We went there with some friends from Poland visiting and were all surprised by the quality of food even though I saw good reviews before. We had vitello tonato which was completly different that normalky, but excellent. As was the steak and choice of desserts. Strongly recommended, not cheap, but for sure worth the price!

Beautiful place, we had lunch at the Bistro, the view is breathtaking. Really friendly service, good food, fair prices. Highly recommended. I want to come back as soon as possible. It is a few meters from the upper station of the cable railway.

I travelled here solo to get some much needed R&R and to eat some great Italian food. I wasn't disappointed. Each of my meals here was superb and they also had menus in English, which was an added bonus, given my limited Italian language skills. The view was also absolutely superb, looking down over Varese from the top of Sacro... More

Beautiful location ontop of Unesco heritage site-sacro Monte. The restaurant overlooks what feels like all of Italy. Wine list is limited to Italian wines ranging from €15-300. There are a few things that could be improved such as a tweak to the service to bring it up to Michelin standards. I would change the chairs too. But when reviewing the... More

I spent the best couple of days I haven't done in a while. The place is unbelievable with a breath taking view. I had dinner with my husband and that was something else. The room was busy but the food and the service was impeccable, I had the most amazing glazed duck I've tried in my life. The room we... More
