Went here again yesterday and the food was delicious as always: this time the Vitello Tonnato was my favourite, followed by the linguine Di Astice (lobster) - despite that I typically don't even like seafood pasta. This innovative Italian cuisine is so gorgeous! Now during summer time you get a beautiful view from the terrace. Service is fine, although not... More

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
