch out on the veranda, stunning views looking out over Lake Varese and adjoining countryside. The easiest way to the restaurant is via the Funicolore only 1 Euro each way. Really recommend this restaurant.

Silvio and his team are amazing chefs who prepare mouth-watering food that is sure to delight all. The only challenge is the service. It usually happens in Italy when there is a large party of 10 or more. Service is disproportionately allocated to them to...More
